I'm 14 years old, and my boyfriend is wanting to have sex with me. I'm ready, yet I want to know when is the best time to have sex around your period so that your chances of pregnancy are at their lowest. I did read one post about it, but it confused me a little. I mean, what's the DAY that you're least likely to get pregnant? We are going to use a condom, but are there any other things we should use to keep me from getting pregnant? I also have no way of getting birth control, so that's not an option. But any help would be needed. Thanks.

There is no day that you are least likely to get pregnant, really. Please see these articles: http://www.scarleteen.com/reproduction/adv_time.html http://www.goaskalice.columbia.edu/0380.html http://www.goaskalice.columbia.edu/0182.html

Even for older women, well, figuring out when you are ovulating is quite difficult and involves charting your cervical mucus three times a day, checking your basal temperature, etc. Determining fertile times is something that is generally used by couples who want to conceive, rather than the other way around.

So, remember, you can really reduce your risk of becoming pregnant by using good quality condoms (not stored in a wallet, not spermicidal, Trojan not recommended) and knowing how to use them. And remember--LOTS of water based lube!

The laws of South Carolina are somewhat muddled. However, the balance of opinion is that the legal age of consent in South Carolina ia 16 years. Scarleteen cannot give consent to an illegal act.

Well, I can't explain it, because as far as I can see it doesn't make any sense .

The vagina is a stretchy tube. Most of the time, the sides pretty much touch each other - just like a pocket that doesn't have anything in it. It's only when it needs to - to contain a penis, or a baby, or a tampon, or anything else - that it expands and stretches out.

So it's not going to be any "wider" or "narrower" at one time or another. And the only "best" time to have sex is when you want to and are ready to .
