[ Sex ]

Gigiii - girl - 14 ans (23 November 2008)

Can i have sex even if i dont have my period yet ,does it change anything????

Tel-jeunes’ answer

Hello Gigiii! Sexuality is a preoccupation for a lot of teenagers.

You want to know if you can have sexual intercourse even if you don’t have your period. It is in fact possible to be sexually active even if the periods didn’t start yet. But it’s important to keep in mind that even so, a good contraception method has to be used. STIs (sexually transmissible infections) can be transmitted at all time. Also, there’s a risk of being pregnant even if you don’t have you’re menstruations, because we cannot know when they will occur for the first time.

Tell me Gigiii, are you ready to be sexually active? It’s important to make the difference between being curious about sexuality, having sexual desire and being ready to be that intimate with someone else. Did you know that legally, a teenager cannot consent to a sexual contact before the age of 16 years old? So legally, he or she cannot have sexual intercourse before that age.

I’ll let you think about it. Don’t hesitate to call us directly if you have other questions or if you wish to talk more with a counsellor. Take care!
