Can a girl really get pregnant the first time she has sex?
It doesn’t matter if it’s your first time having sex--it is possible to get pregnant. Abstaining from sex altogether is the best ways to prevent pregnancy, but if you decide to have sex, condoms and other birth control methods can help prevent pregnancy. Learn More

Preparing for the Pap Test
+ Don't have sex, douche, or use vaginal cream, foam, gel, or deodorants for 48 hours
before your test.
+ Don't get a pap test during or a few days after your period. Wait until all the
bleeding has stopped.
+ If you have an infection or a sexually transmitted disease (STD), get it treated before
you get a pap test.
