Myth-Busting Monday: If it's my first time/I do it standing up/I'm on my period, can I get pregnant?

Every Monday EFC busts myths and take names, cutting through the misinformation, disinformation, and straight up nonsense to bring you the facts.

Although women are most at risk of pregnancy around the time they ovulate, women can get pregnant at all times of the month, in any position, at any time in their reproductive lives!  Many women use contraception inconsistently or not at all and may not get pregnant immediately, but this should not be taken to mean that they are not fertile. Even if they have been lucky a few times, they may not be the next time, so women who don’t want to be pregnant should assume that every sexual encounter puts them at risk of pregnancy and should use contraception.
