can you get pregnant the first time you had sex? my professor told us before that hymen won't be broken when you have se for the first time and recently i did it with my boyfriend. i bled but not much so i don't know if it was actually the hymen that was broken or some other tissue (if there is..). when i saw the blood i was kind of panicky because we didn't use any protection (that's why i'm asking if it's possible to get pregnant the first time you do it..) i can just wait for my period but right now i couldn't focus with whatever i'm doing.i want to know the answer to this immediately pls..

Yes, you can get pregnant during the first sexual contact if you don’t use any protection and if the man ejaculates inside you. You should do a pregnancy test if your next period does not come.

The hymen usually breaks and bleeds during the first sexual contact if the penetration is strong enough. The hymen may not break if its opening is too large. Such women may never break their hymen.
