      There is no specific age of reaching to have periods or start to ovulate. Some start as early as 8 while others as late as 14 or 15. So yes, a girl can get pregnant before she gets her first period. Getting pregnant is related to ovulation. Because a girl can ovulate before having her first period, it is possible to become pregnant if she has sex when ovulating her first egg before it gets out as period.

      Hi Agee, well i don’t think it is possible to have a child if you have not yet started ovulating. But what you need to be doing now is studying hard so that you can make a better life and also that you may become a better person
