Can a girl get pregnant even if she has never

Patient: Can a girl get pregnant even if she has never had a period.?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.comI understand your concern.Menarche or the first time a woman g ets a period is important as it shows that now a woman has started producing an ovum with a potential to get pregnant.If she never had a period before or did not attain menarche till now, she won’t get pregnant.A girl normally attains menarche in between ages of 11-14.Pregnancy is highly unlikely in this age group.Hope this was helpful,Regards.
