To answer your question, you cannot become pregnant from anal sex. Pregnancy occurs when sperm meets an egg, which typically happens during vaginal intercourse. However, it’s essential to understand that while pregnancy isn’t a risk with anal sex, there are still other important considerations to keep in mind. For example, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can be transmitted through anal sex, so it’s important to use protection like condoms.
It’s always a good idea to have someone you trust to talk to about these topics, whether it’s a parent, a guardian, or a trusted adult.
