Sexual health - NHS
Yes, you can. You can even get pregnant if you haven't had your first period yet but are going through puberty. Pregnancy, or more correctly, conception, happens when a viable sperm enters a viable ovum egg. Because eggs only live for 12 to 24 hours, sex has to occur around the time of ovulation for a pregnancy to occur - specifically, the five days before ovulation through to the day of ovulation. This period of time is called the "fertile window" and reflects the lifespan of an ovum and the lifespan of sperm around 5 days although, rarely, some sperm may last 7 days.
