Quoting *~Stella's Momma~*:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Squeaky McGee:</b>" This is in teen pregnancy, so I'm assuming ... [snip!] ... I remain abstinent throughout my whole pregnancy for this exact reason. I'm surprised about how few people know of this."
Your unborn baby becoming pregnant, while you are pregnant with the baby, cannot occur for several reasons.
- During pregnancy, the opening between the vagina and the uterus is shut with mucus. As well as the closed opening into the uterus, the amniotic sac would be a substantial barrier, and the number of women willing to have sex between the time of their water breaking and when birth occurs is a very small percent.
- Any eggs present in an infant female would be immature and incapable of fertilization.
- Since the child will not have started its menstrual cycle, it is unlikely. While it is possible to get pregnant before a woman's first period (as menstruation is caused by the wasting of eggs, not their maturation, though infertile eggs are not typically released, and therefore not wasted in this matter) a woman can technically get pregnant before her first period, as that period occurs shortly after her first ovulation.
