Can A Girl Get Pregnant From Unprotected Anal Sex?
No. It’s not possible to become pregnant from anal intercourse — when the penis is inserted into a partner’s anus. But pregnancy can occur if semen is spilled into the vagina or into the vulva during any kind of sex.
Like unprotected vaginal intercourse, unprotected anal intercourse is a high-risk for many sexually transmitted infections, such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, hepatitis, intestinal parasites, HIV, HPV, and syphilis. Use condoms during anal sex to decrease the risk of sexually transmitted infections.
Some women and men enjoy anal sex, and others do not.
