i had a question about my friend who had sex without a condom for the first time and after that she had a little blood split, is there any risks that she might be pregnant ?

User avatar Hi legendary,
The small amount of blood is not related to pregnancy but by it being the first sexual encounter. This does sometimes occur and has no relationship to pregnancy itself. However, if the sexual encounter happened during the time period during the ovulation cycle, pregnancy is quite possible. The ovulation cycle generally occurs during the 1/2 way point of a menstrual cycle. For instance if a woman has a 28 day cycle, the 1/2 way mark would be 14 days and she would be considered fertile approximately 2 days prior and 2 days after (generally speaking).
