Hi XXXXXX,
Thank you for choosing XXXXXXX

At present the youngest pregnancy reported is at the age of 5 (five)years. Till date this is the youngest age. Her name was XXXXXXX Medina. Medically its impossible for a girl of age 1 or 2 to get pregnant. But medical miracles do happen which cannot be explained scientifically.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow-ups. If you like my answer kindly rate my answer and write a review as well.

Thank you,
Wish you good health.
Regards,
Dr Arif

So there is no chance a child at that age can get pregnant? Can you explain why

Hi XXXXXX,

Thank you for asking followup question. Yes, its unlikely for a girl at age 1-2yrs to get pregnant because both males and females become fertile in their teens following puberty. For girls, the beginning of their reproductive years is marked by the onset of ovulation and menstruation. A woman can get pregnant and have a baby as soon as she begins ovulating, or producing eggs. This typically occurs about a year after they first begin menstruating, which for North American women, usually happens between the ages of 11 and 12. Some women start ovulating late, though, and others, extremely early.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow-ups. If you like my answer, kindly rate my answer and write a review as well.

Regards,
Dr Arif

Is the risk unlikely or completely impossible meaning zero possibility??

Hi,

Medically its impossible, but as I mentioned before miracles do happen which cannot be explained scientifically. So I can strongly say its very unlikely.
