G'day ATS, this is a bit of a weird one, BUT worth a read!
The story centres on a 15 year old girl that presented to doctors in a hospital in Lesotho apparently going into labour.
In 1988, a 15-year-old girl living in the small southern African nation of Lesotho came to local doctors with all the symptoms of a woman in
labor. But the doctors were quickly puzzled because, upon examination, she didn't have a vagina.
This amazing story gets a lot more strange my friends!
Yet by looking at her records the hospital staff realized the young woman was in the hospital 278 days earlier with a knife wound to her stomach.
The average pregnancy lasts 280 days. After interviews, they gathered that "Just before she was stabbed in the abdomen she had practiced fellatio
with her new boyfriend and was caught in the act by her former lover. The fight with knives ensued."
"A plausible explanation for this pregnancy is that spermatozoa gained access to the reproductive organs via the injured gastrointestinal
tract," the authors wrote.
Please read the article in its entirety for the whole story.
One more little quote please mods??
Infertility experts note the story, which resurfaced on a Discovery magazine blog, is not only a testament to Murphy's Law but one to arguably
nature's most impressive swimmers: sperm.
Murphy's law, you just have to love it!!!
All the best ATS, Kiwifoot!
