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.

ABC NEWS


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."


An explanation.....


"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!

Just as well she lives in a time where she can get a C section otherwise she'd really be up that creek.

So he stabs her yet she gets pregnant by the other guy?

Man you have to feel for her in a way.

But there's an amazing Jerry Springer show here for the taking!

Yeah, I guess the 'former lover' stabs her, but she gets pregnant by the new fella!

If she didn't have a vagina...nah forget it, lets not go down that road!

Seems like the story has been published by reputable journals.

I'll try and explain, she was pregnant despite not possessing the necessary 'parts' for copulation.

She had however recieved a stab wound to the stomach shortly after performing oral sex on her boyfriend.

The doctors thus concluded the sperm made it's way to her reproductive organs through the hole made by the knife and made her pregnant.

Amazing really!
