Are you ready to hear something absolutely nuts? Good. Because we’ve got a piece of medical news that’ll leave you slack-jawed and stunned.
A woman has become pregnant from having anal sex in a case that looks like a world first.
Though this was thought to be biologically impossible, it actually happened to a woman in New Jersey thanks to a botched operation to correct her medical condition cloaca.
The women’s bladder, vagina and rectum did not develop properly while in the womb, causing intestinal, urinal and reproductive functions to all be performed through the same orifice.
She had surgery to fix the condition, but the procedure was seemingly performed by Dr Nick Riviera from The Simpsons and her uterus ended up being wrongly connected to her rectum. (You can see exactly where this is going…)
Years later she became pregnant, and Dr Brian Steixner of the Institute of Men’s Health at Jersey Urology Group in Atlantic City revealed to Men’s Health exactly how it happened.
“We knew about her condition, and we had followed her for a decade. After doing a whole bunch of X-rays, we determined that she got pregnant from having anal sex,” Steixner said.
“The obgyns couldn’t figure out a way to effectively deliver the baby through the rectum safely. So she had a C-section.”
If you’re worried about unwanted pregnancy by doing it, ahem, that way, then don’t fear – there’s more chance of you winning the lottery.
In a separate interview with The Independent Steixner described the case as “one in a billion and the rarest of the rare. I’m not sure it should be a big issue for women generally”.
