It was a not-so-immaculate conception.
I’ve seen my justifiable share of untamed teen being pregnant tales on TikTookay, however I believe this one takes the cake:
When Samantha Lynn Isabel was 19 years outdated, she realized her interval was late. Pregnancy crossed her thoughts, however she did not suppose it was probably, contemplating the truth that she and her boyfriend had by no means had penetrative intercourse. In truth, she’d fooled round, however by no means had sexual activity in her entire life.
Just to be secure, Samantha determined to take a being pregnant take a look at. It got here again constructive, however she thought it was a fluke. So she took one other one. And one other. And one other. And they ALL got here again constructive. She went to the physician, they usually informed her she was 5 weeks pregnant.
Before we dive additional into Samantha’s story, I believe it is necessary to go over some intercourse ed. Samantha informed BuzzFeed she thought the conception in all probability occurred from her and her boyfriend touching one another’s genitals throughout foreplay. She was additionally not on contraception.
I made a decision to succeed in out to gynecologist Dr. Jennifer Lincoln to get the lowdown on how somebody can get pregnant this fashion.
“Sperm has to get into a vagina in order for pregnancy to happen,” Dr. Lincoln informed BuzzFeed. “It doesn’t matter what puts it there — whether it’s a penis, finger, turkey baster, you name it — but once it’s there, it can travel through the cervix, into the uterus, and rendezvous with an egg in the fallopian tube and fertilize it.”
Dr. Lincoln stated getting pregnant with out penetrative intercourse is a comparatively uncommon prevalence, however nonetheless attainable. “With fingering, if some semen is on the fingers that touch or enter a vagina, the amount is likely lower than with penetrative sex. But like I’ve said before, it only takes one sperm that’s in the right place at the right time!”
When Samantha came upon she was pregnant, she was extraordinarily overwhelmed. “I did not feel ready to have a child,” she stated. “I had dropped out of high school twice due to my anxiety disorder, [but] went back to finally finish. I [also] had intentions of going to college after graduation.”
She thought-about abortion, however finally determined to have the child. “I was just nervous I wouldn’t be able to give him everything. But he has it all and more,” she stated. Samantha’s son, Bentley, is now 5. She’s nonetheless along with her boyfriend, Alex, they usually even have a child boy named Theo who’s turning 1 subsequent week. And sure, Theo was conceived the normal method, Samantha added.
If you are interested in the right way to keep away from an unintentional being pregnant just like the one Samantha skilled, Dr. Lincoln has some suggestions. “Keep the sperm out of the vagina, friends. And use a reliable form of birth control if there’s any chance of something like this happening. Having emergency contraception on hand for accidents like this is also a great way to handle an ‘oops’ moment!”
