A mind boggling claim is brewing in Kwekwe after a teenage girl (name supplied) eloped to a lover whom she says impregnated her after a steamy oral sex.
Girl (19) is two months pregnant and still a virgin.
The estranged boyfriend (name withheld) told midlands news that he was dumbfounded when his girlfriend told him she had skipped her monthly mensural cycle and had test confirmation of pregnancy.
He said he has been researching on how it could have possibly happened.
The boyfriend said that his girlfriend told him that she swallowed the semen during the oral insertion.
The semen then got released as urine and got clogged up in her vagina resulting in it figuring it’s way into the reproductive system where it fertilized her.
Gynaecologist and Teen Health Source contributor Dr T Mohammed said is very unlikely that a woman will get pregnant from oral sex. Pregnancy can only occur if semen comes into contact with an egg.
“The digestive system does not connect to the reproductive system. Therefore, swallowed semen cannot enter the vagina, uterus, or any other reproductive organ that would allow sperm to fertilize an egg”,
“However, combining oral sex with other sexual activities that bring the semen into contact with the vagina may result in pregnancy”,
“Swallowing semen will, therefore, not result in pregnancy under normal circumstances”,
He added that combining oral sex with other sexual activities that bring the semen into contact with the vagina may result in pregnancy.
“When a person swallows semen, it follows the same path through the digestive system as anything else that a person eats or drinks. This route does not offer a way to the reproductive organs and will not result in pregnancy” he said
According to the gynaecologists swallowed semen does not come into contact with the vagina, and by the time women urinate or have a bowel movement containing the remnants of the semen, it is impossible for it to get them pregnant,yet this was the reasoning of the girl on how she ended up pregnant.
Dr Mohammed said that women can only get pregnant from penile-vaginal contact when semen enters the vagina or another reproductive organ.
“Therefore, women who swallow semen and then have intercourse can get pregnant. If they do not swallow the semen, they should dispose of it in an appropriate manner. Any accidental contact between semen and the vagina may result in pregnancy”,
“As with many other biological facts, there are unusual exceptions to this rule involving people who suffer significant trauma or have atypical anatomy. However, these examples are extremely rare” he added.
The gynaecologist however, said “although getting pregnant isn’t a possibility with oral sex, getting a sexually transmitted disease (STD) — such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, warts, herpes, or HIV — is”.
