Medical Doctors have disproved the idea that women can’t get pregnant by having anal sex as an Urologist has revealed he treated a patient who conceived after having sex with her partner.
A rare case saw one woman become pregnant after having anal sex
A surprising medical revelation has seen a doctor claim that it is possible for women to become pregnant through anal sex.
Dr Brian Steixner, a urologist at the Jersey Urology Group in Atlantic City, debunked the myth that you can’t get pregnant through anal sex after dealing with such a pregnancy himself.
Speaking to Men’s Health, Dr Steixner revealed that he had treated a woman with a rare condition called ‘cloacal malformation’ when he was a medical student.
This is a condition which only occurs in girls as they’re developing in their mother’s womb. Cloacal malformation can develop early into the pregnancy, meaning that the baby’s rectum, urethra and vagina fail to separate into different tubes.
The rare condition is normally rectified by surgery
This causes urine and faeces to drain into a common channel which opens in the perineum – where the anus is normally located – according to Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Normally this is rectified by surgery to create three separate channels, as well as an anus and a vagina. But when one woman in the US with this condition was operated on, a surgical mistake or a rare bodily reaction created an abnormal connection between her womb and her rectum.
Every month, during menstruation she reportedly bled from her anus – but her vagina was a dead-end.
With vaginal penetration impossible, Dr Steixner said that the woman only had anal sex before becoming pregnant. “After doing a whole bunch of X-rays, we determined that she got pregnant from having anal sex,” he said.
The woman became pregnant through anal sex alone
He later added that the unusual occurrence “blew his mind,” and that “they totally lied to us in 9th grade health class.”
Thankfully, the condition which makes such a pregnancy possible is very rare – only in one in 50,000 people have a chance of it happening to them.
However, in the case of the unfortunate woman who did get pregnant through anal sex, it was decided that a natural birth would be too risky, and so the woman underwent a C-section.
Dr Steixner, who never saw the woman again, describes the phenomenally rare pregnancy as his “greatest story ever.”
