Up until now, am very certain that more than 99 percent of us all would never imagine that anyone could get pregnant via anal sex, but biology has once again proved us wrong.
According to Dr Brian Steixner, a urologist at the Jersey Urology Group in Atlantic City, he came across the unthinkable case while he was still a medical student.
At the time, Dr. Steixner, was part of the team caring for a woman, who was born with a rare medical condition called ‘cloacal malformation‘.
This malformation happens when early in pregnancy, the rectum, urethra and vagina fail to separate into different tubes.
Now according to Great Ormond Sreet Hospital, this simply means that urine and faeces drain into a common channel which opens in the perineum – where the anus is normally located.
This malformation occurs one in 50,000 births – and surgery is usually used to correct this defect. The surgery helps create three separate channels as well as two openings – an anus a vagina.
The lady who got pregnant via anal sex, had one of such surgeries but the surgery was botched which resulted ina fistula.
A fistula is an abnormal connection between organs – and in her case it meant her womb became connected to her rectum. Which means she menstruates through her anus every month due to her vagina being a dead end.
Dr Steixner said:
After doing a whole bunch of X-rays, we determined that she got pregnant from having anal sex
After a while, he was again interviewed by the sister magazine, Women’s Health, where he said the case : ‘It blew my mind.’
The baby was eventually born via a C-section.
