Ina year-old girl living in the small southern African nation of Lesotho came to local doctors with all the symptoms of a woman in labor. But the doctors were quickly puzzled because, upon examination, she didn't have a vagina. Even the year-old girl could not believe she was pregnant. Yet by looking at her records the hospital staff realized the young woman was in the hospital days earlier with a knife wound to her stomach.
The average pregnancy lasts days. After interviews, they gathered that "Just before she was stabbed in the abdomen she had practiced fellatio with her new boyfriend and was caught in the act by her former lover. The fight with knives ensued. The girl arrived at the hospital with an empty stomach -- and therefore with little stomach acid around -- and doctors found two holes from a stab wound that opened her stomach up to her abdominal cavity.
The case report said doctors washed her stomach out with a salt solution and stitched her up. Infertility experts note the story, which resurfaced on a Discovery magazine blogis not only a testament to Murphy's Law but one to arguably nature's most impressive swimmers: sperm. Although doctors know that sperm needs a low acid high pH environment to survive, and would likely die eventually in the low pH of stomach acid, doctors also said that sperm comes in a protective fluid: ejaculate, a nourishing medium meant to protect the sperm.
Besides, "out of hundreds of millions of sperm if you knock out 90 percent of them, you're still going to have tens of millions Local girl gives in to sex sperm," said Dr. Once in the abdominal wall, Paulson estimated that the sperm could survive for days.
Paulson said in the early days of fertility treatments in the s, doctors injected sperm in the lower abdomen hoping for the coincidental encounter with an egg. The procedure, called DIPI or direct intraperitoneal insemination, has largely been replaced by more effective methods. Schlegel pointed out that although fertilization typically takes place in the fallopian tubes, doctors know that sperm can normally swim up and out of the reproductive organs into the abdominal cavity.
So it seems, Schlegel concluded, that the sperm could also be taken up by the fallopian tube, as could a fertilized egg. But some doctors are still suspicious of, or at least bewildered by the tale.
The girl's birth defect is well known and by age 15, doctors say most girls would have been doubling over in pain with an abdomen filled with menstrual fluid that cannot escape. The menstrual fluid of several periods would make it even more unlikely for a pregnancy to occur.
Sherman J. Silber, director of the infertility center of Saint Louis at St. Luke's Hospital in Missouri. Howard A. Zacur, a reproductive endocrinologist at Johns Hopkins, also had doubts. The authors of the report guessed a pregnancy could only be possible if the girl had ovulated once or at most twice before her pregnancy. Whatever the true story of the woman, and her now grown son, Silber said it could send a message to ordinary couples planning pregnancy. Silber said he sees many couples who buy into the idea that they should time sex to coincide with the woman's ovulation.
But Silber said the remarkable survivability of sperm means most couples don't have to change their normal sex lives at all. If sperm can survive for two or three days, that means the average sex life of an American married couple in living sperm swimming around the woman's body every single day of the week. Silber said because ovulation calendars and methods to detect ovulation are somewhat inaccurate, couples could miss ovulation and have sex too late. You want to have the sperm there ready and waiting for when you ovulated," said Silber.
