Hi, my story is similar to the one of the lady who wrote Virgin Pregnancy: My Story.
I was a pregnant virgin and I am now a doting mummy to a 9 week old baby and this shocks many people when I tell them.
Yes you can get pregnant without having sex.
I’ve had 6 boyfriends and have done some sexual stuff with them but I have never actually had full on penetrated sex.
My friend thought she was pregnant so asked me to do a test with her as a way of support and my test came out positive.
I thought because I wasn’t having sex I couldn’t get pregnant so I had not bothered with using any form of contraception and the only way I can explain what happened was his sperm must have got onto my private area and got me pregnant.
I was petrified of labour thinking it would hurt so much more as I hadn’t been stretched’ down there, but I ended up having internal exams (which were quite uncomfortable but didn’t hurt) and a fast labour (4 and a half hours).
I haven’t told anyone (obviously the father of my baby knows) because I was really embarrassed that I am a 20 year old virgin.
I wanted to write this purely because when I searched ‘pregnant virgins’ online I found nothing that said it was possible to happen and felt really alone about it.
