getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When I was a child, my parents did a thorough job of explaining how babies were made. I knew women had vaginas, men had penises, women had eggs, men had sperm, and babies were made when the sperm and egg got together. However, I didn't realize that the penis had to be inside the vagina for this to happen. When I got a new, male teacher in 2nd grade, I was petrified that his sperm would get my eggs pregnant. I could picture the sperm wiggling across the floor, crawling up my legs, and getting into my vagina, so I would sit with my legs crossed so tightly together my legs would fall asleep. After a few weeks of this, I asked my mom for a little more clarification, and I could tell she felt really guilty!
Women were impregnated by eating a lot of cheese
Up until I was 9, I thought that you could get pregnant from kissing.
I used to believe that if a girl swam in a public pool that a boy had peed in she would become pregnant
My parents had the sex talk with me relatively young, but apparently they didnt go into enough detail. I thought you could get pregnant just by touching a penis to the outer vaginal area. So when I was around 3 me and my neighbor were playing "Ill show you mine if you show me yours" and we touched our areas thinking it was sex.
I also wasnt aware that the human gestational period is a mere 9 months so for at least two years after this incident I had an immense fear that I was pregnant and would punch my stomach to "kill the baby".
I used to think that how babies were made was that when people got married, some magical force knew that they then wanted a baby and gave them one.
i used to think that:
1. women became pregnant if they loved their husband enough
2. babies developed in the stomach
3. babies came out the pee hole
I used to believe that one needed to marry to produce babbies
I use to believe that to get pregnant you simply had to rub your nether regions against ANY male regardless of species. Well, I use to have this big stuffed beagle and one night I fell asleep with it propped between my legs. When I woke up and realized what I had done I was so terrified I honestly thought I was going to have dog babies.
When I was little, for a long time I thought that when two people got married, the woman would become pregnant simply by magic. I also thought that that people gave birth through something like a C section, and that somehow the amount of times someone magically becomes pregnant depends on race. Not quite sure how I came to that conclusion...
When I was 6, I believed that birth control pills were eggs, and women would take them when they wanted to get pregnant. My grandparents were catholic and had 13 children. I asked my mom why grandma took so many "birth" pills. She was so confused.
I used to think that, when a female ovulated, if the egg stuck to the inside of the uterus, she got pregnant, and if it didn't, she had a period. Obviously, they missed a key point when they taught us about women's bodies in school!
i swear this is a real memory i have.... my mom told me when i was very young (maybe around 7 or 8?) that girls got pregnant by eating a piece of the man's penis - like in a salad or soup. i shared this knowledge with a friend & my mom got a phone call from the friend's mother that i was making up sex stories.
i used to think that there waz 2ways to get pregnant,sleeping wit the oppisite gender and kissing. But now i know the truth!
When my mom gave me the talk, she added in that you could also buy the sperm to get pregnate.
So I thought if you wanted to get pregnate but you didn't have a husband or couldn't get pregnate form sex, all you had to do was go to any old pharmacy and look at the top of the shelf (where only adults could reach) and grab a jar a sperm and when you bought it, you would eat the sperm and you would instantly be pregnate...
When I was a child I used to believe that if the man sucked on the womes's breasts she would give birth to a baby.
I used to think the inauguration was when some one had sex to have their child.
I used to believe that all girls one day just became pregnant. Like at some magical age it just happened.
i thought that way a woman would get pregnant was she would eat the baby. and when i would ask her "mom did you eat me so i could be in your tummy?" Mom thought it was halarios!
I was raised in a very religious household and repeatedly told over the years that I could get pregnant even during my period. I took this to mean that you could only get pregnant during your period. When I lost my virginity at 17, I told the guy we didn't need to worry about a condom, because I wasn't on my period. Thankfully, I didn't get pregnant. Thanks, abstinence only education!
