I used to believe that girls got pregnant by using the same wash cloth as a man. If the man had washed his "private parts" with the wash cloth & a lady washed HERS w/ the same wash cloth - BAM! You'd be pregnant. I always made sure to never touch my brother or dads wash cloth in the shower!
when i asked my mom how woman gets pregnant, she said that when mother is hugging her husband, they are rubbing theirs bellies and then, mother's belly becomes bigger and bigger, so there is baby inside.
When I was a young kid, nobody ever taught me about sex or reproduction. Once I got my period, I was afraid of touching boys because I was afraid of getting pregnant! I would avoid them like the plague. I'm not quite sure why I didn't realize that a whole lot more people would be getting pregnant if this was the case.
My friend told me that when she was little she used to think that a person got pregnant by when got thought the time was right, he would put a baby inside of its moms stomach.
My friend, when she was about 12 or so think that she can get bregnant if she smoke and eat chewing gum at the same time.. Of course, she was a blonde. And i'm not kidding. And no, that girl is not me.
My brother have the annoying habit of peeing on the toilet seat. When I was much younger, I used to believe I could get pregnant from sitting on it by mistake.
my sister used to believe that u become pregnant after u drink 2 litres of milk.
when people get married the girl will automatically get pregnant
i used to believe that women would get pregnant with their sarees tied to a kurta!!
Consequences of watching too many hindi movies!
I was at the local pool one day and was eating a huge bag of grapes. My mum told me that if I ate too many grapes I'd end up like the woman sitting near us. The woman was pregnant, but mum meant that I would get a bloated belly. Naturally I concluded that eating grapes made you pregnant!
I used to believe that men could get pregnant, so i thought that my dad gave birth to me since he named me, and I thought my mom gae birth to my two sisters since she named them
I thought if you ate alot youd become pregnant
That when a married woman was twenty and she got pregnant. She just got pregnant.
When I asked how babies were made my mum told me that the man and lady have a special cuddle which creates a baby in the lady's tummy. I was terrified of hugging a man or boy for years afterwards just in case!
When I was younger, I thought teenagers could get pregnant without having sex.
When I was little I asked how women got pregnant and my mother gave me the medical book which said that the man puts his penis in the woman's vagina. However, erections were not explained. As every penis I had ever seen pointed down, I decided that you probably had to go to the doctor, and the doctor would insert the penis in the woman's vagina. I totally did not associate this with having sex, which was what people did when they were in love, until I saw an erect penis.
When I was pretty young, maybe 5 years old, I was watching the news with my parents and there was a bit about teenage pregnancy being on the rise. Well I had no clue that there was a voluntary process involved in becoming pregnant; I thought you got pregnant randomly, like catching a cold. So for a few years after, I was worried that I would "catch" it and be one of those teenage mothers that the news was talking about.
I used to believe that God would just randomly drop a seed into your mouth from the sky (after you got married or course) and you would swallow it and 9 months later, you had a baby. I believed this until my mom told me the truth when I was 10
When I was a child, I had the "where do babies come from" talk explained as "a man gives a woman his seed...." Being rather literal minded, I asked my elder brother (the font of all knowledge, in my pre-school mind) what kind of seeds mom meant. He replied "poppy seeds." For many years afterwards I refused to eat poppy cookies or cake because I was afraid I'd get pregnant. I must have been in my late teens before the connection really dissolved.
I used to believe that... you get pregnant by getting into contact with a guy's saliva. Especially by sharing cutlery!
