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!
When I was about 7 or 8 I liked this boy. Once we were at church and I chased him and kissed his shoulder. Then on, I thought I was pregnant. I remember thinking for over a year that I was going to die because I was only a little kid and now I hated the boy.
I thought that every time you had sex you got pregnant so I was really grossed out that my parents had had sex 2 times!
when my dad was little he told my grandparents that he knew how girls got pregnant...he told them it happens when a guy pees in a girls mouth! i will always feel a bit disturbed wondering where he got that idea from as a child
I used to believe that daddies bought seeds from the drugstore and put them in the moms' mashed potatoes to make babies. (Shame on my mom for that one!)
Until I was 7 OR 8 I BELIEVED that you couldn't get a baby if you weren't married, until my musik teacher got her baby, without being married.
I THOUGHT THAT JUST SLEEPING TOGETHER GETS YOU PREGNANT
When I was four, I asked my mom, "How does a baby get in the mommy's tummy?"
My mom looked up, sighed, and said, "You wish for one."
For a few years, I was really worried that if I accidentally wished for a baby, I'd end up a pregnant child.
I always thought that you could only start getting pregnant after you got married, at which point you would get pregnant randomly.
when i was like 7-8 years, me and two neighbour guys were playing and we had this secret spot where we used to play doctors and stuff. and ones while we were playing I had to take my pants off, and I don't remember how, but one of the guys held his penis close to my vagina, it wasn't inside me but it touched my vigina. Next day at school, the one in my class asked the teacher how to get a baby inside her stomach the teacher told the class, and said "the boy have to have his penis inside the girls vagina" and I remember what happned the other day. So I went around for 2 weeks or something worried I was pregnant lol. after I talked to my teacher and they told the girl have to have something called menstruation which I didn't have so, I was safe lol
When I was younger I wanted a little sibling pretty badly. I asked my parents how babies were made (you know, THEE question,) and they told me that you got them by praying. However safe they thought their answer was- my childlike faith was destroyed when for weeks I prayed for a brother or sister that never came!
i used to believe that you could get pregnent from kissing!!
and that i could fly!!
One time I was playing at a friend's house and we were probably both around the age of 9, but she had brothers who were in their late teens, and one of them had told her about sex, and either lied about it, or she had misunderstood, because she told me that in order to get pregnant, a guy needed to aim at a girl's private parts and pee in her!
When I was 5 years old, I really wanted a baby brother. My aunt told me that if my mom swallowed a pumpkin seed, she would have a girl. If she swallowed a watermelon seed, she would have a boy. So, I avoided eating both, and made my mom swallow a watermelon seed, which she "did". Nine months later, I had a baby brother. I really believed in it until we learned how it really happened.
Once my friend's little sister asked my friend how people get pregnant, so my friend told her that you will get pregnant if a bumblebee runs into a stop sign, and you're within 10 feet of it.
She believed it.
