A young married couple in China desperately tried to conceive for four years but their doctor told them that they’ve been having sex the wrong way.
The couple, whose identities were never revealed, visited obstetrician Doctor Liu Hongmei for a consultation earlier this year, according to Guiyang Evening Post via The Star.
The wife revealed that having sex has been a painful experience for her, but she endured it in the hopes of having a child soon.
However, when asked about the woman’s medical history, the couple told the doctor that they’ve been having sex frequently.
“The couple are very young. The man is 26 and the woman is 24. They are very healthy, but even though they have been married for four years they could not get pregnant,” the doctor said. “Because of that their family gave them a lot of pressure.”
Dr. Liu initially thought that the woman could have some sort of gynecological condition, but upon examination, it was revealed that her hymen was still intact, and that they’ve been having anal intercourse over the past four years.
During the consultation, Dr. Liu gave the couple some advice and a sex education handbook as “guidelines” before returning home. The doctor’s advice turned out to be correct.
A few months after their consultation, the woman became pregnant. The couple reportedly broke the news to Liu by sending gifts to her at the hospital, including 100 eggs and a live chicken.
