Pregnancy by shower head
 
Comment: I was talking to a friend (not sure where she got this myth/idea from) but
she said that if you used the shower head to have an orgasm or if you just
used the shower head to wash of soap from your vagina/bladder/other
private areas, you can become pregnant. I don't know if this is true (I
highly doubt it since there isn't any sperm in the water) but I was
wondering if it was.

Apparently some people think it is true because various answer sites like
yahoo answers, cha-cha answers, and a few other sites say that it is
possible, while one site I found said it is highly unlikely but it is
possible. There was only one site I found that completely agreed with the
totally impossible category.

What? Are they specifically talking about a situation where one person has masturbated on to the shower head and then another masturbates with it? It may theoretically be possible like that, but you could theoretically get pregnant "with" any object if somebody had just come all over it and then you inserted it in your vagina...

(eta) Using a shower head to wash soap from your bladder? Ouch! What are these teenagers getting up to these days?

Kidney? Spleen?

Oooh, oooh! "Intertarsal Ligaments"!

Oh, those private areas. I thought they meant like your bedroom or bathroom. I hate when someone deposits all over my vanity and doesn't clean up after. I have Clorox wipes in every room.

Oh well, if Yahoo Answers says it can happen, it must be true... :fish:

I can see some type of infection but pregnancy requires some sort of sperm donor. You think they would be teaching at least the basics requirements for making a baby.

Maybe these are people that believe in virgin births and that they are common things.

I blame those little scrubbing bubbles. They're always up to something.

Huh, "virgin birth". Did you ever hear such a silly idea. But, hang on, I've heard this one before....

You can! This does not render you sterile!

They work hard so you don't have to! :fish:

I'm worried. I'm a guy and I use the shower head to wash my arse all the time.
