Sex Ed Lied To Us: It Turns Out You CAN Get Pregnant When Youre Already Pregnant

/ by / Tags:

Like puberty itself, sex ed is just one of those things that’s generally awkward and causes excess sweating, but is an unavoidable part of growing up. Whether you sat in a classroom full of other uncomfortably squirming sixth graders, or had “the talk” at home with your uncomfortably squirming parents, at some point we all learned the basics of the birds and the bees. That was when we learned important information like:

  • Yes, body parts do have anatomical names and no, “wiener” isn’t one of them.
  • Cooties are real, but they’re not as cute as you think they are.
  • You can’t get pregnant by holding hands and you definitely can’t get pregnant when you’re already pregnant.

Well, hold on to your sixth grade diplomas, because I’m about to tell you something you’re not going to believe.

Still,even though this kind of pregnancyis rare, I thinkthe only way to be sure to avoid it is abstinence. And also maybe wearing gloves while I’m holding hands.

I know not everything they told us in sex ed was true, but you can’t be too careful.
