“The couple were very young, the man 26 and the woman 24. They were very healthy, but, despite being married for four years, couldn’t conceive,” Guizhou province obstetrician Liu Hongmei told local paper Guiyang Evening Post. “Their family was giving them a lot of stress because of it.”
The woman told her doctor that sex was usually quite painful, which raised concerns about a gynecological disease. But upon examination, it was discovered that the wife was still a virgin. Hongmei credited her “experience” as a doctor for thinking to check the woman’s anus – confirming that the couple had mistakenly been having anal sex for years.
The couple, who hail from Bijie city in China’s south-west, were each handed a sex-education handbook and some “guidelines” before they went home.
Months later, the couple reportedly presented the doctor with a few chickens and 100 eggs as a thank-you gift – the woman finally got pregnant after an apparently more-successful attempt at sexual intercourse.
