A girl on TikTok got pregnant without having sex and a doctor said it’s possible
I’m sorry, WHAT???
As if 2020 wasn’t wild enough, there’s now a genuine virgin Mary. 26-year-old Sammi Isabel revealed on TikTok she got pregnant when she was 19-years-old without ever having sex.
And according to a doctor this rare occurrence is actually completely possible. I’m gonna need to sit down for a minute.

Sammi created a TikTok to share her bizarre story, which has now got more than 1.4 million views. In the video she says how her period was late and her boyfriend at prom had to get her some pregnancy tests, presuming they would come back negative.
She took one test which came out positive and so thinking it was a fluke she took more tests which all came out positive as well.
At a doctor’s appointment Sammi was told she was five weeks pregnant, despite never having penetrative sex. Sammi wasn’t on any form of birth control, though she and her boyfriend had done bits they had never gone the whole way.

Dr. Jennifer Lincoln told BuzzFeed whilst this is rare, it is possible to get pregnant without having sex as sperm can still get into the vagina in other ways.
She said: “Sperm has to get into a vagina in order for pregnancy to happen. It doesn’t matter what puts it there — whether it’s a penis, finger, turkey baster, you name it — but once it’s there, it can travel through the cervix, into the uterus, and rendezvous with an egg in the fallopian tube and fertilise it.
“With fingering, if some semen is on the fingers that touch or enter a vagina, the amount is likely lower than with penetrative sex. But like I’ve said before, it only takes one sperm that’s in the right place at the right time!”
The NHS also confirm on their website it is possible to get pregnant without having penetrative sex, they say: “It’s possible for you to get pregnant without having sexual intercourse if, for example: sperm get into your vagina – for example, if you or your partner have semen or pre-ejaculate on your fingers and touch your vagina, your partner ejaculates near your vagina or your partner’s erect penis comes into contact with your body near your vagina.”
After the initial shock Sammi revealed in a later TikTok she considered having an abortion but decided to have her son, who is now five-years-old.
Sammi is still with her boyfriend and they’ve also had another boy who is one-years-old.
