Overweight Chinese woman who claims to be a 'virgin' and 'never had a boyfriend' gives birth to baby boy
Medics finally agreed to perform an emergency C-section on the woman and she had a healthy baby boy on February 6, the second day of the new lunar year
A pregnant woman in China who has allegedly "never had a boyfriend" has mysteriously given birth to a healthy baby in spite of her claims that she is a virgin. The woman, who is in her 20s and hails from Guiyang, China, refused to accept that she was having a baby after she was brought into the hospital with abdominal pains. The doctors said that the educated woman, who was excessively overweight, did not notice that she was pregnant because of her large size.
Doctors also said that the woman was genuinely shocked when she ended up giving birth to a child after the staff told her that she was actually pregnant. The woman then started making life complicated for everyone involved by insisting the doctors perform a virginity test on her before doing the C-section, Mirror Online reported.
According to the Guiyang Evening Post, the incident took place at a hospital in Guiyang, the capital of the Guizhou Province, on February 6. The woman ended up in the hospital's emergency department after she had to be helped there by her parents. The staff was shocked to find that the woman was completely oblivious to the fact that she had started going into labor.
The woman reportedly told the obstetrician when the news was broken to her: "Impossible. It's not possible that I'm pregnant!" The doctor, who declined to be named in the official report, said: "She demanded that we perform a virginity test on her. It was very frustrating."
The hospital staff reported that the woman insisted that she could not be pregnant because she "doesn't like men" and that she has "never had a boyfriend, much less sex". When the doctor then asked whether it could have happened during a drunken blackout, the patient adamantly said that she was "allergic to alcohol and doesn't touch booze".
The doctors finally suggested that the woman was overweight, with her physique clearly hiding the fact that a child had been slowly growing in her womb for nine whole months. The doctor said: "There was nothing more we could say to convince her that she was going into labor."
Medics finally agreed to perform an emergency C-section on the woman and she had a healthy baby boy on February 6, the second day of the new lunar year. The newborn boy, however, was given to the woman's parents after she refused to nurse him. According to some reports, the woman lives alone and due to her weight and irregular menstrual cycle, never realized she was pregnant. None of her friends had apparently noticed either.
The head of obstetrics at the hospital said: "It's not the first time we've had a mother who only realized she was pregnant right before giving birth. They are usually underage and lacking in knowledge about their physiology. But this patient is in her 20s and was educated, so we're particularly surprised." The report did not state whether the woman has planned to put the child up for adoption. It is still unclear who the father of the child is.
