A woman decided to take to TikTok to share with her followers how she became pregnant despite being a 19-year-old virgin.
Samantha Lynn Isabel took to TikTok to share the story of how she discovered she was pregnant ay 19-years-old, despite the fact she was a virgin.
Although the young woman had fooled around with her boyfriend Alex, Samantha had never had penetrative sex. So when she realised that her period was late, the idea of her being pregnant seemed impossible to her – she had never heard of a virgin becoming pregnant before.
Despite it being very unlikely she was pregnant, Samantha decided to take a pregnancy test when her period still hadn’t arrived. Yet when it came back positive, she assumed it had to be a mistake. Believing it was a glitchy test, she decided to take another test, and then another after that.
Eventually, once all the pregnancy tests came back positive, Samantha had to admit to herself that somehow she was pregnant. Determined to find out how she booked an appointment at the doctors and they confirmed that she was five weeks along.

Feeling incredibly overwhelmed by the unexpected news, she told BuzzFeed News: “I did not feel ready to have a child.
“I had dropped out of high school twice to my anxiety disorder, [but] went back to finally fish. I [also] had intentions of going to college after graduation.”

Before telling her boyfriend she was pregnant, Samantha decided to figure out all her options. Yet abortion just didn’t seem right and she knew deep down, she wanted to keep the baby.
She added: “I was just nervous I wouldn’t be able to give him everything. But he has it all and more.”
Fast forward five years and she has her son Bentley and she is still with Alex. They’ve even had another baby boy named Theo, who has just turned one. Samantha confirmed that Theo had been conceived the old-fashioned way.
To those who are sceptical about Samantha’s story, Dr Jennifer Lincoln confirmed it was possible to BuzzFeed.
She explained: “Sperm has to get into a vagina in order for a 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.”
Although it’s a very rare occurrence, a pregnancy can happen without penetrative sex.
Dr Lincoln continued: “With fingering, if some semen is on the fingers that touches 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!”
To those who would like to avoid an accidental pregnancy, Dr Lincoln advises: “Keep the sperm out of the vagina, friends. And use a reliable form of birth control is there’s any chance of something like this happening. Having emergency contraception on hand for accidents like this is also a great way to handle an ‘oops’ moment.”
