Blunder came to light after a 26-year-old man and his 24-year-old wife went to see an obstetrician about their lack of success.
This can only be termed as bizarre. A married couple who were trying to get pregnant for four years went to a doctor to determine what was wrong, since they were not successful.
Turns out, they were having anal sex for four years.
According to The Sun, the extraordinary blunder came to light after a 26-year-old man and his 24-year-old wife went to see an obstetrician about their lack of success.
When the doctor, Dr Liu Hongmei investigated further she found out the woman had regular sex but that it was "unusually painful" every time.
While the doctor, at first thought it must be some sort of disease or disorder, further examinations found the clueless couple from Bijie city in China’s south-western Guizhou province, had been having anal sex all along.
The story was first reported by China’s Guiyang Evening Post.
Further tests confirmed this and amazingly found the wife was a virgin.
Speaking to the media, Dr Lui said, “Four years of marriage and neither the husband nor wife knew how to get pregnant. Couples so lacking in general knowledge are very rare.”
The doctor then reportedly handed the couple each a sex-ed handbook and also gave them "guidelines" before they were sent home.
The advice appeared to work, as news of the wife’s pregnancy arrived just a few months later.
It turns out that they reportedly informed the doctor that they were finally expecting - and sent 100 eggs and a live hen as gifts.
