Pregnancy More Likely From Single Act of Unprotected Sex

Nature’s ambush: new research shows pregnancy more likely from single act of unprotected intercourse than previously believed

Lead research Professor Allen Wilcox from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences in Durham, North Carolina, said: “There apparently are biological factors promoting intercourse during a woman’s six fertile days, whether she wants a baby or not."

It suggests that couples who ‘take a chance’ with unprotected intercourse have the deck stacked against them. Intercourse apparently does not happen randomly. It’s more likely to occur on the fertile days, even though the average woman won’t know when these days are.

For whatever reasons (and we don’t yet understand the biological reasons behind this) a woman who engages in a single act of unprotected intercourse is more likely to get pregnant than was previously believed.

He said: “It’s not uncommon for a doctor to hear from an unhappily pregnant patient that she and her partner had taken a chance ‘just this once’. It may be easy to dismiss such claims, but our data suggest these women are probably telling the truth.”

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
