Lack of knowledge can cause a number of problems and when a married couple is uninformed about sexual intercourse, it could lead to a lot of confusion. When a couple tried to have a baby for 4 years and failed, they couldn't understand what they were doing wrong. A visit to the hospital quickly cleared it all up.
After four years of trying to conceive and failing, a married couple from China went to the doctor to find out what could be wrong.
At first, the doctor suspected that the woman could be suffering from a gynaecological disease since she told him she found sexual intercourse painful.
However, after talking to the couple, obstetrician Liu Hongmei realised the couple were actually doing it wrong.
The 26-year-old husband and 24-year-old wife have been using 'the backdoor' instead of having normal intercourse.
The couple had been under pressure from their families to have a baby, according to a report by Unilad.
Dr Hongmei said it is rare that couples are so uninformed but it is a common thing for people to have misconceptions about sexual intercourse.
The doctor gave the couple a sexual education handbook and not long after the couple reported they are expecting their first child.
As a token of appreciation, the couple sent the doctor a live hen and 100 eggs.
