  1. Can a baby can be born still fully inside the amniotic sac?
    Correct
    Incorrect
    No. It's not physiologically possible.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    It's rare, but yes.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Only if the baby is premature.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    There are only unverified historical accounts.
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Yes, but it's rare.

    The photo here (which was taken by award-winning photographer Robin Baker) captures a baby born still fully in the amniotic sac — something that only happens once every 80,000 births. It's called being born "en caul," but it doesn't harm the baby in any way. The mother of twins below, for example, simply broke the sac with her nail. You can learn more about this amazing birth here.

    Yes, but it's rare.

  2. Can you get pregnant without actually having sex?
    Correct
    Incorrect
    No,<br />dumbass.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    If your name is Mary, maybe.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    No, but you can get pregnant when using protection.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Yes, it's possible.
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Yes, it's possible.

    Is it common? No, not at all. In fact, it's highly unlikely. But it CAN happen. Here's one eye-opening scenario: If a naked couple is dry-humping and the man ejaculates near the vulva, the woman could possibly end up pregnant. Again, this is highly unlikely — but not impossible. Learn more about all of the ways you could get pregnant without actually having sex here.

    Yes, it's possible.

    When breast milk looks like strawberry milk.

    "Rusty pipe syndrome" happens because increased blood flow to the breast means blood ends up in the breast milk. It's totally safe for a baby to drink, though, and usually clears up in a week. Check out 20 more weird parenting facts here.

    Egyptian women inserted the dung up near the cervix before sex to block pesky sperm from going on their way. And no, it doesn't sound very healthy, but there it is. You can learn more about this and 12 other old-school birth control methods here.

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Yes, with help from science.
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Yes, with help from science

    This may sound alarming (and is, in fact, outlawed in many parts of the world), but it's actually an example of the wonders of science. Women with mitochondrial disease are at a great risk of passing down debilitating diseases to their offspring, but scientists have found a way to take the nucleus and DNA out of their unhealthy egg and put it into a donor's healthy egg — thus the term "three-person baby."
