  1. the logic is kinda screwed. 19 days pregnant and she will not know it until say 19+14 days, then she wont know she is pregnant for 33 days and not 19 as this link seems to indicate.

    or else is it a virgin can be 19 days pregnant and she wont know it?

    the statement is misleading. its actually logically flawed.

  2. i of course assume that it is possible for a virgin to have sex and yet remain a virgin. and this case applies only to virgins. the logic there on when one isnt a virgin is not looked into.

  3. No I mean that she won’t know that she was 19 days pregnant till she is, say 45 days pregnant… She is not a virgin when she knows that she is pregnant.

  4. Yes, I find it ‘interesting’ that the “# of days” a woman is considered pregnant also includes the growth of unmated egg inside her. The count starts from the first day of a women’s 28 day cycle. The ovulation and potential mating happens in the 14th day of her cycle.

    So what you say is (approx) right. A virgin could get ‘screwed’ on day 14/15 and find out on day 30. But extending your line of thought also leads one to conclude that virgins have a miscarriage once every month.

  5. Hawkeye, bingo!

    Ya, 19 days is the outlier, but not so much of an outlier – Ovulaton happens on the 14th day of the menstrual cycle, and fertilization can take place for upto 2 days after that. Add 3 days of the onset of menstruation itself and we have 19 days.

  6. Dear Ravi

    I visited your blog today and it was an interesting experience. Please keep up the good work. It is important that the world is informed about the beauty of India as experienced by the real people. Tourism Department of India is not as effective as the tales of real people.

    We would appreciate if you could also find sometime to become part of our travel blog at the following URL:

  7. How about South Indian virgins? Do they remain virgins longer than North Indian ones?

    And you should definitely help out the Tourism Department of India.

  8. Dear Ravikiran & commenters,

    Your conception of virginity is incorrect. Virginity is a state of mind.

    Please review your numbers in the light of this definition.

  9. There are lots of ways a “virgin” could get pregnant without being aware of it. First — and this probably happens for a lot of “virgins” — she might not be aware of the mechanics of infant production. It would be interesting to tally the number of people who’ve gotten pregnant without knowing how baby-making works.

    Second: unconsciousness, either natural (asleep — VERY asleep) or unnatural (anesthetized or drunk).

    And, of course, parthenogenesis. How many innocent men have been duped into marriage by women who’ve used the time-honored tricks of single-celled organisms to get themselves in a family way? It’s a tragedy.

  10. Ha ha ha!! interesting post!

    This post reminded me of an incident in which a “virgin” got pregnant (reasons unknown) and she didnt come to know about it till seven months that she was pregnant; she thought that she was putting on weight (err!) and she managed to hide the bump becos she was already fat. This incident occured in a village in kerala.
