There's an urban myth that anal sex can result in pregnancy. But according to Chris Peterson, a doctor at the University's Student Health Center, it is just that -- a myth. Peterson acknowledged, however, that "anal sex often accompanies vaginal sex," and pregnancy can result from the latter. Although anal sex may not carry a risk of pregnancy, it does not prevent sexually transmitted diseases or infections.
