A lady claiming to be a virgin has mysteriously given birth.

The young woman in her 20s - who hails from Guiyang, China - was rushed to hospital after suffering from abdominal pains.

Doctors say that the woman, who was very obese and had not noticed that she was pregnant due to her size, refused to accept she was giving birth and insisted medics should carry out a virginity test before carrying out a C-section.

However, the new baby boy was handed to the woman's parents after she refused to nurse him.

The hospital's head of obstetrics said: ''It's not the first time we've had a mother who only realised she was pregnant right before giving birth.

''They are usually underage and lacking in knowledge about their physiology. But this patient is in her 20s and was educated, so we're particularly surprised.''
