Pregnancy and MMA
It's being reported that Cindy Dandois has dropped out of her fight with Gina Carano on account of pregnancy, and that she was actually pregnant during her last fight.
This an angle of female MMA that I hadn't previously considered. How do female fighters deal with this issue? I'm assuming that Dandois hadn't known at the time of her previous fight, but should she have checked? PG tests as a component of prepping for a fight? What about training-related sparring? Is this just a risk that any woman in a contact sport has to take into consideration?

How would a grown woman not know she was pregnant?
I don't think tests should be necessary at all. If you've been around situations where you could get pregnant, you check."That was the only way you could destroy me. Neither do I quail at death nor act in deference to any god. So drop your talk, I come resolved to die. But first, there are these gifts I bring for you."

It's not like pregnancies just happen. At some point they had to have unprotected sex or had a condom break or something. Don't you think if these things happened it would open someone's mind to the concept they might be pregnant?"That was the only way you could destroy me. Neither do I quail at death nor act in deference to any god. So drop your talk, I come resolved to die. But first, there are these gifts I bring for you."

Are you retarded? Most women with amenorrhea don't use birth control because they don't have periods and are therefore not typically fertile. Why would you even defend this point in the face of the thousands of women from every walk of life who are surprised they are pregnant?

Also, even if they are on birth control there are dozens of medications, antibiotics, all kinds of stuff that can interfere with it that most people aren't aware of. Being astonished that someone could be a couple of months pregnant and not know it is just ignorant. Now if she was 8-9 months pregnant and didn't know I'd be pretty astonished. Usually you have to be in the 250lb range before you can end up giving birth without knowing you were pregnant.
