    Teenage pregnancies are something unusual but are quite common in most parts of the world. Despite of prohibition of teenage marriage such practices are still carried out across the world.

    Lina Medina is one such case. The Peruvian girl, gave birth to a baby boy at the tender age of just five years and seven months in the year 1939. She is the youngest mother to give birth in the medical history.

    Lina was brought to a hospital by her parents at the age of five years due to increasing abdominal size. She was originally thought to have had a tumor, but her doctors determined she was in her seventh month of pregnancy. Dr Gerardo Lozada took her to Lima to have other specialists confirm that Medina was pregnant.

    Dr. Gerardo Lozada even observed that the little girl’s mammary glands and sexual organs were fully developed at the time. Lina delivered a baby boy via a C-section on May 14, 1939 and named him, Gerardo, after her doctor.

    In the beginning, young Gerardo grew up believing that Lina was his elder sister and only came to know of their true relationship when he turned 10. Although Lina’s father had been arrested by the police on suspicions of incest and rape, he was later released due to lack of evidence.

    The identity of the man who made Lina pregnant was never determined.
