91-Year-Old Woman’s Visit To The Doctor Reveals She’s Been Pregnant for 60 Years

It had been an extremely hard year for the 91-year-old chilean Estela Meléndez. Her husband had passed away and her health was on a quick decline. She has been carrying foetus in her womb for 60 years. Estela Melendez said she never knew she had been pregnant. She is from a little town in Chile named La Boca. La Boca is a small town in the Christmas commune, in the Cardenal Caro Province, Libertador General Bernardo O’Higgins Region, Republic of Chile. This old woman discovered her foetus after having a x-ray scan to help diagnosis after a fall.

After suffering from a fall, Estela had to be taken far from her village to the nearest hospital — only to discover something that would rattle her, the doctors and the world. As it turned out, she was pregnant, and there was a lot more to her story than meets the eye. In 2015, doctors found a lump in the womb of 91-year-old Chilean Estela Meléndez. This mass was indeed a fetus that had been there for over six decades. She thought for a long time that she had a tumor in her stomach. In reality, the old lady was carrying a calcified fetus … The old lady had become pregnant in 1955… The fetus therefore remained in her stomach for 6 decades.
