Sub-Saharan Africa, huh? Now there are some great scientific minds... Semen is poison to breast milk but doing prostitutes on the side of the road is hunky dory...

Well, there is something to be said for limiting sexual contact during lactation to put space between pregnancies--so yeah, it is kind of inadvertently scientific genius. Don't know about the roadside hooker thing, though :D


I think the "poison" idea probably came from the correct observation that if a woman becomes pregnant too soon after a birth, it's unhealthy not only for the woman but for the hext child as well.


Plus... if she's breast feeding and gets pregnant it could decrease the milk she produces for her nursing baby.
