Hi All, I am a mother of two, aged 5 and 2 years. I have come here because I want to share my journey with women who are in the same situation I once found myself in. It is a long story, but I will try to make it brief. It started in 2012 when I got married to my DH. After a year, I realized that I could not conceive. Naturally, we had plenty of unprotected sex, but nothing happened. Of course, I had lived with this fear for some time. Let me open up a little bit. When I was doing my final year in high school, I fell in love with my classmate. One thing led to another, and he impregnated me. We felt that we were too young to give birth, so we procured an abortion. At that time we didn't have enough resources, so we combined a few coins we got from our respective parents and sought services from a cheaper doctor. As the saying goes cheap is expensive because the Doctor didn’t have enough experience in carrying out abortion, so he interfered with my cervix during the process. According to my doctor, it made the cervix to swell, and this makes it difficult for the sperm to penetrate and fertilize the egg in the tubes. This is why I ended up going for an IVF meaning that an egg must be retrieved from my ovaries fertilized in the lab and transferred to the uterus. So after years of failed TTC, we went to IVF and gave birth to our first born. When we wanted another child, we went for the same. So I am here to encourage mothers who are unable to conceive.
