Failing to conceive

Dear Aunty Lisa

I am a young woman aged 29, I have been married for six years now and I am failing to conceive. I have seen the doctors and they say there is nothing wrong with me. My husband keeps sending me to different doctors who say the same thing. He was very frustrated the last time I suggested we go together and he refused insisting there was nothing wrong with him. I am so clueless and at a loss for ideas, what can I do? – Dudu

Dear Dudu

I am sorry for what you have been through. A child is a gift from God and I have no doubt that God has a perfect time for you. It is good that you sought the medical advice and the doctors have confirmed you are okay, meaning that you can have a baby. You are right that your partner needs to consult the doctors too; this is an issue that takes two.

Your husband is just being a man and defending his ego, it will be difficult for him to accept that he cannot conceive but it is best that he gets medical advice. Keep talking to him and stress the importance of going together without accusing each other of anything. He needs your love and support and you both need to stand by each other every step of the way. – Aunty Lisa
