As if Infertility and childlessness wasn’t bad enough, it brings with it so many side effects.
For example, social. As many childless women can tell, socialising is now a nightmare.
Friends and cousins my age were all announcing pregnancies, throwing birthday parties, baby showers and I would be asking myself -Why me? When is my turn going to come? Will my turn ever come? Will I die childless? Will my husband leave me and remarry for his desire for progeny is so great? What sin did I commit to be left out of the parenting privilege ?
Effects on marriage. Hubby’s patience is growing thin. He’s blaming me for our situation. What can I say? I have little interest in things, even sex. It seems like a chore now and that which isn’t going to produce anything. I feel like a failed wife, I hate that my body isn’t co operating with my desire.
Personal: I am not the person I used to be some years ago. I have no hobbies, no job, no friends who will understand. I don’t feel like taking up any new hobbies or interests. I have only one thing on my mind – BABY. I don’t know when it will happen, I don’t know how but I can’t think of anything else.
