"Dear Pulse,

My name is Faith and I have been married to a wonderful man for the past 12 years with no fruit of the womb to show. My husband has been very supportive and has stood by me despite pressure from his family to get another wife.

But I am getting worried as I am not getting any younger and my chances of having a baby is growing thin by the day.

We have carried out several tests and the doctors keep saying there is nothing wrong with us but I am afraid the problem could be mine because when I was single, I lived the fast life like most girls.

I had my first abortion when I was in the secondary school and before I got married, I had terminated more than eight pregnancies. I am not sure if this has anything to do with my inability to have a child now that I desperately need one.

I need help fast before I lose my marriage.

Faith,

Port Harcourt."
