She didn’t know I was sterile. She didn’t know I was not able to father a child because I didn’t tell her.
We dated for a year and a half and got married. I didn’t know I was sterile until after five years of marriage. I suspected there was something wrong with either of us because we had been having sex on so many occasions but none resulted into pregnancy.
I sought the help of a doctor and I was diagnosed as sterile. I was the problem. My wife was in very good condition. But I didn’t break the news to her. She had been trying so hard and didn’t want to burst her bubble. Also, the doctor assured me that all was not lost. He said, “It’s not the end of the road. There are drugs for your condition just that it takes a while for it to be solved.”
Just when I was deciding on treatment, my wife told me she was pregnant. She ran to the room shouting, “He’s done it ooo, my God has done it. Now me too can rest easy because I have proof that I’m also a woman.”
I didn’t know how to feel. It was baffling just as it was confusing. “My wife? Pregnant? How could this be?”
I booked another check up with a different doctor. I wanted to be sure whether or not the previous doctor got my diagnosis right. He too confirmed it and even went ahead to declare me impotent. I asked, “That means the probability of me getting a woman pregnant is zero, right?” He responded,”It’s not a zero possibility but if I were you, I wouldn’t count on it. Get some treatment first before thinking about possibilities.”
I knew right there that my wife had cheated. I broke down and cried for a while. We’ve been together for five years and the thought of her carrying someone else’s baby almost got me paralyzed. She’d been a good woman and a wife to me. She hardly could go wrong and I loved her so much.
I didn’t know how to deal with the situation. Somehow I wanted to confront her with the truth but the voice in my head kept telling me “The doctor didn’t say you have a zero chance of getting a woman pregnant. There’s a possibility of a miracle. What if this is my miracle?”
I kept thinking and thinking without an answer. When I got home that day, I found her on the phone, breaking the news of her pregnancy to someone on the phone. The glee with which she said it showed how happy she was about the pregnancy.
