A 29-year-old lady has revealed why she got pregnant without sleeping with a man.
The Canadian, who gave only her first name as Lauren, revealed that she doesn’t care much about dating any man.
She also revealed that she grew up with a gland disorder that affects her body’s hormone production. This made her to seek a sperm donor and eventually become a single mum — against the advice of doctors and friends.
“Because of my pituitary gland, I went through puberty super late. I wouldn’t have gone through it at all without higher oestrogen levels.
“I really only started that because I was getting made fun of for being really flat chested, whereas everybody else was getting their boobs and everything at that point.
“The hardest thing was probably getting pregnant. Initially, my endocrinologist said it wouldn’t happen; that I’ll need to get an egg donor and spend tens of thousands of dollars on IVF. I felt really shut down. But he referred me to a fertility clinic anyway.
