Nollywood actress, Wunmi Toriola, has shared her journey with infertility after her marriage.
The actress, in a lengthy post on her Instagram page on Tuesday, October 12, narrated how she had to undergo some procedures before she was able to conceive.
Celebrating her son’s second birthday, she stated that he was a miracle to her and her husband.
Narrating her experience, Wunmi stated that she is sharing her story to ‘encourage’ someone.
She said, “I think its about time to tell my little story and this is to encourage someone. I wanted to rest after marriage before conception and boom “my supposed rest”finished ,no conception.
“I didnt see it as a problem until someone said “na so e easy,shebi she don dey married,she never get belle ”
“As the playful person i am,it didn’t hit until 6 months passed.Then it started to dawn on me. Voooooom i flew to fertility hospital but the annoying thing is “you need to go with your partner.
“Choi,that was a tough one because it sure sends signals like “abi she don commot her womb before??? Long story cut short, i was told there was no issue that it would come but eager me wont hear.”
Listing the number of procedures she had to do, she revealed that her miracle conception happened right before she was about to succumb to IVF.
“I had IUI 2 times, the last one, I started having funny symptoms of pregnancy,even without test i thought i was pregnant and was unnecessarily careful.
“One month passed,i did test,alas no conception…. i was mad with my self ,30 days of injection and “hardwork”again.
“My doctor would laugh me and would assure me there was no issue with us… Hmmmmmm,i lost hope in IUI and i was ready for IVF, then miraculously conception came…
“I wish i could explain the anger ,the sadness through those little time of waiting but just one day,i forgot all…
“This is to encourage someone that “you are not in this alone” Others have been through worse and they came out strong
In the process of waiting “dont be mean”.
Wunmi then went further to pray for her son, quoting Bible verses alongside her prayers.
“Your miracle is closer than you think and in all i held unto this word of God which says “There shall be none called Barren in thy land” My miracle turns 2 tomorrow october 13…Son ,you will fulfil destiny. Any one that curses you shall be cursed.
“Anyone who blesses you shall be blessed. Your name will speak better things than the blood of Abel Zion,you are known for signs and wonders. Your name shall continually be found in the things that please God. You will love God.
“I love you and i promise to protect you. And one last thing,God please give me long life to be there for this one and his siblings, Help me LORD..
“To everyone looking for a miracle,the set time is now and it shall not tarry and please dont take medicals lightly. Love from Your mum…13/10/”.
