My husband was sterile
My husband was sterile. He took tests after tests, some very invasive, he took hormones but nothing happened. They always gave us some other hope, new possibilities, new techniques but then every month the menstruation always came and I saddened. He wanted to adopt a child but I didn’t feel ready or capable, I wanted the child to be mine, I wanted him/her to grow up in my womb. I was not happy with my husband, I thought that any man in the world had the power to make me a mother except the one I had married. He said: “That’s it and that’s it, we were unlucky and, with this, the question is closed”. But it wasn’t closed for me. I felt in a cage, faded, wasting my best years.
