Real Housewives of Durban star Nonku Williams has finally revealed that a doctor almost ruined her marriage life after he told her that she had rotten eggs.
The 41 year old had to try different things in order to conceive her last born son.
She called him her miracle baby as she gave birth to him after two failed in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedures.
Before going for IVF, Nonku already had two kids, one from a previous relationship and one from her marriage.
She and her ex-husband wanted to have one more child, but she learned after three years of trying to conceive that she was unable to have any more children.
“The doctor used the word rotten to describe my eggs. He told me my eggs were rotten and I would no longer be able to conceive naturally,” Nonku said.
Under pressure to conceive, Nonku decided to try in vitro fertilization (IVF), which is a series of procedures used to help with fertility and assist with the conception of a child.
“I had two IVFs that were both unsuccessful. I was trying for my last born. My husband and I had been trying the natural way for three years but were unsuccessful. I had two healthy children before then, conceived naturally, no complications even in my pregnancy, I carried them for the full nine months term, with no disabilities and my period was normal. But when we struggled with the last born, I was told about rotten eggs,” Nonku said.
With a three-year frustration and going back and forth to see her doctor, she was advised to try IVF.
“I was desperate to keep my marriage and very stressed. I didn’t even bother to think of going for a second opinion because I was under pressure to make the marriage work,” she says.
