Lauren is going to be a mother this year, in June. The journey to her motherhood was definitely not easy and it was full of random tirades from random people. The decision of this 29yo is totally against the advice of the doctors and friends. People never encouraged her to take such radical step. The girl is a virgin and she doesn’t want to change her status.
Lauren is a member of a religious Manitoban community in Canada, she from the very beginning had feelings of her being different than the others. The girl was born with hypopituitarism which means the lack of formation of the pituitary gland, the gland responsible for the master controlling the hormones.
I was born with hypopituitarism, which means my pituitary gland is not formed properly, – she told the VICE, It doesn’t send the right hormonal messages to the other glands in the body, like the adrenaline gland or the ovaries. I was getting made fun of for being really flat chested, whereas everybody else was getting their boobs and everything at that point.
It means that she had to take supplements and medicine to cover for her need of hormones and other developments. She could recall her teasing experience, the way people used to mock her for her looks.
I got teased for being flat chested or having buck teeth. Kids would latch on to anything that was different. – said Lauren, A lot of that teasing has given me social anxiety to this day. My life started improving when I started looking like everyone else – she further added.
She describes her pregnancy as different, sometimes she urges for someone to be near her but she described such an urge to be totally unnatural. She then shared her awkward experience of being intimate with someone, physically, which she wouldn’t want to relive again in her life this happy being a virgin.
Lauren even tried going on dating websites, but she wasn’t successful.
Initially my endocrinologist said it won’t happen, that I’ll need to get an egg donor and spend tens of thousands of dollars on IVF, – said Lauren
Eventually, a fertility clinic helped Lauren. Then things started to rush towards getting positive,
I make jokes about it but basically this is me giving a middle finger to the people who told me I couldn’t do it because I’m not married yet. – Lauren described her state of mind.
