A 58-year-old Nigerian woman identified as Dorcas Osiebo has allegedly welcomed a beautiful baby boy on Friday, December 13, years after reaching menopause. The woman was said to have reached menopause in 2006.
According to the Facebook user identified as Wisdom Nwedene, the woman had stopped menstruating 13 years ago without a trace of pregnancy but she never gave up on trying to have a child.
The woman and her 64-year-old husband, Christopher Oseibo, welcomed their baby boy after 35 years of marriage.
Nwedene, who shared the story on Facebook, said the woman had revealed in an interview with Igbere TV that she was confused and excited when she was told by a nurse that she was with child.
He said that the woman had revealed that she entered menopause after she went to a hospital and she was told that she had an obstruction after a scan was done. She said she had an operation and after getting home she realised that she had stopped menstruating.
She said: "We have gone to many places and hospitals that we cannot even number them all. In 2006, my husband took me for scanning at a hospital in Jos and obstruction was discovered (not fibroid).
An operation was carried out at the hospital and I came back home but no solution, rather, since the operation was carried out, I didn’t see my period again."
