Lauren, A 29-year-old virgin has found out she is pregnant with her first child after going against her doctor and religious family’s advice and finding a sperm donor. The mom to be, who is from a Manitoban community in Canada, is expecting the baby in June and feels the happy news will help her not have to deal with dating, something she doesn’t want to do.
The young woman says she’s happy by herself and intends to stay a virgin for the rest of her life.
She finds kissing to be “awkward.” Lauren also suffers from hypopituitarism which is a rare disorder that affects a person’s hormones and she has been struggling with the disorder since she was younger.
“I was born with hypopituitarism, which means my pituitary gland is not formed properly,” Lauren explained . It doesn’t send the right hormonal messages to the other glands in the body, like the adrenaline gland or the ovaries.
Although she has no plans to find someone in the future, she admitted to going on a couple of dates in the past but realized it’s not something she likes. She still wonders what it would be like to have sex with someone, though, and has been on dating websites until she started receiving shocking messages from men that left her disgusted.
“The hardest thing was probably getting pregnant,” she continued. “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. I felt really down.” Her doctor still referred her to a clinic and after waiting for a year, she happily found out she was pregnant.
Lauren said her being from a deeply religious family doesn’t have anything to do with how she got pregnant. She said it’s the opposite of a religious reason.
