Still on VVF,

Abeeda is correct. VVF is more caused by carelessness than age. There are cases of women getting during the third or fourth deliveries. When labor is elongated with no attention from trained birth attendant, anything can happen. life can be lost. Age facilitates because most first pregnancies meet inexperienced ladies. This becomes catastrophic where there is no trained hand to offer assistance.

We are aware of girls getting married at tender ages in the past in Hausaland, but we are also aaware that these are married to responsible husbands who nursing them to maturity before first sex. Today husbands are reckless, impatient.

A stitch in time will always save nine.

Thank you Danborno for bringing me back to kanoonline.

Assalamu Alaikum everyone,

I am back. I started this discussion under my name, Haladu. I abandoned this group for a long time. A brother, Danborno, sent me a personal mail urging me to return. I forgot my password, so i registered again as SpeakOut.

An update on the issue:

That lady finally had VVF. The husband divorced her within the week. Her parents took her back. She had a successful operation. She remarried. On March 1, 2008 i saw her pregnant again !!. I pray she delivers successfully.

I am impressed by the interest generated by the story. I am more inpressed by the initiative of Daborno for inviting me back to the forum. I hope we stay in the discussion.

Warm regards
