Eradicating famale genital mutilation for better reproductive health
Mrs Zainab Shola in her late twenties, will strike you as a happily married woman at first meeting. As a teenager in secondary, she discovered that the flow of her monthly periods was not consistent and she usually felt itchy and uncomfortable. Medical examinations showed that the scar she had as a result of the circumcision she had as a child.
Shola later discovered that she was unable to engage in sexual intercourse because of the scar and no penis could penetrate her vagina which made her scared of getting into any relationship.
