Despite using contraceptive pills and condoms “religiously,” a mother of four became pregnant with three of her kids.
The 29-year-old “super-fertile” Becky Gower probably never planned a huge family. However, five years ago, when she got pregnant with her first son, Dylan, Becky and Ed had only been together for three months. Even though Becky was using pills and condoms at that time, the couple was overwhelmed with the surprise. After a year, they decided to bring Dylan’s brother Archie in this world.
After the birth of Archie, the couple thought that their family was complete and Becky decided to return on pills because contraceptive is safe for the breastfeeding moms. Thereafter, the social media manager took the mini pill every night, as recommended by the doctor. The mother says that she consumed it precisely at the same time each night. But, within a few weeks, she became pregnant again with her third son, Finn, currently 2.
Anticipating the fact, that pills weren’t working for them, Becky’s husband Ed, turned to condoms. But, despite using condoms and morning-after pills, she was pregnant again, giving birth to their one year-old-daughter Cora.
Even though the Gower family is happy with their six members, they have made up their mind, that enough is enough.
Becky said, “We’re going to look into Ed have a vasectomy soon — we love our children and love the fact that we didn’t plan our life, but I think that four babies is definitely enough.”
She explained, “I’ve tried everything now but nothing seems to work — my body must just reject the hormones. We just use condoms at the minute because I don’t feel comfortable putting more hormones into my body after having the babies.”
The couple is now nervous about having sex, worrying about the fact that the condom might split anytime, and they might end up with the fifth baby!
