“I had gone for a pregnancy test to confirm what becomes the most obvious conclusion for a sexually active young woman who misses her monthly flow. I was in the company of Karen. And when the test result was ready, I wasn’t strong enough to open it. She did and declared the verdict. ‘Charlie, it dey there!’, she exclaimed.
“On an ordinary day, I would have laughed out loud and that would trigger a string of jolly conversations and jokes. But this was no laughing matter. It was a grim piece of information that was capable of turning my world upside down.
“I wasn’t the only one responsible for the situation, so I called the man whose potent seed had germinated in me. His name is Michael Owusu Addo, a renowned Ghanaian musician who is better known as Sarkodie”
In her book, Yvonne recounts her desperate attempts to terminate the pregnancy, including consuming concoctions suggested by a colleague.
Unfortunately, these attempts proved futile as subsequent tests confirmed her pregnancy remained intact.
Eventually, Yvonne achieved her objective and terminated the pregnancy, but she deeply regrets this decision and considers it one of the most painful mistakes of her life.
She expresses remorse, stating that if she could rewind the clock of life to her younger self, she would have chosen to keep the pregnancy.
