It has been a long time coming and I hope it was worth the wait, but the time has come to tell the story of ‘The broken vagina’, that I briefly touched on in a previous post. Now, if for some reason you haven’t read ‘The EOH Pelvic Floor’, I strongly suggest you head over and read that first, as the same disclaimer applies to this article. Before the pitchforks come at me like the last time, I will make myself clear – if you have not brought a life into this world and ever envision doing the act that…

The news of youths in northern Nigeria providing an ultimatum and establishing a deadline for all Igbos in Northern Nigeria to vacate the region, came to me as a big shock and prompted this article. The past 2 years living and working in Nigeria, yet travelling the world, opened up my ability to brainstorm on some of the challenges that have plagued and continue to plague the growth of this great nation. From leadership, to education, to lost time that we will never get back, to segregation. The prior mentioned issues are massively of more importance but right now, we…

DOES EVERY MAN OR WOMAN HAVE HIS OR HER PRE-ORDAINED AND PREDESTINED SOULMATE Is there a pre-ordained man for every woman and vice versa? Answers No. God leads you according to His spirit and the man gets someone that’s like-minded like Him. The man gets His Help meet “suitable for him” while he is loving God and doing his purpose. We are very quick to jump to Adam and Eve. Read carefully!!! God did and created things and left Adam to make choices; God didn’t impose anything….follow me closely. While God made Eve out of Adam to be His suitable help…

Women have been putting up with the hormonal side-effects of contraceptives like the pill for decades. It’s time for men to do their bit Deborah Orr An experimental male contraceptive jab has proved just as effective as the pill is for women.

The pill’s other common side-effects include nausea, headaches, breast tenderness, anxiety, weight gain and, sometimes, decreased libido. However, suggesting that the pill isn’t an almost perfect form of birth control tends…
