Dear Auntie Nangy,
I am a girl of 12 and I would like you to give some information on being a lesbian.
Is it threatening to a person’s health? And is it embarrassing to be one?
No, angel, it is not threatening to a person’s health and it is not something to be embarrassed about and it is also not something that a 12-year-old girl should be too curious about as you might get some wrong information on a subject that you will know about in due time.

Dear Auntie Nangy,
I am 50 years old with six children and I want a baby boy now. I am married and my husband loves me a lot but I don’t have a baby with him.
There is a lot of risk involved in having a baby at your age and if you already had your menopause you will have to undergo assisted reproduction, which in essence means that you will have to have egg donations.
The risks involved with childbearing over the age of 50 include an increased incidence of diabetes, hypertension and miscarriage. In comparison to mothers under 30, mothers over 50 are at almost three times the risk of low birth rate and premature birth.
Speak to your doctor or gynaecologist as they will be best able to advise you.

THE Namibia Under-23 side has withdrawn from the 2011 All Africa Games to be hosted by Mozambique, due to the ‘scheduling’ of the qualifiers by the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
Namibia were due to play neighbours Angola on the weekend of 7-9 January, but the Namibia Football Association immediately withdrew the team from the Games. “We have to withdraw because we cannot have enough time and players to prepare for the game so early in the year” said Barry Rukoro, Secretary General of the NFA.
