Jean Ball is 23, and has been living with her current boyfriend Jimmy Crickett for 14 months. She was not concerned about getting pregnant when they started to live together and they have not used contraception.
She has had several long relationships in the past with other men, and occasional incidents of casual sex. Before meeting her current partner, she took the Pill, as she didn't trust her partners enough to rely on them for contraception.
Over the past four years, she has had several episodes of lower abdominal pain, and she was admitted to hospital during the last episode, as the pain was so severe. Now, she is getting more concerned about this and wants a baby.
