BREAKING NEWS: Female inmate not pregnant

A highly-placed source at Victoria Hospital has confirmed that female prisoner Donalyn Lesmond, who has been hospitalised for the past two days, is suffering from endometrial hyperplasia – a condition unrelated to pregnancy complications.

This news comes as rumours spread that Lesmond, who is on remand at Bordelais Correctional Facility for killing her husband, a police officer, is pregnant and was hospitalised from complications related to a miscarriage.

The source said this is far from the truth, adding that Donalyn was initially brought to the Emergency Room about two days ago but has since been admitted on the ward.

Rumours that Donalyn was pregnant and had a miscarriage was also discussed on several popular radio talk shows with callers questioning the integrity of the prison officials. Female inmates are segregated from male inmates.

“Endometrial hyperplasia is the abnormal thickening of the lining of the uterus due to an increase in the number of endometrial glands. This disorder most often affects young women who are just beginning to menstruate and older women approaching menopause. In most cases endometrial hyperplasia is not a serious health risk,” the source explained, citing several sources on the Web.

“An overproduction of estrogen causes endometrial hyperplasia in young women. Unopposed estrogen replacement therapy (taking estrogen without progesterone) in postmenopausal women is associated with a higher incidence of endometrial hyperplasia. Young women who have just begun to menstruate, and women who have (or who have had) irregular menstrual cycles, are at greater risk for endometrial hyperplasia.

Symptoms of endometrial hyperplasia: Vaginal bleeding between menstrual periods or after menopause, heavy menstrual bleeding, periods that last longer than usual, pain during sexual intercourse, amenorrhea (absence of menstrual periods), and anovulatory periods (menstrual cycles without ovulation).

Donalyn is accused of shooting police officer Lucas Lesmond on Sept. 2, 2012 at about 5 a.m.

Lucas was shot in the face with his occupational firearm at the couple’s La Toc, Castries apartment.

Neighbours told reporters after the incident that they had witnessed fights and quarrels between the couple.

Donalyn has been on remand ever since. She recently participated in a calypso competition at the prison – an event criticised by relatives of Lucas.

  1. Please be informed Lucian public that the gynecological/obstetrical ward is not only for pregnant women. Lucian seem to believe that once you go there it is because you are pregnant. Lucians stop being ignorant. Women who have done gynecological/obstetrical procedures are housed there.

  2. To correct everyone, female inmates are segregated from the male inmates. They do not even attend church service together. So St. Luciana do not believe everything you read. What this story is saying is that the inmate had to have gotten pregnant while in prison. Than is not possible.

  3. Cheeky Peeks you are so correct, I think she should take the Victoria hospital to task. Patient confidentially is a must. If that's the case all HIV patients in the prisons or in St. Lucia will be exposed soon. Irrespective of what she is on remand for she still has some level of rights to her self, she has not been convicted. I am not juding her, I don't know her, I think she should have walked away, the bible clearly states "Thou Shall Not Kill" How ever she can repent and surrender her life to god and accept him as he r lord and savior and can get to heven before you or myself if she remains faithful to his teachings and his word.

  4. Don't inmates have rights too? Why am I getting the feeling that patient - doctor confidentiality is being breached. If there is a gynocological problem being experienced by this inmate, the details should not be released by any source.

  5. I have learnt that if you're playing or doing something to somebody that they don't like and they tell you to stop it once they tell you stop it twice you should not give them cause to say it three times.

  8. I didn't realise that prisoners no longer had privacy or confidentiality relating to their medical conditions once they were in prison.

  9. Some of us st.Lucians like too much gossip and slander. I have the same health condition when they lived near my home before moving to la toc
    The beatings was happening the neighbors use to hear nobody did anything his family didn't take steps. His fellow colleagues some of them knew they did nothing because he was a police officer was it justified what he was doing? Mr francois u need to put a stop to your officers who abuse their spouses and partners. What she did wasn't right she will never be at ease but stop the labelling. Empty barrels always make the most noise. SPEAK sense and stop talking bull

  11. I am sorry for the Police's family, but she probably did it in self defence. She probably is innocent. People seen them fighting, He probably beat her one time too many.
