ITV Corrie fans have a theory as Faye receives devastating news she can't have any more children at 20

Faye Windass was knocked sideways by devastating news as she went to see her GP on Coronation Street. Faye had an appointment with Dr Susan Gaddass over concerns about her irregular periods which she had put down to stress.

Faye, 20, was advised to go to her GP after she recently feared she'd suffered a miscarriage and a hospital scan discovered she had never been pregnant. In the medical centre Dr Gaddas broke the news to Faye that she’s suffering from early menopause and would never be able to have any more children unless it was with a donor.

Dr Gaddas told her that she had premature ovarian failure, which means the ovaries can no longer produce eggs. A devastated Faye was told the ovaries can't be re-started once they've stopped producing, but she could be treated with HRT (Hormone replacement therapy).


"It's sometimes called early menopause although that's a term we don't like to use," said Dr Gaddass. And Faye pleaded: "I can't have the menopause. I'm only 20."

Dr Gaddass gently explained: "It can sometimes affect the young. It's rare." And she told Faye: "You can't have kids using your own eggs but can be a surrogate with an IVF donor."

Faye breaks the news to Craig (ITV)

Coronation Street fans are aware that Faye was just 12 when she found out that she was pregnant with Jackson Hodge, who was a year above her at Weatherfield High School, and she gave birth to a daughter Miley in 2015.

The schoolgirl decided to hand the baby over to Jackson and his parents who were moving to Canada. In 2017 she was very briefly reunited with her daughter when she bumped into Jackson while waiting for a hospital appointment at Weatherfield General.

Faye, whose partner is PC Caig Tinker, was filled with emotion as she told Dr Gaddass: "But I want to have a family. I want to be a mum, a proper mum. I had a baby and I gave her away because I wasn't ready. I thought I would have more time." And she added: "Me and Craig we've spoke about being parents one day."

Later she revealed the life-changing news to her dad Tim and confessed that she felt she was being 'punished' for giving up Miley. "I'm being punished," she told Tim. "Maybe it's like karma. the universe saying I don't deserve to have another baby because I gave my first one up."

But Tim told her: "It's not fair and it's certainly not your fault." Corrie now think that Faye could track down Miley and they took to Twitter with their theory.

@conormckenna101 tweeted: "Faye will want to get into touch with Miley I reckon." @RKTovey predicted: "Faye going after custody of Miley."

@yorit1 asked: "I wonder if they will reintroduce Miley." And @WiniBoansi said: "Ooooooo This will make Faye look for her child. I guess that’s where this storyline is heading."
