Breaking: I don’t have a womb Nse Ikpe-Etim Nollywood actress disclose
Popular Nollywood actress Nse Ikpe-Etim reveal that she has no womb which means she can’t give birth
Nse made this known at an event in Lekki, Lagos ahead of the release of a new movie, titled “conversation with Nse“, where she disclosed it to her fans, the Nation reported.
Nse revealed that she was diagnosed with Adenomyosis about three years ago. The sickness causes the inner lining of the uterus to break through the wall of the uterus.
In her words “I was told I could not have kids, so I had to have a hysterectomy (removal of uterus) to make me have a life again to stop going through what I was going through. And I’m literally telling women and men, it doesn’t really matter if you cannot have children, what really matters is what you want to do for the world and the universe”.
Nse recalled what the doctor had told her to remove her womb to live a normal life.
“Tears dropped and my husband squeezed my hand, it was reassuring that there was someone there and it was telling me it is reality, my reality”.
“I didn’t think there was any point anymore because my society taught me that I have to be a mother to be appreciated and anytime I went online, I would have one troll or two “you never born?”
Concluding her statement “But am thankful that that didn’t break me, I’m thankful for Nollywood”, she said.
