Why I do not have any child and why I may never have one. Nollywood actress, Nse Ikpe-Etim, in an emotional interview.

The multiple award-winning actress revealed at an event called “Conversation With Nse” in Lagos. She clearly stated that she won’t be able to have kids of her own because she has removed her womb.

The actress said she was diagnosed with Adenomyosis three years ago. It is a medical condition whereby the inner lining of the uterus breaks through the muscle wall of the uterus.

She said,

I was told I couldn’t have kids. And so, I had to have a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) to make me have a life again and to stop going through what I was going through. And I’m literarily telling women and men, it really doesn’t matter if you can’t bear children. What really matters is what you would do for the world, for the universe.”

“When I was first told by the doctor that I would have to remove my womb to live a normal life, tears dropped and then my husband squeezed my hand. .

“It was reassuring that there was someone there and it was telling me that this is reality, my reality. The ordeal made me fall into depression.

“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 every time I went online, I would have one troll or two say ‘you never born? But I’m thankful that that didn’t break me.”
