Why I Removed My Womb – Actress Nse Ikpe Etim

Nse Ikpe Etim speaks on being diagnosed with Adenomyosis, a condition that has affected her ability to have children.

She disclosed this at her recent event  tagged ‘Conversation With Nse’ in Lagos.

“I was told I couldn’t have kids. And so, I had to remove my womb 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.
