Nse Ikpe Etim Removes Womb ” I Can’t Have Children Anymore, My Uterus Was Removed To Save My Life

Nollywood Actress Nse Ikpe Etim Womb Removed After Adenomyosis Diagnosis

Popular Nollywood actress Nke Ikpe Etim can no longer bear children.

At a recent event,  the actress narrated how she was diagnosed with Adenomyosis, a condition that necessitated the removal of her uterus in order to live again.

Her uterus was removed 3 years ago.

Here is touching story:

“I was told I couldn’t have kids,” she said to the now sombre audience.

“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.”

Recalling the moment when the doctor told her she’d have to have remove her uterus to live a normal life, Nse said:

“Tears dropped and then my husband squeezed my hand. It was reassuring there was someone there and it was telling me that this is reality, my reality.”

She fell into a 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.”

She is however appreciative of her acting career.

I’m thankful for Nollywood,” she said.

“I push my pain through every single character.”

Nse revealed that prior to the hysterectomy, she badly wanted to have children.

“I wanted a set of twins,” she said boisterously.

“I wanted children. I wanted so badly I was brooding forever. I did IVF. I tried. I did everything our society wants every woman to do so that we can be accepted as women.”

She however described as “crazy” how some media reports speculated on her being pregnant.

Her sobering story got some members of audience shedding tears. And each time, it happened, she hugged and comforted them.

“If I registered a foundation, I would look into women like me who are questioning that they are no longer women because they can’t bear children, women who are marginalised because they suffer one way or the other,” she said.

“There’s so much that we go through that nobody sees but yet we smile. I’m not saying men don’t go through it. Men have to struggle because there’s so much pressure on the man.”

But going forward, Nse who disclosed she has embraced her pain is set to use her star power to affect lives.

“I think I want to affect the world positively,” she said

“Mentorship… I would want to do that. I want to do it because the creators of the internet failed us, that’s why I want to do it. When they let it out, they didn’t know what it was.”

    So bad woman, you should have used traditional medicine to solve this problem.
    Removing ur womb is a bad idea. It comes with a load of discomfort at old age

      Maybe you should go learn more and stop judging or providing undue and unwanted advice. Maybe you dont understand what she said when she mentioned she tried all you society wanted to make her a mother!

    My sister Nse, do not loose faith. You can still have children if you will follow my kind advice to you. A woman testified in our church, The Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Renewal Movement, that at LUTH her womb was removed to save her life. But she was invited to the church, by miracle God replaced her womb and today she Abundance, Dominion, Fabulous and two others I cannot remember their names. You should not write yourself off or allow anyone to do that. I personally invite you to come and your testimony will follow.

    I really want to commend your boldness and confidence to say all these. Honestly some would be pretentious of it and continue to live a fake life, however.. mentorship, good one and let me add “being more closer to God”. He knows what no man and even the doctors do not know. Hope might not finally be lost in conceiving and given birth. Faith in God does the supernatural. May the Almighty God be with you and prove His supremacy over scientific discoveries in your life for a positive result. Shalom!

    My sweet lovely actress,do you believe in God? Hope of having children is not lost you know. Have you consider surrogacy ? You can give it a trial. God will make you mother of nations.As it is your wish to be a mother,, God will grant your request in Jesus name. I wish you what you wish yourself my dear.
