Actress Nze Ikpe-Etim Reveals Why She Had To Remove Her Womb

Talented Nigerian actress; Nze Ikpe-Etim, known for her roles in Mr& Mrs and Phone Swap has revealed why she had to remove her womb in a recent event tagged ‘Conversation with NSE’ which was held recently at Lekki.

Speaking in the conversation where she mentioned she was diagnosed of Adenomyosis, 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.” 

“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. 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. I’m thankful for Nollywood.”
