Nollywood actress, Nse Ikpe-Etim has disclosed the specific reason why she won’t have a child.

The talented actress said she won’t be able to have a child because she has removed her womb, after a diagnosis revealed that she has Adenomyosis, a medical condition whereby the inner lining of the uterus breaks through the muscle wall of the uterus, three years ago.

While speaking as a guest at an event tagged: “Conversation With Nse” in Lagos, the award winning actress who won the Best Actress in a Drama award at the 2014 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards for playing “Nse” in Journey to Self narrated her health condition; 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 literally 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.”

Nse Ikpe-Etim came into limelight in 2008 for her role in ‘Reloaded’. She was also nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her role in ‘Reloaded’ and ‘Mr and Mrs’ at the 5th and 8th Africa Movie Academy Awards respectively.
