Nigerian actress Nse Ikpe-Etim has opened up about her life, making friends in the industry and why she revealed to the world that she underwent a hysterectomy after she was told she could not have kids.
In an interview last year, the talented woman said she was diagnosed with a condition known as Adenomyosis. This condition meant she could not have kids. She explained that she decided to have a hysterectomy to remove her womb.
According to her, she made the decision to make herself feel alive again and stop going through what she was going through. She also wants people to know that it does not matter if you cannot bear children.
In a recent interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Rubbing Minds, the actress explained that her husband tried to reach out to her after she shared an article on her Instagram page. She noted that he had seen it on LinkedIn.
Ikpe-Etim explained that her husband, who is not on social media had to create an Instagram account to talk to her because he could not reach her and she blocked him.
According to the actress, her husband was supportive after the news became public. She said he was happy that she was healing from the pain.
The actress also addressed how she felt when trolls came after her for revealing that she removed her womb. She said she was happy that she took control of her life because she was not constantly drained by emotion.
