I Don’t Regret Removing My Womb – Nse Ikpe

Star actress, Nse Ikpe-Etim has made more revelations on why she removed her womb.

She said; “My doctors discovered that I have no uterus and can medically not become pregnant. Three years ago, I was diagnosed with Adenomyosis, a condition whereby the inner lining of the uterus breaks through the muscle wall of the uterus.”

“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.”

“As regards God giving me a new womb, why hasn’t God replaced my missing tooth? I have been asking him for it. The truth is that I believe that if in religion we use our sense, we would understand it. You see this thing called miracle, it is a miracle I am alive and that is all I stand for”.

“If you broke your tooth today, would you carry on with life? It is a part of the body. That is what it is. So I had a condition, I had to face my fears. I had an amazing partner who thought we have to chose life and then I went ahead and got treatment for it.”

“When things happen in life, you get on with it. We seem to always want to put thing on a scale and weigh it and say this is so heavy, my heart can’t take it. Of course your heart can. We are built to be resilient but we chose when to be weak and when to be strong. It is a choice to be happy in this situation.”

“Someone asked me if I had any regrets in an interview years ago and I answered I wished I had kids and I was like I hope to have twins. Actually right now, no I don’t have any regrets.”

“I have accepted everything that I have come across in life and eveything has been a learning curve. It’s either to make me a better or make me achieve greater heights. I am happy with where I am at”.
