“I was told I couldn’t have kids..Tears dropped and then my husband squeezed my hand. It was reassuring there was someone there” ; Nollywood Actress Nse Ikpe Etim Recounts On Mothers’ Day How She Was Trolled By The World Because She Didn’t Yet Have A Child

by Beatrice Inim

Nollywood Actress Nse Ikpe Etim recounts how she struggles with Adenomyosis,  a condition of the Uterus,  and how she got back lash and a lot of trolling from people who were monitoring her womb,  to find out if she was pregnant or not.

She had an interview with BBC pidgin and recounted it all..

According to her,  “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 a 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.”
