I Felt Inadequate Knowing I Couldn’t Have Children – Actress Nse Ikpe-Etim

The actress had revealed that she had to undergo a hysterectomy, which is the removal of the uterus after she was diagnosed with adenomyosis.

While chatting with Chude Jideonwo, the actress said, “Finding out I couldn’t have children didn’t make me feel ashamed. I felt inadequate. I felt inadequate as a woman but not ashamed, which was because of how I was brought up.

She further mentioned that adoption was on the table for her and her partner, Clifford.
