Why I May Never Bear Children – BBNaija Uriel

Amenorrhea is a medical term for the absence of menstruation during the reproductive years between puberty and menopause.

Uriel, 35, said she battled with the health issue for four years.

In an interview with media personality Hero Daniels, the singer described the period as the lowest point of her life, saying that doctors told her that she might never be able to birth a child.

She said: “Before I decided to embark on a health journey, I had health challenges. One of them was that I didn’t see my period for four years. And I remember going to the doctors in the UK, and they told me that there was a high possibility that I would never be able to have children. That time, my niece was two years old and I remember leaving the office thinking, ‘Oh! I will never be able to have a child.’

“I went into a state of depression. I was so depressed that I couldn’t watch kids on TV. I hated going past schools or parks because I would be reminded constantly that I might not be able to be a mother.

“So, it reached a point where I said, ‘Okay, if I can’t be a mother, I would have my niece as mine.’ And that is why, till today, my niece and I are very close because she looks at me as a second mother.”
