Meanwhile in another news…

CorrectNG reported that Uriel Oputa recounted her struggle with amenorrhea that lasted for four years. The gym enthusiast said doctors in the United Kingdom told her that she may never be able to have a child, and the health challenge was “the lowest point” of her life.

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

Uriel, who was speaking with media personality Hero Daniels, revealed that she battled with depression as a result of the diagnosis and she had a problem watching kids on TV.

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 may 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, we [my niece and I] are very close because she looks at me as a second mother.”
