Etinosa Idemudia is opening up about a common but little-discussed condition that she shares with thousands of other women: polycystic ovary syndrome — and how she managed to defeat it.
The Nollywood actress, 33, who welcomed a baby girl days ago, revealed that she battled with the condition for seven years in a thank you note on Thursday which she shared on Instagram alongside a photo of her rocking her baby bump.
Idemudia said PCOS, a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age, is not barrenness and also shared how she defeated it and went on to welcome her child.
She wrote: “I am ending the year on a high note 🎉 Full of Thanksgiving. Thanks to my family and friends Thanks to all my employers- Filmmakers and Businesses that trusted me with their projects. Thanks to my fans and viewers. Special thanks to the management and staff of The Ark Clinic. And above all, thanks to God Almighty. This year l defeated PCOS. This year I carried my own child 🤱🏽
“To every woman TTC, please do not give up. Do not let anyone exploit you by selling all sorts of medications to you, be careful. Please try to be happy and trust this God. If anyone is mocking you, try to avoid and protect your space. The God that did it for me will rise up for you in due season. We shall all see the new year and celebration will be our portion. Amen🙏🏾 #HappyNewYear #WeMadeIt #EtinosaIdemudia,” the comedienne added.
In another post, she shared the photo of the drug she was administered and more advice with her fans, writing, “Everyone is facing one battle or the other let’s encourage each other. This is very difficult for me to share but I can’t ignore the messages. One particularly made me emotional. You suffer to get pregnant then miscarriage raises its ugly head!! I have been there. Not pretty one bit but today I stand with you and we will all testify one after the other. Amen.”
