“I didn’t see my period for four years” — Ex Big Brother Naija housemate, Uriel opens up on how she may never have children.

Uriel Oputa, an evicted BBNaija All Stars housemate, speaks up about a four-year-long condition that may prevent her from having children.

In a recent interview with media personality Hero Daniels, Uriel revealed some personal truths about her life.

The 35-year-old singer opened up about her struggle with Amenorrhea, a medical condition characterized by the absence of menstruation from puberty to menopause.

Uriel regarded this time as the most difficult of her life, emphasizing that physicians had told her that having a child might not be feasible.

In her words,

“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.”
