“Time is ticking, at my age my mum had 5 kids” – Big Brother Naija’s Uriel Oputa emotional as she freezes her eggs

Uriel Oputa, a popular reality star, freezes her eggs as she laments the fact that time is running out on her while she waits for the perfect man.

In a poignant video posted on her Instagram page, the BBNaija star attended her reproductive clinic to freeze her eggs and save them for future usage.

According to the UK’s Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority [HFEA], egg freezing is a method of maintaining a woman’s fertility so that she might try to have a baby in the future. It entails gathering a woman’s eggs, freezing them, and then defrosting them later for use in fertility treatment.

According to the 35-year-old chef, it was a necessary step because a woman’s eggs diminish beyond a certain age, limiting chances of having a baby.

“I’m creating awareness!!! Apparently by 30 the Quality of our eggs Reduce🥹 Ladies would you consider Freezing your Eggs? Until Mr Right comes? Creating awareness and educating myself and others. We walk on this health journey together.” Uriel Oputa captioned the video.

In the video, she stated in part, “It’s a hard pill to swallow; at this age I am now, my mother had five children. Time is ticking for me and I am aware, so I decided to weigh my options. If that perfect man doesn’t come now, I need to secure myself and nurture my seeds.”
