BEAUTY Queen, Nike Oshinowo, has been going through a nightmare ever since she was 13. She has been suffering endometriosis, a condition in which tissue that should line the womb is located in other parts of the body like the fallopian tubes or ovaries.
“Living with endometriosis is a big challenge,” a close pal revealed to Loud whispers, “when you live with endometriosis, despite pain killers you live in pain; it’s nothing short of a nightmare and that is what Nike has been experiencing ever since she was 13.
“All her life she has lived with the pain and it’s debilitating. Despite all the smiles and cheer around her, she has been suffering tremendously due to the condition.
Nike who grew up in England suffered so much because her mum was ignorant but now she is determined to create awareness about the condition and has been giving talks about it and how to manage it.
“Imagine going through 17 surgical procedures just to correct the condition, that is what Nike Oshinowo has been through,” the source added.
Among others, Endometriosis has been fingered as a significant factor in unexplained female infertility.
