Nigerian entrepreneur and fashionista Toyin Lawani has shared her bitter ordeal of how she battled with fibroids and how she has decided to remove her womb.
In a lengthy write up on her Instagram page, she narrated how she found out she had fibroids at age 23 while she was still pregnant with her first child. She stated that she went through hell as she was bleeding continuously for 9 months when she was still pregnant.
According to Toyin, she had no other choice than to book an appointment at the hospital to remove her womb as she had undergone 5 surgeries over the years in Nigeria, UK, Dubai, and the USA but to no avail. She disclosed that after successful surgery, she will share a secret with everyone.
