"I have been suffering menstrual pains since age 13' - Nike Oshinowo opens up about her battle with Endometriosis

Endometriosis is painful disorder in which the tissue that lines the uterus grows outside of the uterus and on other organs. Endometriosis can cause pain, internal scar tissue and fertility problems and former beauty queen Nike Oshinowo has been battling with it for over 33 years. Nike explains:
"I have lived with Endometriosis since the age of 13. I went to boarding school in England  when I was 7. I went to prep school. It was during the first few days in secondary school that I began my periods. They called the ambulance and I was hospitalized for 10 days because the pain wouldn't stop. The pain was so intense I passed out. I thought I was going to die.
Living with Endometriosis is a challenge. When you see your doctor, your doctor tries to treat the symptoms and assumes the pain revolves around your menstrual circle. But this is not so. The pain affects every single aspect of your life. I have never had an examination without my period. There are so many things I have never done without my period. When I am happy, my period comes. When I'm depressed, my period is there. I learned to just cope with it. 
She explains more about the disease. See it after the cut...



Until I turned 40, Nigerians didn't know I suffered from Endometriosis. I granted an interview then and people understood why I never drank alcohol and why I was into healthy living. At last, it was understood why if I come to your party, by 8pm I had to go home to take my pain killers because when you live with Endometriosis, you live with pain. I have a library in my home about pain.

I talk about this pain now so that mothers, when their young daughters are starting their period for the first time and it is traumatic, they should go to the hospital and have it checked out.

Mine was left so late in life in spite of the fact that I grew up in England. I have had so many surgeries I have lost count. I remember when Michael Jackson died and they talked about a drug he had been taking. I exclaimed oh yes I have taken that drug. You try everything to make the pain go away, so all I know is that I don't want a child of mine to suffer Endometriosis. The only way to make sure of that is to educate as many as I can.

One ignorant doctor told me once to try to have a baby, because once you have a baby the pain would go away. I thought to myself if I had a gun, I would have shot that doctor and I would have been locked and there would have been no one to give me pain killers. The reason for that relief is that when you are pregnant, you don't have periods and a long gap of not menstruating actually abates the symptoms of Endometriosis.

Women with Endometriosis do not want to have sex because it is painful. So you do not want to have intercourse once and it is painful, you will not want to go there. It is not something you are going to look forward to. You are either bleeding or you do not want. So, on the average, my friend's period is 5 days, mine, if I'm lucky lasts 7-10 days and if I'm super duper lucky, lasts less than 7 days. If you look at a girl's circle, 26-27 days, remove the days she's been menstruating and remove the days she doesn't want, when she had premenstrual tension. When every part of you is sore, on those days you are not going to want and even on the remaining 5 or so days that you are OK, you are not going to want to have intercourse it is going to be painful. You just don't want to, so you cannot have a proper relationship with men.

Endometriosis is a disease. You are not supposed to have endometrial tissue in your abdomen. Surgery removes it. But the moment you menstruate, the pain comes back. My understanding is that I have a uterus, every woman does. Something lines it. Just like when you want to bake, you line your pan with baking paper. That baking paper or lining is the endometrial tissues. But mine isn't just confined to my uterus. It's in my fallopian tube, it's every where. Everywhere this tissue is, when you menstruate, that tissue will be doing the same thing. and you feel pain everywhere. Anywhere that tissue is, it behaves as if it is the uterus. The purpose of menstruating is to shed the lining and come out. I know someone who has endometrial tissue in her gut. Even in the brain. When you menstruate, it also menstruates and you feel pain there.

I am almost 47 and I am looking forward to menopause. People like us look forward to it because it give us a breather. I have finally learned how to cope with the pain, how to live with it and how to manage it. It takes up a huge amount of my time and life...

It's a very very long interview, but I will stop here. I'm dizzy from typing...:-)

Madam Nike, i too suffered menstrual pain since i was same 13, then once my period comes, i start rolling on the flooor clutching my stomach, i get cranky and angry, i fell restless and sick. then i would take lipton without milk or sugar, hard core lipton, it would help but i would still dread my next period.
...then...
i grew up, got married, had my first kid and like a miracle, when my menstruation resumed, no pain. childbirth took it all away.

Bullying; now a lot you readers love bullying people and most especially me. This type of bullying is called 'cyber bullying'. For illiterates here; bullying is the act of using force or intimidating someone to get your view(s) across.

Now I'm sure some people are asking themselves why I'm bringing this up - well I'm doing this to educate people who think this is an act of being a god by using force so as to get respected.

Now there are three basic types of bullying which are: emotional, physical and verba abuse.
You can destroy someone through bullying; that person (if he/she can't stand it any longer or the victim has a weak heart) might end up committing suicide or he/she can even commit multiple murders.

Calling someone names, ridiculing someone in school on the internet can lead to high depression. You don't go about calling people gay when they are not or insulting the person's heritage. The victim can be depressed for years or even lose it and harm their attackers physically.

Take for instance; Eric Harris & Dylan Klebold (subject to school bullying). For those of you who don't know them, please google.

I'm not in any way pleading for you guys to stop insulting or bullying me on the internet (no, no, no). I'm only educating people and trying to save a life out there. Bullying won't make you a macho-man or woman. It'd only reduce you to nothing bigger than an ant.

These names I'm about listing killed themselves cause of bullying. Some people can't just stand this act especially when people accuse them wrongly about their sexuality. Here are their names; please feel free to google:

Ryan Halligen,
Phoebe Prince, Dawn-Marie Wesley,
Kelly Yeomans, Jessica Haffer,
Hamed Nastoh and April Himes.

Save a life. I'm stronger than these names here so nothing can happen to me or my confidence. I love it when you even take your time to analyze me with insultive words.

Be educated; ignorance kills!

This is the most candid thing I have heard this woman say!

I lived in San Francisco for 14 yrs and took my wife to Stanford Hosp (they offer the best fertility treatment in the world) for several years.

Endometriosis is a spoiler for women that have them. Laser is a touted cure but unfortunately, not for all women. The thing simply grows back.

It's like their innards are covered by the layer that lines the womb (imagine a face fully covered with hair!).

When they menstruate, anywhere the lining is becomes involved and twitches/spasms, causing a high degree of pain.

Sorry oh, Madam Lola and all other sufferers of this abnormality.

dont understand, is she trying too say she is single now with no kids at the age of 47 or something??? bcox she sounds like someone who is still feeling that pains which means she's got no kids...May God See You True,but i advice you get pregnant too stop that pain bcox you've suffered from that pain enough....

Anonymous said...

Aunty Nike, I think u have a thing for the limelight, anything to get a little attention. We are not all illiterates you know? And some of us are doctors, some of us suffer this same illness. It's painful yes, but it shouldnt stop u from having kids or intercourse, and with the number of men you've been with, are we rili to believe you don't have a healthy sex life? Pls endometriosis is not synonymous with constant severe pain. U should have had kids aunty, at least they would have been one constant source of joy and love in between the men and the scandals.

OMG! New found respect for this Lady. I get cramps sometimes,makes me wish I was a guy. Can't imagine what she goes thru.

Anonymous said...

I applaud her for discussing this issue that affects for many- especially in our society where people like to hide things. However, I think it is ignorant of her to say that Endometriosis keeps suffererer from having normal relationships and normal lives. The disease affects many women in different ways and I know of people have it, who have gone on to have normal lives, normal sexual relationships and children. It is not a death sentence. Her statements while seeming to shed light on the disease, might instead backfire and cause a stigamtization of its sufferers, just based on the way it is presented.

Dear Billie Jean, why do I have a feeling you are going through some crises cos that's the only explanation of your lame comments. Yea I couldn't help but notice. This lady, whoever she is has obviously been through a lot, the least you could have done was to throw in a sympathetic comment instead of this lame reference to her age. Please loosen up Nigerians! I'm beginning to feel you guys are filled with hate over there.

I'm really sorry to hear Nike! It can't be an easy condition to live with. However, let's be candid Nike, this condition hasn't prevented you from having relationships with high-society and wealthy men (nothing wrong with that provided you're not hurting anyone) but ALSO breaking marital homes e.g Dr.Soleye's marriage to Dr.Funmi Soleye. You've had numerous relationships and I imagine you must be sleeping with them otherwise how have you been able to acquire ALL that wealth you possess? Hmmm. This condition might have prevented some women from having a healthy sex life and relationships with men but clearly this does not apply to you!


P.s- I think you're extremely beautiful!!

during my teens i suffered period pain.i used to vomit a lot.as soon as i have children,the pain disappeared.now i'm 39,i'm starting having pain again during my period.i don't know why.but less pain

Anonymous said...

In other words that's why she didn't have a child of her own. I remember an interview way back in d papers when she talked about this and she said and I quote "i feel so much pain during my period what would child birth feel like?" So its also true that Atiku took her from behind...hmmm...hmmm...hmmm. Even with all this pain you still use am snatch person husband,abeg go rest jor.

na so. endometriosis na today? people have been suffering from painful periods and endometriosis since the beginning of time, and they go on to have kids. even if she was interested in kids, why not adopt? she's going to 50. abeg enjoy ur life oh, because if you have a child or adopt, you will not care for them, so it's better you don't even become a mother. useless woman.

Endometriosis is associated with infertility.

mimi said...

i was diagonsed 4yrs ago. The pains can be so humiliating. Every exam was accompained with horrible pains. Goin out nd flexin durin a period or ovulation is not even an option. Some days i dont even go to work as i wont even be able to stand straight. It's really not a gud thin to experience. The pain killers prescribed helps a little to relieve it. It can cause infertility in some women, so some pple do ve to live wit it till menopause comes. Yes, it can make sex painful on some occassions. Pple can be so ignorant, thinkin it's cos one's a virgin it happens.

I can relate to what Nike is saying, I guess some women are lucky and some unlucky.
I suffered from endometriosis from a young age and at 28yrs had a laproscopic keyhole surgery in England, it was the best thing ever! And now I'm pain free.
Wish you well Nike.

Bullocks. For someone who cannot have a proper relationship with men your score is very high o. Also having children actually relieves the pain to almost nothing, so leave the doctor alone. He knows what he's saying. I am speaking fron first hand experience.

Anonymous said...

A lot of women suffer in silence and people are very quick to judge when a woman doesn't get pregnant after she has settled down. The pain she is trying to describe is actually almost indescribable because it stays with you no matter what you do. Its more intense everytime you jump, hit a bump or pothole on the road, laugh too hard, have hiccups etc(the list is endless). The women who suffer from this are just like you, a lot have better/healthier lifestyles and they didn't 'do' anything to deserve it.

Although she was granted an interview a couple of years back n she narrated d same endo story, I still ve d mag, cus reading it, was painful to me as well.
Anyways, I wud advise you to adopt a child, whether male or female, at least u nid a human company, nobody is an Islander. Unless u desire to live alone without human fellowship. That's if u cud deduce what I mean here.
I didn't mean any insult to U o. Na simple advise I give o.

What pain is much more greater than wen a woman sees another (strange) woman packed into her matrimonial home wit her hubby ? Tell me a pain that's lesser than dat, then I will tell u d full meaning of endometrial tissue.
You assisted in pushing another woman out of her matrimonial home, which u later occupied wit her hubby, until nemesis caught up wit u. now u ar here lecturing *mothers* n d entire world what endometriosis is all about. *longest hisssssss*

I sympathise with you Aunty Nike, I just have a regular period pain and I'm not the best person to be around. Pls don't be upset about doctor's suggestion that having a baby would stop your agony. I know for a fact that it's possible your pain would stop when you start having kids. My sister in-law also suffered it bad, every month she takes injection and get's drunk , she is now married with two beautiful kids, and she has never had that traumatic pain again.

This is not just a serious problem but a shameful one, no one truly understands the pain the individual involved goes through. I have had this same problem and every scan I went for made me cry. The thought that you might not have kids like every other woman is so painful, the main problem is if you tell your boyfriend or fiance will he understand or just walk out.

I have prayed seriously and I am trusting the Almighty God for my healing. He is my ready help in the time of trouble.

Nike you are so strong to come out and educate people about this silent disease that a lot of people do not know exist.I will advise you to trust God and commit it to him. He can heal you of this disease even before menopause.
