Tania Omotayo, a well-known model, actor, event host, and entrepreneur from Nigeria who was born on June 14, 1992, has talked openly about her battle with “endometriosis.”
Endometriosis is a disorder that develops when endometrial tissue appears outside the uterus and causes pelvic pain, particularly during menstruation.
Tania Omotayo described how she was labelled a “attention seeker” because of the aches she had in a recent interview with Chude Jideonwo.
Tania Omotayo revealed that her endometriosis battle caused her to have heavy periods because she would bleed for three out of every four weeks on a monthly basis. Watch the video and caption below:
“Have you watched Africa Magic movies when somebody dies and they’re rolling on the floor? That was me in the hospital. Yeah, with white doctors looking at me like I was crazy. I was screaming, I was rolling, because I knew deep down, in the last 3 years, maybe 10years before that. When I tell you I’ve been to every doctor, every hospital worldwide, in every continent.
My dad and I went to Austria. They told him it was in my head and I was looking for attention that there was absolutely nothing wrong with me.
I was in pain. I had really heavy periods. I would bleed for like 3weeks to 4weeks. I was in so much pain, I had to go to the hospital to get an injection for pain or sleep.
I was constantly admitted in the hospital and the doctor actually told my dad to my face, in front of me, not like he said it behind my back, “She’s just a young girl looking for attention, there’s nothing medically wrong with her”.
