Bongo actress Wema Sepetu has opened up about her well-known difficulties with conceiving.
The former beauty queen said she suffers from a disease that is preventing her from getting pregnant.
“Let me be open today so that people can know this, I am suffering from a disease which causes my eggs (ovaries) to rapture and thus cannot be fertilized,” said Wema, who couldn’t recall the name of the disease.
According to Wema, she decided to speak up because the diseases was the reason she travelled to India for specialized treatment, refuting claims that she went to have her butt fixed.
Tanzanian fertility doctor Godfrey Chale confirmed that Wema is suffering from Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD). PCOD is a hormonal disorder whose symptoms are enlarged ovaries containing multiple small cysts that prevent the ovaries from fertilizing.
Wema was diagnosed with the condition by India’s specialized doctors and required an urgent operation to remove the cysts that would have resulted in Uterine cancer had she taken longer to seek treatment.
Wema further disclosed that she is currently on medication and expects to be fully recovered by next year when she will try to get pregnant again.
