“Have your flowers; this is bold” – Empress Njamah, Ihuoma Ejiofor, others react as Stephanie Coker opens up on her struggle with PCOS

Nollywood actresses Ihuoma Ejiofor and Empress Njamah have shown their colleague, Stephanie Coker, love after her emotional interview about her battle with PCOS.

Kemi Filani reported that Stephanie, in an interview with Chude Jideonwo, revealed that she almost killed herself after her second IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) failed. According to her, she had spent over $40,000 and had travelled to Los Angeles for an IVF operation last year, which unfortunately failed.

She disclosed that IVF was the only option for her because of her diagnosis of PCOS – which led her to be hospitalised last year after fainting. She stated that she used a wheelchair, and at one point, she had to sleep outside in the garden because the internal heat was too much.

Showing support for her, Ihuoma Ejiofor and Empress Njamah sent love her way.
