Reality TV star Uriel Oputa recently posted a heartfelt video capturing her journey to a fertility clinic, where she courageously decided to undergo the process of egg freezing.


The former BBNaija star conveyed her anxieties about the ticking clock while anticipating the right partner to embark on the journey of starting a family.


Egg freezing, a technique supported by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) in the UK, entails the retrieval of a woman’s eggs, their cryopreservation, and subsequent thawing for potential utilization in fertility interventions.



Uriel, a 35-year-old chef who said her mother had given birth to 5 children at her age underscored the importance of this process, highlighting the diminishing quality of eggs after the age of 30, which can constrain a woman’s likelihood of achieving conception.


Within the video, Uriel passionately promotes awareness, encouraging women to contemplate egg freezing as a proactive step to safeguard fertility until the appropriate life partner materializes.


She recognized the difficulties associated with the choice.


In her words; “It’s a hard pill to swallow; at this age I am now, my mother had five children. Time is ticking for me and I am aware, so I decided to weigh my options. If that perfect man doesn’t come now, I need to secure myself and nurture my seeds……”


She accompanied the video with the caption; “I’m creating awareness!!! Apparently by 30 the Quality of our eggs Reduce🥹 Ladies would you consider Freezing your Eggs? Until Mr Right comes?”
