The Truth About Nicole’s Amenorrhea Diagnosis on B&B!


Nicole has had quite an eventful past on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL, but her recent medical diagnosis of amenorrhea has the character wondering if she has any kind of future at all!

Nicole first arrived on B&B in January of 2015, played by actress Reign Edwards. She knew her sister Maya’s secret, which was that she was born Myron and actually a transgender woman. Nicole happily kept quiet so she and her sister could reconnect and bond, and eventually Maya told Rick the truth and they got married.

Watt romanced Nicole, but it was just to get Maya’s secret out of her, so she was furious when he betrayed her trust. Becoming an intern at Forrester Creations, the young woman was attracted to fellow newbie Zende, not realizing he was actually a Forrester himself. Their budding romance hit a snag when Thomas kissed Nicole, but Zende wasn’t bothered and continued pursuing her himself.

Rick and Maya wanted to start a family, and Nicole was happy to pay back her sister by acting as a surrogate to carry their child. Zende was supportive of her decision, but once Nicole was actually pregnant with another man’s child, he became uncomfortable and distant. Ultimately they split up and Zende began dating Nicole’s friend, Sasha, who was later revealed to be Nic’s sister!

After Lizzie’s birth, Zende returned to Nicole, but when she considered carrying another child for Rick and Maya, he had another fling with Sasha, one which Nicole had a harder time getting over. But eventually, Zende’s romantic overtures won her over, and they were married on Valentine’s Day in a lavish ceremony.

However, their dreams of having a family of their own was dashed when Nicole struggled to become pregnant and learned from her doctor that she is suffering from amenorrhea and may be infertile due to uterine scarring. Amenorrhea is an absence of menstrual periods in women, but that can often be treated. But Dr. Caspary warned Nicole that it can take a year before they can determine whether or not someone is infertile. So right now it’s a waiting game.

The idea that she may have given up the one child she may ever be able to conceive has shaken Nicole to her core. Will this situation cause Nicole to try and take her sister’s baby back? Stay tuned for all the drama to come!
