Endometriosis is a disease in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus begins to grow in other places, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes.
The influencer then explained that despite seeing her GP about her concerns, it was the private specialist who ultimately diagnosed her.
“Right away they said, ‘You absolutely have endometriosis, it’s clear as day.’ So I guess that’s kind of a good thing because at least now I know what it is.
It’s not a good thing that I have endometriosis, because it can obviously affect fertility and a lot of other things, and you can never really cure it. “
