My story began when I first got my period age 11. I was always in pain, missing school, etc. I was taken to the doctor who told me this was part of life.
I would love to have another child but unfortunately, I don’t see it happening again without more surgery, and I’m not in a position to travel to a country that recognises the disease. As a woman I feel constantly let down by this country.
I am one of the lucky ones…well at least that if I have endometriosis at all as I am, as yet, undiagnosed.. when I say I am lucky I mean that I got my period aged 11 and had them perfectly normally like clockwork every 28 days aside from one random agonising one age 24 that had me rolling around in pain.
