“1 in 10 women have a condition called endometriosis: when we (the 10%) have our periods, the layer that forms inside our uterus also grows on the outside. It is excruciating but very common. Also, the only cure is to get rid of your uterus or to cope with pain, painkillers, surgery, or having a coil placed inside of you (the worst pain I have ever experienced in my life). We also experience pain quite often because of the cysts growing inside of us.

When I was diagnosed with it, I had never heard of it before, so trying to spread this info to those of you who might not be familiar with this. Also, sending a lot of love to the 10%. ”
