#415 Endometriosis

June 2, 2020


‘Endometriosis’ by Erin Dick

When Erin was told she had an incurable illness, the diagnosis came as a relief.

Endometriosis is an illness that affects 1 in 10 Australian people. Tissue similar to the lining of the uterus is found where it shouldn’t be. It’s often painful, can cause infertility, and it can take years to receive a diagnosis. Endo is a chronic illness with no cure.

Erin shares her story about living with endo, from diagnosis and surgery, to the day-to day of chronic illness.

This story originally aired in March of 2020. 

You can find out more about endometriosis by visiting Endometriosis Australia’s website, or their Facebook page.
