It was great to be back in Parliament today speaking about issues important to me - like endometriosis, which affects 1 in 10 women. My message to women experiencing pain is don't suffer in silence. Get it checked and checked again.
My admiration goes to all those working so hard to raise awareness of Endo - especially Leslie and Syl Freedman, and all the team at EndoActive Australia & NZ. ... See MoreSee Less

Hi Lovely Endo Sisters! Just wanted to know what sort of heat packs/hot water bottles you use? Mine is a long rectangle one but I wanted to know if there are triangle ones out there? Also if there are ones where they stay hot for longer? ... See MoreSee Less
HI Natalie - of course hot water bottles and wheat bags are great but if you're out and about we find the Hottteeze heat packs are brilliant. You can use more than one at a time, they're discreet and last for over 12 hours. Pour the contents into the garden afterwards!!

Endo on the today show in a few hours!It's often brushed off as "women's business," but it's becoming a silent epidemic. Endometriosis is a disease that affects a staggering one in ten Australian women, yet it's rarely spoken about! Would you like to see that change? Let us know your thoughts and tune in for the chat TOMORROW on Today's Agenda. #9Today ... See MoreSee Less
Yes!!! Can we also include Adenomyosis when we talk about Endo. I never even heard of it until i was diagnosed.
100% yes and I can happily tell someone my story. 12 years sufferering no kids lost my fertility gone thru menopause not even 33 yet.
Please be more open, but one thing I think is super important to remember with anyone that you know suffering endo is that just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there, and just because we look “fine” doesn’t mean we aren’t crying on the inside from the pain and feeling like we are rotting from the inside out. We just get on with it. An invisible disease doesn’t mean being oblivious to it... much love to my fellow endo sisters.

Yes, we should be more open about endometriosis. As it affects 1 in 10 women. It needs alot more awareness, so that soo many women don't have to suffer in silence anymore. I have suffered from endometriosis since I was approximately 18 years old, I'm now 40 years old. I am currently contemplating a hysterectomy, as the pain is excruciating now. There is also a possibility that it could be growing into my bowel. Endometriosis can spread anywhere throughout your body outside of the uterus. It can even spread to the brain. When endometriosis lesions flare up, they can cause excruciating pain.
Yes it took about 10 years to get diagnosed with it and not have a Dr say that it's normal period pain or you get the pain every month you should be use to it by now just take a pain killer
Yes!!! I was diagnosed at the age of 19...I had no idea what it was, I was in pain constantly (I'm now 33). I have lost count with how many minor surgeries I have had. More awareness and the ability for others to understand what endometriosis is and what women go through and drawing attention to what support is out there is important.
Yes and I can say that seeing my daughter in year 12 go through this ongoing debilitating condition this year is so hard and trying to give her positive strategies when there isn’t a cure is extremely hard. She is incredibly academic and gorgeous young lady and has had to give up her job, lifestyle and now she is re thinking her career. Not something you ever plan and have to endure for our beautiful daughter. She has already had the laparoscope in January and is still suffering symptoms. Taking her to a top research specialist in Endometriosis in Sydney to get some daily strategies to help her get through this year.
Yes 100%. It took me a very very long time to be diagnosed. It took me a very long time to find a doctor who knew about it, wanted to help me and was compassionate.
This shouldn't even be a question!! This is women's health - women's LIVES at sake, OF COURSE we should be talking about it!! This disease and many others like it need so much more attention and help finding a cure
Is it just me or does it always sound like the reporters always say endometriosis really weird lol!! Really good segment tho! Good on them for talking about it 💪.
Danielle Loizou its on thjs mkrning!
Yes it is such a nasty disease I know I've had it everyone is different I found A marvelous Lady that helped me through massage and minerals
Yes for sure!!!!!!
