Ashlea’s Journey: I wish there was a cure out there. It effects lives, effects careers, effects relationships…

The awareness needs to be made so other people wouldn’t have to go through what I have at the age of 29.

I have had 10 surgeries, numerous pills & medications injections, I have had a complete hysterectomy at age 25, I was told I would never be able to have children. However, I’m so lucky I got my miracle baby at age 22.

And just recently Feb. of last year I had laparotomy and left salpingo oophprectomy, because the small percent chance after my hysterectomy of the endo coming back was me I got it back I went through all that for nothing.

I am now in early menopause I am age 29 this a horrible illness has took over my life and career. I have to deal with this emotionally and physically all because off endometriosis. Since all these surgeries my bones are all weaker my muscles are weaker I have back problems bone problems, for such a young age this horrible disease as affected my everything I wish everyone had the knowledge and facts of this horrible disease we need this out there it’s effecting to many women I wish there was also a cure that could change life’s before it changes you. happy to share my story and endo journey.
