    from @zainabbalogun Sometime in August 2020, God said “Zainab, I am with you” in a room and country that I wasn’t physically in. When I was told i thought “aww that’s nice” but little did I know what he meant. I recorded this clip back in April. It was so hard to do because I couldn’t articulate very well. It’s chopped up to make some sense because my mind was working against my speech. Yesterday marked a year since my world was rocked and not in a fun way. I’ve always had extremely severe periods and pains. I’m talking passing out in strange places, weeks off work/school and overdosing on painkillers daily type of trauma. This was the norm since i was a teenager. Last year I had a cycle that saw 4 periods in 2 months. I searched long for a gynaecologist that I could trust and feel comfortable with. I found this in the AMAZING Dr Kemi DaSilva-Ibru of @thebreastandgynae. Listen, I can’t commend her enough! Following a few scans, we discovered 2 torsion “twisted” cysts on both my ovaries which needed to be removed quickly. She recommend the PHENOMENAL Dr John Ojukwu of AVLSC who performed my procedure. After tackling the cysts he discovered mid surgery that I had Stage 4 Endometriosis; a widespread of endo cells and tissue growing outside of my uterus on my diaphragm and liver. After twenty something years of pain, we had a root! Treatment started immediately with 2 rounds of Zoladex implants to breakdown the adhesions. This left me in a state of menopause, without a period and with many side effects that were hard to deal with. They say Endo has no cure and symptoms can only be managed but I laugh knowing different. I have danced with what to say and how to say it but ultimately I want people to understand that there is nothing normal about sever period pains or hormone imbalances that affect the quality of your life. It’s not ok! It should not be ignored! I want to encourage someone in pain to look for answers. I hope to share my journey, raise awareness and learn from women who have a similar story to tell. I am riding the wave with the best family/friends. God really did kept that promise to be with me after all 💛

    from @zainabbalogun I have been overwhelmed with your love and stories! I didn’t expect to read about so much pain from hundreds of women. I feel so blessed and connected to you. Based on the IG poll, I will be doing an IG live tomorrow to get into a bit more detail and educate. We will also be doing a zoom session soon that will be more intimate with women experiencing Endo, period conditions and reproductive health issues. If you’d like to join us please send a DM to @thelifewithzee with your email. I’m still trying to figure out how I can help the community and amplify awareness. Drop your suggestions. The journey continues! 💛#endometriosis #Talk #healing #endowarrior #periodpositive #periodstory
