Time to diagnosis: 11 years
You wouldn’t know it from Kirsten’s warmth, infectious humour – and glorious laugh – but she’s been through a gruelling, often shocking experience of endometriosis. She’s one successful and inspiring woman, wife and mum.
Now, after all that she’s coped with, Kirsten benefits from hormonal treatment and mindfulness. She often feels drained, especially after work, but she returns to the comfort of her family; Gregor, 11-year old Lewis, and rescue dog Louie. On their walks, camping and visits to the pub, the endometriosis feels far away.
