A Symbol Of Strength!

Australian wildlife conservationist, Bindi Sue Irwin, opens up about her decade long, painful journey with endometriosis.

Despite her reluctance, she felt like it was her responsibility to speak up and help other women who feel the same way.

Endometriosis is a painful condition and very often goes misdiagnosed or takes 6-10 years just to be diagnosed.

Bindi said her doctor told her the pain is simply something she would have to live with as a woman.

She was encouraged by her friend Leslie Moslier to persevere and find a solution. Bindi underwent surgery for the same and is thankful for her family and friends who have supported her throughout this journey.

She hopes to encourage women to leave behind the stigma and not deal with their pain in silence, but find answers.
