Geordie Shore’s Sophie Kasaei reveals she’s been diagnosed with endometriosis – The Sun

GEORDIE Shore star Sophie Kasaei has bravely made public her battle with endometriosis yet has admitted she's still a bit clueless about the women's health condition.

She revealed she was suffering from the chronic and debilitating illness, that causes painful or heavy periods, earlier this month on her Twitter page.

Yet today she has issued more clarity and vowed to support other sufferers of the horrid condition, which affects one in 10 women in the UK.

Sophie, who recently starred on MTV series Ex On The Beach, posted: "Guys honestly it means so much to me that you are all supporting my recent news about finding out I have #Endometriosis

"I still don’t no [sic] too much about my condition but I promise I will learn more and help and support any other girls going through this."

She rounded off her emotional message with the words: "Love you," and an Emoji love heart.

One fan was quick to reply and offer support, stating: "Welcome to the fight girl! Getting your diagnosis is the first step in this long battle but I promise you, you’ll meet the most fiercely supportive die hard females ever during your journey.

"You may not see this but if you do, any questions AT ALL just ask x"

Fellow reality TV star Charlotte Dawson sent her a series of love heart icons to show her support.

Earlier this month Sophie, 30, wrote on Twitter: "I also have #endometriosis ! It’s such a sad condition that I don’t even no much about tbh!"

The Scottish Sun recently launched a campaign, in partnership with Endometriosis UK, to raise awareness of the condition in a project termed Endo Period Stigma.

Endometriosis occurs when cells like the ones in the lining of the womb (uterus) are found elsewhere in the body – but unlike the cells in the womb that leave the body as a period, the blood has no way to escape.

This causes inflammation, pain and formation of scar tissue which can significantly impact daily life.

Symptoms of endometriosis can vary in intensity but include painful, irregular or heavy periods, fatigue, infertility and pain during or after sex.

Painful bowel movements are also common.

Sophie's reality TV star colleague, Lauryn Goodman recently revealed she was expecting – despite being told during her endometriosis battle she wouldn't be able to have kids.

The 29-year-old was warned by specialists she would never be able to conceive naturally because she suffered from endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome yet has defied the medical odds.

Lauryn shockingly discovered she was five months' pregnant during a routine trip to hospital to have a scan on a kidney problem.

After keeping her baby's dad a secret, Lauryn told The Sun on Sunday she had fallen pregnant after a brief relationship with Kyle Walker, a footballer, over the summer.
