The Face Of Endometriosis.

This disease that often goes undetected has a name. This disease that often causes unexplained pain has a name. This disease that robbed my womb of the child that I longed for has a name. This disease that will forever leave its visible marks on my body has a name. The name is endometriosis, and it also has a face.

My name is Ashleigh, and I am 28. I was told at a young age that I would never be able to have a child — and then I was the woman who was blessed by the surprise of her miracle babies. I am also the woman who experienced secondary infertility, two miscarriages, and one ectopic pregnancy. I am the woman who underwent laparoscopic surgery to remove endometriosis in hopes of living a healthy life. I am the woman who struggled to recover after surgery and questioned every day if it was worth it — and if I would ever win the daily battle. I am the face of many. I am the face of a disease that has multiple fronts.

My story is one of many — my story is both trial and victory. Many battles have been won, but a war will always be in the midst. I may never be able to carry another child, I often wonder if I will ever fully recover from this disease. But I do know that no battle ever won was won without a tear-stained face, bravery, faith, trial, and dedication to the commitment of winning the war.

My name is Ashleigh, and endometriosis is my battle. I go to fight every day for my own health — but with each fight, I come closer to winning the war.

My name is Ashleigh, and I am just one of the many faces of endometriosis.
