Tia Mowry Gives Hope To Other Women With Endometriosis Wanting To Conceive
Endometriosis is a condition in which tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside the uterus. With endometriosis, the tissue can be found on the ovaries, fallopian tubes or the intestines.
In a recent Instagram post, she posted a slideshow of photos from her pregnancies and spoke about regaining hope after her diagnosis.
“I’m so thankful everyday that Cree and Cairo came into our lives. Having endometriosis meant pregnancy wasn’t easy for me. I wasn’t even sure I would get there – I was so scared when I first heard my diagnosis, thinking I might not be able to have kids.
“And I know that I’m not the only one who has been on that same journey. But I learned that having endo doesn’t necessarily mean that a person’s dream of having a child won’t come true, she wrote.”
Tia Mowry added that she made dietary changes that also helped her manage the symptoms of the pelvic disorder, which include, heavy periods and bleeding between periods, pelvic pain, cramping, pain during intercourse, bloating and more.
“And after making dietary changes, focusing on my health, and a lot of prayer came my beautiful children,” Tia Mowry continued. “So for others out there with endometriosis, I see you – and send you love, strength, encouragement and healing.”
Endometriosis affects roughly 11 percent of American women but it is difficult to diagnose in Black women due to racism and implicit bias in the medical field.
According to www.healthline.com, women with endometriosis should avoid red meat, foods that are high in trans fat and gluten.
