The beauty shared her dreaded journey via Instagram as she explained how the illness caused prolonged periods that rendered her unable to go to the office.

“This was me in 2015. Ten years earlier, in 2005, I had just undergone a laparoscopy for deep ovarian endometriosis, also known as endometriomas or ovarian cysts,” she said.

Since high school, Janet had to endure grueling pains during that time of the month but the disease was brought to light later after she underwent a non-invasive surgery.

“It causes the formation of cavities within the ovary that fill with blood,” she continued.

To counter the symptoms of the disease, the beauty was put on birth control and could only stop using the medication when she was trying to get pregnant.

According to her lengthy message, Janet struggles whenever she does not take her medication and the pain is simply indescribable.

“Finally getting a diagnosis was such a breakthrough and I was put on birth control thereafter and have had to continue using this, except for the times we were trying for a baby. Until today, if I do not take my medication, I will struggle during my period,” the beauty penned.

Two more TV hosts have come forward to share their sad, brave and painful journey with the disease and their relentless fight against it.

BBC’s Ciru Muriuki and former The Trend panelist Njambi Koikai have numerously narrated how the disease ravaged their bodies and weakened them whenever they had their monthly periods.

Njambi is currently undergoing treatment in the US and has had to endure countless lifesaving procedures.
