Olivia Culpo recently revealed that she is suffering from endometriosis and now she’s opening up about her battle with the painful disorder, plus what she’s doing to treat it.
If you didn’t know, the Mayo Clinic defines endometriosis as a “painful disorder in which tissue similar to the tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus — the endometrium — grows outside your uterus.”
Olivia opened up to People during a recent interview.
“It was something that I was nervous to share because I really didn’t know if people would be familiar with the condition, and it turns out a lot of women are,” Olivia said. “I was shocked to see how many women have also suffered from endometriosis, and how many questions women have about painful periods. They’re not normal, and they could get in the way of your fertility.”
Olivia does not have any plans right now to get laparoscopic surgery and says she’s “trying to do the holistic route as of now.
“I want to try to see if I can figure some things out for myself, but we’ll see. It’s a journey,” she added. “Every month is different because I try different things every month. But I’ll definitely keep everybody posted on what works for me, and eventually having to get the surgery because it really depends. Everyone’s different.”
Olivia was interviewed while promoting Crest Whitening Emulsions leave-on teeth whitening treatment, which she uses up to four times a day. You can see photos of her putting it on in the gallery.
