“I always wanted to be a mother and if that had been taken away from me because of this condition it would have been bad.”
Affecting one in ten women, endometriosis causes the growth of endometrial-like tissue in various organs around the body.
The buildup of tissue can be minimal but in severe, more painful cases it can cause scarring that fuses the organs together due to the time it takes for the cells to leave the body after they proliferate during the menstrual cycle.
Danielle went to her doctor at the age of 30 after years of experiencing bad menstrual pain that she described as “unbearable”.
While there is no cure for endometriosis, medications can be used to relieve pain and birth control pills can be used to make your period lighter.
Still, Danielle said she found getting off the pill helped, and told her how she met Tommy six months after her diagnosis.
The couple moved in together after just two weeks and then six weeks later, Danielle found out she was pregnant with daughter Orla who was born in May 2020.
Danielle said that when the time came for the couple to try for another baby, she would “see what happens” but would go to her GP if they had problems.
The star said her pregnancy with Orla was difficult but she and Tom hope to have more children, and Danielle believes they will likely end up with three.
