    Olivia Culpo has undergone surgery to treat her endometriosis

    The 28-year-old model said back in September she had no plans to have surgery for her condition - which causes the uterine lining to grow outside of the uterus - as she was set on seeking holistic methods of treatment


    But in an Instagram post on Thursday (19.11.20), the beauty revealed she has gone under the knife to help ease the pain caused by her condition.

    In a lengthy post aimed at raising awareness for endometriosis, Olivia wrote: “Yesterday I had surgery for my endometriosis. Not a very glamorous post but I felt like I needed to share this to create more awareness around this disease.

    “Endometriosis is a condition where tissue from the uterine lining decides to grow in other random parts of your body, causing pain. This can interfere with fertility and overall health and honestly – happiness.

    “To top things off it is excruciatingly painful but nearly impossible to see through an ultrasound (unless you have endometrioma/chocolate cysts on your ovaries- that’s what I had). I have been in agony for years around my period and I was misdiagnosed countless times by doctors. ‘Just take Tylenol every day’ ‘ultrasound looks normal,’ ‘I think you just need to rest more, periods are always uncomfortable for people,’ etc. I know a lot of people out there in the Endo community are familiar with these diagnoses which is why I am so passionate about this. (sic)”

    Olivia closed her post by thanking the medical staff who treated her, and reached out to anyone else suffering with endometriosis, as she said she “understands” what they are going through.

    She added: “I want to say thank you to @drvilasagar_endosurgeon and the amazing hospital staff at @atriumhealth who took care of me. You guys were literally angels to me and I am so grateful.

    “To anyone out there who has endometriosis, I understand the depression, and overall loneliness that can occur with a condition that is so painful yet so hard to be interpreted by other people outside of the body. It’s hard when chronic pain is not validated and you don’t get an answer or understanding.

    “To my Endo warriors, I will continue to spread more awareness around endometriosis so that your symptoms can be validated. You are not alone and you are so strong !!!! (sic)”
