Natalie Githinji opens up about how her medical condition affected her love life
Heartbreak is something that everyone goes through at some point in their lives. It could be because of financial problems, infidelity, or simply falling out of love. However, being dumped because of an illness is a whole different story.
Natalie Githinji, a popular content creator and NRG Radio presenter, knows this all too well.
Natalie has been dumped multiple times by guys she dated after they found out that she was battling endometriosis.
“Some of the guys I dated left me when they found out I had endometriosis. Imagine, I guess I’m a burden when I’m sick, I understand where they’re coming from,” Natalie said during an interview with a local media house on Monday.
Endometriosis is a condition in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus, causing painful periods, heavy bleeding, and pain during sex or bowel movements
The condition became so severe for Natalie that she could barely walk because of the excruciating pain.
It was in 2016 when Natalie developed painful cramps, and the flow was overwhelming, that she discovered she had endometriosis.
“I wish I had known about it sooner, I would have caught it sooner. I found out seven years later,” adds Natalie.
She had gone for a second opinion, and the doctor accidentally mentioned that she might have the condition, something that the previous doctors she had seen had never told her about.
The condition caused her to lose a lot of weight and even made her feel suicidal at one point. She describes her endometriosis journey in three words.
Despite the challenges she faces, Natalie is not fighting anything and is doing everything humanly possible to enjoy life.

Inside Daddy Owen's Sh37M hospital hostel in Kijabe

He added that the corridors are also spacious enough to allow for multiple movements within the building at the same time.
The hostel, which is set to be completed soon with workers finalizing its interior works, will have two kitchens.
One will be located on the ground floor while the other will be upstairs to help those who need to use the cooking area run things smoothly.
