Vibrant radio personality Natalie Githinji has opened up about how her struggles with Endometriosis have impacted her life.

In a candid interview on Oga Obinna's YouTube show, the radio personality did not mince her words as she expressed the challenges she faces, considering her condition.

In the interview, Natalie shared the physical and emotional toll that Endometriosis takes on her daily life. She described moments of intense pain, where she becomes immobilized, requiring assistance even for basic tasks like washing.

"Imagine you are bleeding, It gets to a time when I can't move, you have to wash me, and it's painful, and you are bleeding, and it's embarrassing, so the only person who does that is my mum," she revealed.

Shedding light on the impact the condition has on her dating life, Natalie said that it often discourages potential partners.

"It affects a lot of things in your life, even your relationship, what man wants to date? Coz you are a burden. Who wants to date someone who has to be washed when she is sick?

"You have to carry that person, feed them, you can't even have e by the way. You can but you can't, it's painful," Natalie shared her heartache, highlighting the difficulty of maintaining intimate relationships.

Natalie further explained that the pain associated with Endometriosis becomes a significant barrier to intimacy, leading to misunderstandings and has even been dumped by her partner before as he could not understand what she was going through.

"Imagine when he wants, and all you are telling him is I am feeling pain! Then you wonder why you have been ghosted. Let me tell you it's not funny; you wonder why you were ghosted kumbe ni vidonda zako.

"I've been left coz of Endo; the guy was like sasa wewe kwani kila time uko na shida," she candidly shared her experiences.
