Recounting her battle with the condition to BBC, Jahmby revealed that she didn’t know about her endometriosis condition during her first painful periods.

She persevered through the monthly torment thinking every woman goes through a similar ordeal. Her mother and grandmother were the non wiser and urged her to persevere and she used painkillers to alleviate the agony.  

“Before having my first period at 13, I never imagined I'd go through such pain; it's been a massive battle,” she said.

“There's one emergency surgery I will never forget. It was discovered that I had fluids in my lungs. I  was already in a lot of pain from previous surgeries and this one almost killed me,” she recalled.

Jahmby has since focused on raising awareness of the condition.
