Endo unfiltered : how to take charge of your endometriosis and PCOS

'Endo and PCOS won't stay neatly contained within your body... No chance. They'll bleed into every area of your life: school, work, relationships, finances, self-esteem, mental health... There's no part of your life they won't touch, and that's exactly why I'm going to come at them from all angles in this book.' In this raw, powerful, medically reviewed insider's guide, Erin Barnett - influencer, women's health advocate and star of Beauty and the Geek Australia, Love Island Australian and I'm a Celebrity... - shares her experience of navigating her teens and twenties while living with endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). At fourteen, Erin had the first of many pelvic surgeries. With another fifteen surgeries behind her, she's a self-taught expert when it comes to dealing with endo drama - whether that's dismissive doctors, random bleeding, chronic pain, multiple medications or relationship drama (the list goes on). With her knack for cutting through BS and her trademark sense of humour, Erin is sharing her story and words of wisdom in the hopes of empowering fellow sufferers to take charge of their own health and wellbeing, no matter their age. Recently named an Ambassador for Endometriosis Australia, Erin is part of a growing movement of endo sufferers giving voice to this previously taboo topic that affects a vast group of people - too many of whom suffer in silence believing their pain and symptoms are 'normal'
