Yesterday, Tanzanian supermodel Millen Magese, who has always talked about her battle with endometriosis, passed out at the Jo’burg Fashion Week.
“I used to do 28-38 shows in bigger fashion weeks then but now only 4 shows,” she captioned the photo of her being helped by a medical team, and then she shared clips, detailing her experience and also to let fans know she is getting better.
In a previous interview with Sunday Sun, Magese revealed her challenges with infertility and how she was diagnosed with the condition when she was just 25. Endometriosis is a disorder in which the membranes that are supposed to line the inside of the uterus extend outside of it, causing severe pain during menstruation because they can’t be broken down and shed.
Magese runs an endometriosis awareness campaign via her foundation, Endometriosis Africa.
