I interviewed the very lovely Emma Kemsley on her experience of endometriosis.

We talk about her experience of living with endometriosis, getting a diagnosis, and how she now copes day to day with her symptoms.

Emma talks very honestly about how it made her feel, the changes she has had to make to her life and how it has impacted her fertility journey.

She has found that the best way for her to manage her endometriosis is to adapt and manage. She tracks her periods and symptoms, learns what triggers the pain and she avoids anything that triggers it. 

Emma also talks about the importance of advocating for yourself if you are struggling to get a diagnosis and support.

The taking control series has been developed to give you lots of ways you can start to feel more in control, whatever your journey looks like, and to highlight the different support available to you.
