According to her, she knew deep down that something was not right and she went to see doctors at different hospitals who thought there was nothing medically wrong with her.

Tania continued by saying that she was told in Austria that her illness was in her head even though she had heavy and painful periods where she bled for three weeks out of four.

She was constantly in and out of the hospital and a doctor told Tania's dad that she was seeking attention.


Tania's solution came through when she saw a Tanzanian supermodel Milan who shared her story and battle with endometriosis.

After researching, Tania found out about the hospital even though her Nigerian coworkers whom she was working with in South Africa at that time told her she couldn't be battling the same thing.

On getting to the hospital, Tania met the supermodel and knew that that was her sign from God, and when the doctor eventually saw her, they had to go into surgery the next day.

"So many women suffer this and are constantly being told nothing is wrong with them, God bless the specialists who are doing the work and helping women Hopefully more gets done. Glad she got the help she needed ❤️"


"Nobody understands endometriosis as much as the person going through it. The pain is unimaginable."


"Such a great dad. The things girls go through sometimes. God help us."


"Endometriosis is insane! No one can understand till you see the pain the affected person is going through."


"I empathize with Tania as I can totally relate. Endometriosis is insane! I'm yet to see one person who got diagnosed by the first doctor they met. It takes consistent and intentional self-advocacy to get the help and treatment you need."
