Episode Info: Do you know what Endometriosis is? Can you believe that as many women have it as have diabetes, yet it can take up to 7 years to diagnose? Meet Claire aka @EndoLady on twitter who I found online sharing her experience of Endometriosis.

Claire blogs regularly in a really honest and enlightening way and works as a volunteer for Endometriosis UK Which leads me onto my second guest, Emma Cox, CEO of Endometriosis UK the leading charity that supports women living with Endometriosis. The organisation works to improve the lives of people affected by endometriosis and to decrease the impact it has on those with the condition and their families and friends.
