Sophie Monk Shocks Fans With Hospital Video
Posting on Monday night from hospital, Sophie Monk revealed her diagnosis via Instagram Story.
Laying in a hospital bed, wearing an oxygen mask and being attended to by a doctor -- the Love Island host posted two videos, the first revealing her diagnosis.
"So many women live not knowing they have endometriosis," the caption on her story read. "If you have annoying cycles. You should ask your dr."
Praising the team at Monash IVF, Monk also posted a second video where she was under anesthetic.
Joking that she had "asked" to be filmed while under, the 38-year-old joked it was the "best sleep" she had in years while again praising the staff at the Sydney clinic.
In September figures from the Department of Health reported more than 700,000 Australian women, or one in 10, are affected by endometriosis, a condition that causes the tissue that normally lines the uterus can be found growing outside the uterus in the body.
