Bindi Irwin discusses how her diagnosis leaves her and other women in “Unbelievable Pain”

Bindi Irwin grew up in the spotlight (as the daughter of Terri and Steve Irwin), and she has chosen to share much of her life with fans.

She has bravely decided to share the happy moments and the difficult, challenging things she has been through.

This includes her endometriosis diagnosis, and her decision to speak about it has raised awareness of the condition.

Still, talking about something that leaves you in so much pain has not been without its challenges, and in a recent interview with Page Six, Irwin addressed this.

“It’s really scary sharing the parts of you that have been the hardest to overcome, sharing things that feel so incredibly personal,” she told the publication while attending the Endometriosis Foundation of America’s (EndoFound) 12th Annual Blossom Ball.

It has been a year since Bindi Irwin went public about her endometriosis struggle. She understands that there is not enough discussion about it, and many women live with immense pain. “It’s ignored in so many ways, and so many women and girls are living in unbelievable pain,” she told Page Six. “It’s so important to me to be able to share my journey, so maybe it will inspire other people and maybe help them with the opportunity to stand up and say, ‘Hey, this isn’t normal, and I deserve to get help. I deserve to feel good.'”

In her chat, she told the publication how she had been in pain from a young age, trying to find answers. The hardest part is medical professionals continually dismissed her. The situation only worsened after she became a mother in 2021. “It was getting to the point where I wasn’t just having pain during my period; it was every single day of my life, and after having my daughter, it snowballed,” she said. “A lot of people hear if you get pregnant and have a baby, it gets better, but, for me — Grace was our beautiful, miracle baby — and after I had her, my symptoms escalated 10-fold.”

Fans of Bindi Irwin will know that this is not the first time she has discussed her endometriosis diagnosis and the pain she has endured. In March 2023, she shared a photo of herself on Instagram, taken from her hospital bed. In the caption, she informed fans of how she had decided to speak about her condition in public after dealing with it in private for a decade. The reason she went public was to help others who may find themselves in similar situations.

“For 10 years, I’ve struggled with insurmountable fatigue, pain & nausea,” she wrote. “Trying to remain a positive person & hide the pain has been a very long road. These last ten years have included many tests, doctor visits, scans, etc. A doctor told me it was simply something you deal with as a woman & I gave up entirely, trying to function through the pain.” She credits a friend for helping her find the answers that led to her endometriosis diagnosis.

“I decided to undergo surgery for endometriosis,” she shared. “Going in for surgery was scary, but I knew I couldn’t live like I was. Every part of my life was getting torn apart because of the pain. To cut a long story short, they found 37 lesions, some very deep & difficult to remove, & a chocolate cyst. @seckinmd’s first words to me when I was in recovery were, ‘How did you live with this much pain?'”

She continued, “Validation for years of pain is indescribable. My family & friends who have been on this journey with me for 10+ yrs – THANK YOU, for encouraging me to find answers when I thought I’d never climb out.” She continued to thank a long list of people and reminded others always to be considerate of each other because you never know what someone is going through.
