She went on to detail her Endometriosis journey, penning: "I suffered in silence with endometriosis for years (well, not completely in silence, James got a right old earful) but I’d never heard of it…I thought I had bad cramps or IBS… maybe one too many pot noodles (We’ve all be there)."
Victoria also revealed her issues with fertility, explaining that she had "struggled to fall pregnant again", due to her diagnosis.
Urging her followers to not "suffer in silence", the social media personality concluded: "Don’t suffer in silence ladies. Let’s get talking about this. Let’s make some noise."
