Naga Munchetty revealed her adenomyosis diagnosis earlier this year and has now stated that being open about it made her nervous.
The TV actress was diagnosed with the illness in 2022, which occurs when the uterine lining develops deep inside the uterine muscle.
Naga openly acknowledged on BBC Radio 5 in May, “Right now as I sit here talking to you, I am in pain.” Pain that is constant and annoying.
‘In my uterus, around my pelvis – sometimes it runs down my thighs. And I’ll have some level of pain for the entire show and for the rest of the day until I go to sleep.’
She continued: ‘Every so often the pain changes; it becomes a stabbing pain. A pain that takes my breath away and I can do nothing but sit with it for a minute or curl up to cope.’
Naga told Vogue that she was apprehensive about sharing the personal news.

‘I was really nervous,’ she stated but preserved in order to raise awareness for the disease that is thought to impact as many as one in 10 women.
She went on to say that the response has been ‘incredible’.
Naga has been recognised by British Vogue for her efforts “redefining Britain.” They praised the BBC Breakfast host’s live reporting as well as her candour about adenomyosis.
Naga celebrated her victory with a stunning photo shoot. The 48-year-old looked stunning in a black one-shoulder ball gown and matching The Row shoes.
Naga posed with her arms crossed and an angry attitude, which fitted the brief.
Alongside the photo, Naga wrote on Instagram: ‘Delighted to be part of this – what an honour!’
The Vogue 25 honours the powerful women who, in their opinion, are moving British society ahead on their own terms.
Raye, Rye Lane director Raine Allen-Miller, and Heartstopper creator Alice Oseman are also on the list.
