Our Story

Hello! My name is Ana the founder of Easy Mensies and I want to share with you where Easy Mensies came from. 

In 2018, I was diagnosed through a laparoscopy surgery with a severe case of endometriosis. Endometriosis is a very painful chronic illness that can manifest with a lot of symptoms during our menstrual cycle and it is different for everyone. In my case, I suffered debilitating menstrual cramps for over 17 years, and because the doctors could never find what I had, I thoutht at some point it was all in my head. Once I was diagnosed, I embarked on a healing jurney until I discovered natural products that changed my life. I understood that I had a greater purpose for my suffering, so I created Easy Mensies in 2020 to help other women and give them hope. We are proudly women-owned, women-run, and we are more than ready to change the world a woman at a time.

My endo (because I own it now!), was so severe that it grew into my bowels by the time the doctors discovered it. Having endo in the bowels meant that I had to be very careful as to what I ate or drank because it was causing me to bleed in my rectum. I also had other endo symptoms like being bloated, pelvic pain, infertility, lower back pain, fatigue, anemia, painful bowel movements, excessive bleeding, nausea, diarreah… and the list goes on. My symptoms were not always the same which had me on high alert. 

Before my diadnosis, I spent prioritizing and preparing for what I thought was my dream career. As I finally became the urban planner/ architect that I ambitioned, my health screamed to take the front seat in my life. After all of the hard work and sacrifice, I forgot about taking care of myself along the way and I was in a debilitating state when I finally noticed. Sleepless nights, poor eating habits, stress, and overall poor health were the breaking point for my body and mind.

My life path has changed because I am prioritizing my health now and because I found a new passion. My passion is about helping and educating other women that are in pain. I understand what it is like to feel helpless and alone in this battle. I am passionate about letting the 1 in 10 women around the world that are suffering from endometriosis or any hormonal illness know they are not alone. I want to spread the word on this illness so we can get funding and finally find a cure, so we can have better menstrual health education in schools, so we can get better treatment in hospitals, and we can get work policies that can help us thrive. Overall I am passionate about creating a new way of life for women with chronic pain.

Like many of you, I was asked to take Lupron, get pregnant with IVF or a hysterectomy but I decided to go with an alternative route. I was cautioned to get my endo removed because of its position and the high risk of getting an organ punctured during the operation. I choosed to treat endo holistically at it helped with a lot of the symptoms. In 2019, I was put on a hormonal regimen and it helped with my pain but gave me some side effects, this was required to  improve the chances on my surgery. In 2020, I got my second laparoscopy surgery to excise endo and a colon resection as it already had infiltrated the colon walls. After 7+ hours of surgery, two surgeons operating on me and 7 days of hospital recovery, I finally have a better quality of life.

Even after surgery I am still dealing with some endo symptoms but I am very grateful to had the knowledge of great natural products to manage the pain and other symptoms. I used to feel small as my own health advocate against this huge unknown, but I found the strength to fight and not let this chronic illness interfer with my daily activities. Just like me, I know there are thousands of women looking for a new way of life that can take some of the pain away and make our lives better.

I am on a quest to bring awareness to endo, and help other women manage their pain in a more natural and holistic way while helping them live their best life. I also want to inspire other amazing women out there that are fighting chronic illnessness.

I hope my journey and our company jurney can inspire you.

Love,

Ana
