There is more support for the Cornish women battling a condition which can leave them infertile.

Founder Sara Gadd from Constantine wasn't diagnosed until her forties:

Sara tells Pirate FM it affects every part of your life: "You have to schedule your life around that fact that you know you're going to be in pain, you know you're not going to be able to walk or get out of bed, so you have to try and speak to employers, you have to try to get people to understand."
