Felipe Santana: Tell me the story. When did you start feeling this pain?
Anita: The first time I faced this crisis in my life was the video recording of Show das Poderosas. This was the first time I felt this pain in my life. I felt like I was going to die. And while I’m making it, I kind of stop and breathe, I think, oh my God, am I going to be able to record and dance? And I went there. I recorded to the end, but after recording the video I went straight to the hospital in pain.
It took nine years to find an answer.
Felipe Santana: Did you think it was what this pain?
Anita: I don’t know. They thought it was a lack of hygiene, so I became paranoid about hygiene. And things didn’t get better. I have taken antibiotics for 6 months in a row. I took everything medicine, I did everything people and doctors said. I don’t know what it’s nothing.
It took a while, but anyway, a friend’s doctor figured out what caused a lot of pain Anita.
“He put me on an MRI, and he saw endometriosis there.”
The endometrium is the tissue that lines the uterine cavity. Endometriosis occurs when this tissue begins to leave the uterus toward the ovaries and into the abdominal cavity. Symptoms can be:
- Colic during menstruation.
- Pain during intercourse.

Lack of information and delay in diagnosis were the reasons that led the singer Anita to be revealed publicly.
“It’s always our fault, we always do something wrong. Then I said, ‘I’m going to say this publicly, because everything I say today has a very wide scope.’ If I can somehow reach out to women who are in the same situation as me or at first. And after I spoke A lot of people came to talk to me. So, my desire was just to improve women in general, you know? More information for things to change.”
