For many years, the model suffered endometriosis – a condition she was diagnosed with when she was just 25. Endometriosis is a disorder in which the membranes that are supposed to line the inside of the uterus extend outside of it, causing severe pain during menstruation because they can’t be broken down and shed.
In March 2016, the model passed out at the Jo’burg Fashion Week due to the intense pain and was resuscitated by a medical professionals at the show. “I used to do 28-38 shows in bigger fashion weeks then but now only 4 shows,” she said in one of the clips shared on her page.
Beyond passing out at shows and dealing with the frequent pain, the model also battled with infertility caused by the condition. However, Millen is now a mum and she can’t stop thanking God, her friends and family and fans who stood by her all these years.

You Must want to change your story for miracles to work. Miracles happens in such a mysterious way . I wanted my story to change so I prayed harder , i took risks ,bold steps with no fear and sympathy. I kept my faith higher than just HOPE . I believed He would hear me out. Father I thank you ,through me you showed your Power . I'm grateful . Last year around this time I lost an embryo #ZoeKhloe . June 30th 2016 . It was so painful to bare but father Lord you had a plan , you're again showing all of us that ,you're a living God and nothing is permanent.
