Savannah Chrisley isn't holding back when it comes to her health journey

Revealing her personal health issues with the world was no easy feat for Savannah Chrisley, but the reality star thought it had to be done. During the second half of Season 8, Chrisley Knows Best fans will get an inside look at the influencer's everyday struggles.

"You will definitely be seeing these hard conversations being had. I do talk about my endometriosis and the possibility of freezing my eggs," Chrisely told TV Insider. "Women with endometriosis often considered saving their eggs for later, since they have a higher rate of infertility and difficulty getting pregnant," according to Johns Hopkins Medicine. "We definitely dive deep," the advocate continued. "We were given this platform. If I can talk about my struggles to help others, I'm willing to do that."

Although sharing her story may be "challenging," Chrisley said being able to control her own narrative on her reality show allows for a "good balance when it comes to having your personal life out there," adding, "I'm trying to figure out when is enough, enough and too much, too much."
