PCOS: Where Do I Start?
by Jesika Divine
My name is Jesika and I was diagnosed with PCOS about a year ago.
I am 24 years old, and I have always had a problem with my menstrual cycle. I would have it one month, and then I wouldn't get it for 3-4 months at a time.
I always knew/felt something was wrong, but I never thought to get it looked into because it wasn't a big deal.
Well, my fiancé and I have been trying to conceive for the past year with no luck.
When I told my doctor what was going on, I got blood work done and a pelvic ultrasound, and that's when the bomb dropped.
My entire life all I ever wanted to be is a mother, so when I heard the news I was very, very depressed about it.
I felt like I couldn't talk to anyone about it because anyone who doesn't have PCOS thinks it's not a big deal...when in reality it IS a big deal.
Even when I spoke to my fiancé about it he said it was going to be okay and that we will figure it out, but it still felt like he doesn't understand the hurt that I feel...like why me?!
I don't know about anyone on here but I feel very alone and I don't even know where to start. Nothing is wrong with my weight and I guess I could eat healthier, but I don't have the money for it. As a women who can't conceive naturally (without medications I mean, which was the only option they gave me that I would be able to conceive), it hurts my pride.
Reading these stories have given me a new sense of hope. I just wish there was more like a support group that we could sit down and talk and give advice etc...to all the women that have PCOS.
I understand what you're going through and never give up. It will always be hard for us, but God only gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers.
