It is PCOS awareness month, and The Infertility Voice is doing a series of guests posts in honor of it called “The Voices of PCOS.” I found out that I have PCOS 10 years ago and it has had a profound impact on my life. So many women have it, but every case is different. Additionally, not all doctors know how to treat it, which I experienced first hand.
What Voices of PCOS is all about is sharing the many experiences of women with PCOS and people who treat PCOS. They can range in subject from trying to conceive to diet to pregnancy with PCOS. Each story is unique.
I decided to be brave and share my story this year. It was such an emotional and stressful time of my life, and it makes me feel vulnerable sharing that with complete strangers. In fact, most people, other than close family, don’t know all of the details of my experience. I am not a fantastic writer, but I put my heart into it. I just wanted to share my story in hopes that it may help at least one woman with PCOS.
