It’s about my journey from PCOS to motherhood. I was diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) at the age of 23. Being an IT professional my working hours used to be so hectic, it was so difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle. At the age of 27, I got married, and after one year of marriage, everyone started asking me to have a baby. Since my husband and I were aware of my condition, I tried to conceive many times but with no luck. So I started talking about my problem of irregular periods with my close family members and friends. But people started making me feel l that just because I am suffering from a disorder, I am infertile. I know how heartbreaking it was for me as it made me feel depressed because I couldn’t ovulate on time.
One day my husband took me to see a doctor, and the doctor made me realise that PCOS is a disease, not a disorder. Also, she informed me that one in ten women would be diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) at some point in their life. So it’s very common nowadays. She prescribed medication for around six months and asked me to maintain a healthy diet. Also, she asked me to be positive, which proved to be the key to happiness in my case. During this medicinal course, I used to go for a walk daily and adopted a healthy diet plan in my routine that worked wonders for weight maintenance. After completion of my six months medicine course, I started getting my periods on time. My doctor gave us a month’s time and asked us to try conceiving naturally, so we tried. I still remember the day, on 11th May 2018, I had a positive pregnancy test in my hands.
It was hard to believe because it was our first month of trying, and I was already pregnant. I have PCOS, and I got pregnant on the first attempt, which made me realise that it’s just a disease, not a disorder. Now I am the mother of a baby boy who is eight months old.
My goal here is to show you that it’s not impossible to get pregnant with PCOS because its a disease which is curable. So be happy & maintain a healthy lifestyle.
