Ever heard of PCOS? I’ll confess.

I first heard of the word PCOS Post-COVID. It’s fascinating how many women live with it, unknowingly navigating its complexities for years. Perhaps you can relate or maybe you are still in the dark about it. Trust me, you are not alone.

Not knowing anyone dealing with PCOS, I remained blissfully oblivious. Little did I realize that countless women, maybe even someone you know, silently struggle with this condition. 15% of women of reproductive age have PCOS. It is one of the most common causes of women’s infertility. Surprised? So was I. Despite its prevalence, many women are in the dark about it. Let’s talk about it.

So, what is PCOS? It is short for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. But it is more than just a tongue-twisting term. LOL

Picture this: you are living your life, navigating your daily routines, dreams, and aspirations. Suddenly, you start having irregular periods, hormonal imbalances, weight struggles, and it is like your body is playing a game of its own.

The truth is, PCOS is diverse. It does not have a one-size-fits-all appearance. It is unique to each person it touches. From sudden mood swings to unexpected hair growth, from fertility battles to acne that feels like you just hit puberty again. It is a medley of experiences and most times, it is happening all at once.

Yet, here is the silver lining. Understanding PCOS gives you power. It’s like deciphering a secret code that unlocks a new chapter of self-awareness. Once you know, you can take charge, make informed decisions, and seek the support you deserve. If you suspect that you or someone you know might have PCOS, it’s important to seek medical attention.
