Tonight I put myself out there. It is PCOS awareness month. I was diagnosed 8 years ago when I was trying to have my first child. I went through daily basal body temperatures, ovulation tests, even a doctor who said to eat a candy bar and tablespoon of butter a day (no lie as she just believed I was too small).
It finally took a trip to the specialists who asked if I always had acne breakouts. Yes my face and arms. She had an idea and with a quick test and the ability to not judge me by size I had an answer. Within a month in a half that amazing woman changed my life!
I don't tell you this as just a story but to remember not to judge people by what you see. PCOS is primarily a disease for larger women but the doctor looked past that. The same way you should look past what you see to know that every woman has a story.
P.s. Just me unedited and yes with some acne that I don't hate as much as it helped me learn my disease and get me 2 amazing children!
Please join in below with your own stories or if you know someone who has been through the same. You can also join our private group where we are talking about it also. Looking back there are many signs and symptoms that were all there but didn’t come to light until on amazing specialist connected the dots.
Thank you for listening to my story. While this is only a small part of it I hope it helps other women out there that are going through or have been through the same. I have placed comments on for this blog, so you can feel free to add your story or anything below.
