Today is day 7 of the Bloggers Fertility Conference and my blog post on What PCOS Feels Like is the featured post! Many of you probably remember this post from PCOS Awareness Month – it’s gotten quite a bit of traffic since it first published. It’s sad that so many women can relate to it, but I’m also glad that the internet has provided a way for us to connect together and support each other. If you haven’t read my post yet, please check it out! It is an honor to get to participate in this online fertility conference. I hope you’re all enjoying the diversity of posts as much as I am. Here my version of PCOS:
With it being PCOS Awareness Month, I feel like I should focus more on sharing the cold hard truth of PCOS and what it’s like to live with it daily, as well as ways that we can combat it. I’ve shared before that it’s very important to understand that PCOS looks very different for every woman. This post is what PCOS looks like for me, the day-in and day-out of living with it month to month. I’m an estrogen-dominant PCOSer, weak in progesterone, and thankfully low in testosterone, which tends to be a big trigger for most women.
This is what PCOS feels like… for me. This post is to bring awareness to this syndrome that so many people simply do not understand. They think it’s just the infertility side of things, but don’t quite realize how truly uncomfortable every day can be with PCOS.
This is my life.
