Welcome to my World


When I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome I, like many people facing the same fate, immediately cleaned the shelves of the local bookstores for every book about PCOS and infertility that I could find.  I feverishly spent weeks and months reading followed by months of searching the Internet for more material and information.  Amazingly, many written works exist in conjunction with blogs, websites, forums, groups, chat rooms, and I have always been thankful that I am going through this confusing and emotional time in what is so blissfully referred to as the information age.  If this time were still the dark ages when information was only found by relying on the books available at the library and hard to come by without the incredible advancements of technology that allows all information to instantly be accessible via the internet I would probably be driving myself further insane due to over-thinking, analyzing, and self-diagnosis.

Though I have found a wealth of information and have indulged in an absorbent amount of it not many written works are available dealing with both Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and infertility at the same time.  Knowing what I do, a significant majority of the women suffering from this confusing and multi-faceted disorder face an upward hill of fertility struggles too, in fact, it is how most women discover that she has PCOS in the first place.  So this blog is for you, and for me; the woman who is suffering from the effects and symptoms of PCOS and trying to create a family at the same time.

About thepcosandinfertilityjourney

For almost two years I have felt so down and alone trying to maintain a normal and happy life since I realized that my husband and I would struggle to create a family. I began to second guess everything in my life, have I done the right things, made the right choices, is it my job, is it where I live, what is it and what can I do to make it better? Then, one night while laying in bed it hit me, and the words just started flowing. I have always loved writing and when I was little always wanted to be an author but never had the inspiration of something to write about; now I do. I am going to share my story, my struggles, my hopes, my fears, my triumphs in the hope that it will help someone else going through the same rollercoaster that I am the way many books, blogs, and chats have helped me cope. I will share with you how I am determined to make sure that one of my life’s dreams are not shot down and the obstacles I go through to get there.
