My name is Hatice, I'm 17
and I might seem a bit young but illness hits you whatever
age you are at. I am writing this message to share my
story with you.... I first went to the doctor when I
was 13 to explain the unbeliavable pain I had. He sent
me to a scan and it revealed that I had PCOS.
At first I did not really
know what it was, but as I got older and was 16, I had
ballooned to a size 14 which hurt me and I had to go
to doctors. I had already been on pills, but the doctor
refused to do anything and refuses now because he says
that he needs to see with a camera (transvaginal ultrasound)
but because I still am a virgin they just try new pills
which make me hairy on my back especially and acne started
occuring badly on my face.. These days I really am stressed
about this problem because the doctor says I need to
start fertility tratment when I want a baby and that
I have a very low percentage of conceiving naturally
or that it may be impossible. It hurts so much that
I might not ever have children I sometimes cry myself
to sleep because no one would necessarily want me as
I would not be able to give them a baby..
But I still am hopeful that
I will have a baby of my own blood. These days I am
trying to concentrate on my A-Levels for Law but still
this illness is there somewhere always reminding me.
I still thank God because there are worse illnesses
out there. Thanks for taking your time and reading this....
What is PCOS?
