Hatice's Story
Posted July 28, 2009

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?
