“Today I Am Not Only The Proud Mother Of Three Children, But On Top Of That, I Can Proudly Call Myself Mama Ejima” – Woman Who Battled With PCOS Shares Her Story

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a problem in which a woman’s hormones are out of balance. It can cause problems periods and make it difficult to get pregnant. PCOS also may cause unwanted changes in physical appearances.

If it isn’t treated, over time it can lead to serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease. Most women with PCOS grow many small cysts on their ovaries.

Nwayiocha who is married to an igbo man was told by the doctor that she may not be able to bear children because she had PCOS, but she is not only the mother of three, she also had twins.

She wrote,

There was a time in my life I thought I couldn’t have children. My doctor told me I suffered from PCOS – the most common endocrine disorder among women between the ages 18 and 44 – and that my chances of having children were close to zero.

When you are dreaming of starting your own family, the pain and heartache that go with such a diagnose are absolutely overwhelming. But as it turned out, God had a different plan for me. Today I am not only the proud mother of three children, but on top of that, I can proudly call myself mama ejima!

This is a very personal fact about me and I was really not sure if I should write about it at first. But knowing that there are other women like me, looking for a child at this very moment, or husbands waiting for their wife’s to get pregnant, I just felt it was right to share my story and tell you all that there is hope. I am a living proof.
