Journey to my PCOS Diagnosis

I was 13 years old when I first got my period. All my friends had already got their period and I was the last one. I still remember that it was a Sunday and I ran to tell my mom about it. My mom explained to me everything about periods, how to care for myself and what to expect every month.

I also learned that there is no one-size-fits-all treatment for PCOS, and that it requires a combination of lifestyle changes, medication, and ongoing management to manage symptoms.

It was a lot to take in, and it wasn't easy to come to terms with the fact that I had a chronic condition that I would have to live with for the rest of my life.
