"Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that affects a woman's hormone levels. This imbalance causes them to skip menstrual periods and makes it harder for them to get pregnant. I have PCOS too.
Angry. Frustrated. Hopeless. This is how I felt after our initial IVF cycle was cancelled in April 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I channelled this anger into action and started writing to help pass the time during the lockdown.
My original intent was to write a blog post, but it quickly became so much more. I was voted most likely to write a book by my graduating class, and it was time I shared my story with others. My goal is that this book provides clarity and a glimmer of hope for anyone who is struggling with infertility. Hang in there, you can do this."
