PCOS - @__aliyya__

“My name is Aliyya. I'm 31yrs old, and I have been married almost 9 yrs. Every family reunion, party, or get together someone almost always asks, "When are you going to have some babies" or "You'll be a great mom, it'll happen when it's supposed to". I was diagnosed with PCOS and Blocked Fallopian Tubes in 2013/14 after being pregnant and finding out it was in my tubes, then I had a hsg, then a vaginal ultrasound that saw all the cysts on my ovaries. It has been a depressing, draining, most wonderful and gratifying experience. I started a fitness journey in the hopes of getting pregnant and tried IVF in 2017, but it didn't work. It seemed like everyone around me was with child and all I could think was when is it going to be my turn. Thinking like that made me sad more often than not. Now, I workout cause I want to. I don't wanna believe I need metformin or bc to help with the hormonal imbalance caused by PCOS. I smile because I have come to terms with my diagnosis and whether I have a child or not I have plenty of nieces and nephews that I can help and care for. All I can do is take it one day at a time.
