~Mama Inspo Monday~
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome can be hard. Having suffering since I was 16 years old I can definitely say it’s even more hard when being a mom. Just the way your body changes after childbirth is hard. A lot of times it never goes back to the same. Then having to deal with your body and PCOS at the same time. It may become more resilient to certain things that it may not have been in the past. The worst part of all not many understand the meaning of living with it. My personal experience has and is still on a roller coaster daily. You get anything from absent periods which actually takes a toll on your body due to hormonal imbalance, weight gain, weight loss, infertility, insulin resistance, depression and pms. Before pregnancy I had all but insulin resistance but now that I am actually fertile my body I have insulin resistance. It’s almost like my body thinks I’m diabetic but I’m not but yet, I have to take diabetic medication for it. Oh vey. But, I get the weight gain to go with it. The hardest part a woman with PCOS can’t lose or gain weight like the normal person. It takes an average 4x as work and time for you to achieve your goal.
In a way I am glad I have a son and even though I want a girl I hope my future child is not a girl. The main reason is the odds of your daughter ending up with PCOS is extremely high. While I was diagnosed at 16 my younger sister was not diagnosed until she was 19 years old. It is becoming known more to doctors but society isn’t as educated as they should be. Like any cause PCOS’s colors remain real which is actually my favorite color.
