Although it feels like it, young people aren’t completely invincible. Our healthy bodies are prone to a variety of hidden diseases that can ultimately change our lives. A netizen named Queennie Saragpon experienced a harrowing situation when she was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. In just the blink of an eye, her aspirations on becoming a mother were threatened.
It turns out that this young woman has been experiencing irregular menstruations. Queennie thought nothing of it because she was convinced that missing your period for three months was completely normal. Sadly, these were the signs that a bigger health problem was already forming.

“As a women, kailangan conscious tayo sa nangyayare sa body natin lalo na sa reproductive system. I haven’t had my period for almost 3months but I am not pregnant and I don’t have plans to get pregnant anytime, diploma at kasal muna bago baby. Akala ko normal lang mag skip ng months sa menstruation pero hindi pala”
Queennie went to an OB-GYN. Her OB-GYN advised her to have an ultrasound. Upon viewing the results, the young woman found out that she had Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. According to her post, this condition greatly affects a woman’s hormones.
“Women with polycytic ovary produce higher-than-normal amounts of male hormones. This hormone imbalance causes them to skip menstrual periods and makes it harder for them to get pregnant. It is a group of symptoms that affects the ovaries and ovulation.”

At first was it difficult for Queennie to accept that there was a possibility that she may never give birth. But as long as she has her faith and belief in God, things are not as hopeless as they seem. Later on he even encouraged everyone to have their health checked. The assurance that your body is okay is well worth the expenses.
