Then we went through a challenging season of learning to communicate to each other.

Ciiku went on to add that challenges are good for every marriage, what matters is how you handle them.

Then we went though a season of finance challenge, learning our money personality etc.

If you stick in one season or a season keeps repeating itself 

It just means as a couple you are not leaning to move on.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome: How to treat it and be able to conceive

Women who suffer from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome have a hard time conceiving.

What most people do not know is that there is hope for such women.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that affects a woman’s hormone levels. Women with PCOS produce higher-than-normal amounts of male hormones.

The cause of polycystic ovary syndrome isn’t well understood, but may involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

This hormone imbalance causes them to skip menstrual periods, making it harder to get pregnant.

The signs include

  • irregular periods or no periods at all.
  • difficulty getting pregnant (because of irregular ovulation or failure to ovulate)
  • excessive hair growth (hirsutism) – usually on the face, chest, back or buttocks.
  • weight gain.
  • thinning hair and hair loss from the head.
  • oily skin or acne

There is no cure for polycystic ovary syndrome and the goals of treatment are to manage symptoms, achieve pregnancy (if desired), and reduce the risk for complications, such as heart disease and diabetes.

Medical treatment (i.e., medications) for the condition must be continued indefinitely to control symptoms.

According to Remedy’s Health Communities here are ways to manage PCOS

  • Lose weight through a healthy dietincreased exercise, and lifestyle changes.
  • Birth control pills can be used to help regulate the menstrual cycle, balance hormone levels, and reduce acne.
  • Women with PCOS who wish to become pregnant, fertility medications, such as clomiphene citrate (Clomid, Serophene) and human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) may be helpful.
  • In-vitro fertilization (IVF) also may be used.

‘God saved my baby and I from death’ Size 8 reminisces oh her difficult pregnancy

It has also been a week where I have learnt to count my blessings: staying in hosp for almost 5days and been in a position to go to the Neo natal HDU & ICU and seeing all these tiny babies made me learn carrying a pregnancy to 38-40wks is nothing short of a miracle. Also giving birth to a healthy baby is not automatic.

Going to theatre for cs and coming out OK is also a huge blessing and for that today I say Imela papa.Ní wega fafa.. We thank God for sending a great medical team our way and ensuring they took care of us the best way possible.”
