Episode 011 - Treating PCOS with Hormone Therapy & Fertility Treatments (w/ Sheka)
Sheka thought that her chances of getting pregnant at 40 naturally were pretty good, however, after taking the Clomid Challenge she found out that she had PCOS and was not ovulating (despite having regular monthly periods). Upon finding that out, Sheka and her husband immediately elected for her to do fertility treatments and hormone therapy. They also opted to do Intrauterine Fertilization to increase their chances of conceiving even more. After 2 attempts of suffering a blighted ovum and miscarriage, Sheka became pregnant within 6 months of hormone therapy and talks in depth about her pregnancy, morning sickness, delivery, hiring a Doula after the birth of her daughter and overcoming the “Baby Blues” and Postpartum Depression. Tune in to this episode for Sheka’s full Pregnancy after 40 Journey and Story.
