There are many girls who face fertility problems in their early 20s. It's a terrible feeling to suffer in this phase of life when the majority of girls are doing their favorite job or post-graduation. While Chlamydia screening is mandatory for every sexually active woman to prevent STD, laparoscopy, on the other hand, is essential for women suffering from severe endometriosis.
Fertility problems in the early 20s are not the end of life but it's actually a new beginning with an accelerated pace if you give proper consideration to yourself.
This story is of an anonymous woman who suffered from fertility problems in her early 20s but never gave up in life.

When she stopped to take those pills, she ended up putting a lot of weight. She also tried Advil, codeine, exercise, massage, acupuncture etc. but nothing worked.
When the girls of her similar age group were enjoying $ex, she was busy covering the blemishes on her skin caused due to pain and sensitivity of her first sexual experience.
She suffered from endometriosis and has even experienced the feeling of getting infertile at the tender age. Anyhow she saved herself from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and still succeeded in managing her fertility to some extent.
Just after completing the university degree, she realized the need to get into a relationship with someone who can understand and support her. Her dreams were shattered due to diagnosis of two diseases that would soon make her infertile. Still, she got into a relationship with a 21-year-old guy of her college.
She began to realize that her boyfriend is not the right match for her but still the guy stood by her side at the time of need. He wanted to marry her as soon as her health gets better but that never happened.
Soon she reached in her mid-20s and her outlook for life changed completely.
Her mom was 40 at the time of her birth. So, she felt she has sufficient time to deal with her fertility issues. However, she doesn't feel that this is the right choice for every woman.
She started having $ex with strangers without worrying about the future. She still feels that those 5 years were the incredible years of her life.
She fell in love with one of her close buddies in her late twenties. She informed him about her difficult periods and PCOS as fertility issues would be associated with both of their lives for the long term. Her partner listened and empathized with her issues. He said, "OK, how do we make sure your fertility fits in with my plans? How can I help with the pain?" He even researched about her fertility issues on the internet.
As they were from different countries, they got married to formalize their relationship quickly. The lady explained about PCOS, "Well, as a friend and fellow sufferer said to me a few years back. It's like this disease doesn't want me to have sex. The hormonal havoc it wreaks on your system can give you an entirely unpredictable libido. Also, the most common visible symptoms are weight gain, skin breakouts, excess body hair, and thinning head hair." She recently had her second laparoscopy for endometriosis in December to preserve her fertility. After undergoing two surgeries and years of pain, she will be soon planning to have babies.
