Recently, I’ve been doing a survey on polycysytic ovary syndrome in women. Pcos an endocrine disorder is reported to be the major cause of infertility in women and the aim of the survey is to find out its prevalence in Nigeria and if possible raise awareness about it. This survey entails my visiting ante natal and fertility clinics. Since I’m using Enugu state as a case study I’ve been asking people to help me with addresses of clinics I can visit and this is where the problem lies.
The typical response I get are
Are you pregnant?
Do you want to freeze your eggs?
Why are you going to a fertility clinic?
One dude was gracious enough to tell me he has a fertility clinic in his house and I’m like huh???
Yesterday, I went to an ante natal clinic to see a doctor. Immediately I approached the nurse and told her I wanted to see the doctor she asked that I get a card and when I tried explaining she just snapped and said “ madam, pregnant women take cards before they see the doctor” . I had to look at myself very well to be sure I’m the one she’s referring to.
I love pregnancy even though I’ve never been pregnant and I think it’s a beautiful experience. Hence, I’m interested in the study. So phavourites, have you ever heard of the term PCOS? Do you know anyone suffering from it? Do you think its prevalence in Nigeria ? Help!!!! And oh, I’m doing a second survey on dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation) but that will be much later.
Sorry for going awol on you guys .
