ADVOCACY Jaime King, producer, actress, model, wife and mother, talks about how perseverance prevailed in the face of her struggles with fertility.
At age 28, Jaime King was diagnosed with endometriosis, adenomyosis and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). This, along with an ectopic pregnancy, lead to her first of several miscarriages.
“That’s when my journey really began,” says Jaime.
PMS. Cramps. Periods. Tampons versus pads. It’s all still very much taboo. But why? How can women, young women and young girls truly know when something isn’t right with their body? As Jaime puts it, “If you’re having very painful, heavy periods that are debilitating, even while you’re ovulating, that’s not normal and you should get it checked out immediately.”
The sooner the diagnosis, the better. Waiting, or ignoring the symptoms, can cause serious and sometimes irreparable damage.
Finding the right doctor
According to Dr. Randy Harris, MD, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, endometriosis and PCOS can mimic other symptoms or aggravate symptoms of other diseases and can lead to misdiagnosis for years.
For instance, teens might complain of gastrointestinal problems and might be diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). But upon further investigation, their symptoms get worse before and/or during their periods. With this added history and further medical workups, it may end up being endometriosis on the bowel or appendix, mimicking IBS. So these teens are treated for IBS when they should be treated by a gynecologist instead.
If I’m not mistaken, this is the last update/news I had to upload. I wan’t to apologize to all of you for the lack of post these past months. At the end of the 2016 I was SUPER bussy with all my university exams… I failed a few of them so in a week I had the make up exams, another exams and the final examinations in 10 days, no kidding. I was exhausted. Then I went on vacations and here I am now. I’ll do my best to keep the site updated everyday. Thank you for visiting us!
