This is very heart wrenching when a lady has to hear sentences against the things that she is not responsible for. Do you know what these sentences are?
“You cannot be a mother and totally useless for your whole life”.
“You are not pretty because of these hairy face”.
There are many others that are extremely painful for a woman. Seriously, it is not in someone’s hand to control these issues. Ladies! You really need to know that what PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) is and how you can treat it and change your life.
