I will never forget the day I was diagnosed and my doctor told me I have a next-to-zero chance of ever having biological kids.

I was 24 at the time, and had suffered irregular periods since age 20 or so. I had finally stopped getting a period altogether, and was having intense hot flashes, which led my primary care doctor to send me to get my hormone levels tested immediately.

Though I initially felt sad, hopeless and worthless, I have since undergone an incredible personal journey and now feel like my diagnosis has allowed me to grow personally in ways I had never imagined possible.

Please don't hesitate to ask questions about my journey. Hang in there! You can make it through this.
