PCOS can be a very personal thing and it can often feel like you’re on your own with it, but it is important that you remember that more people than you think have it. So I thought I would share with you a few people in the media who also have PCOS and have struggled through the symptoms.

Harry, Lola and I are so happy to share our news. After having IVF to conceive Lola people used to say to me you'll probably fall pregnant naturally next time. I wondered how it would ever be that simple after all the difficulties we have previously faced. I never believed we would be lucky enough, but whilst writing Dare to Dream this little miracle happened. I want to give others hope that amazing things can happen 🌟
So there you have it. Six women who suffer from PCOS who are in the media and we see nearly everyday on Instagram and other social media. It’s nice to know that other people are going through the same things you are. If know of anyone else that I’ve missed off the list, leave a comment and let me know.
