INSPIRATIONAL: How Dupe And Kola Triumphed Over PCOS To Welcome Twins

Infertility can be a daunting and emotional journey for couples. Dupe and Kola’s story is a testament to the strength of love, determination and hope.

The couple, for eight long years, battled with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), a hormonal disorder that affects a woman’s reproductive system.

The account of how they overcame countless obstacles, sought medical assistance, and ultimately fulfilled their dream of becoming parents is one that is inspiring to other couples with similar challenges.

The couple’s journey began with the realisation that they were struggling to conceive. After numerous failed attempts, they decided to seek medical advice.

Following a series of tests, Dupe was diagnosed with PCOS, a condition that affects ovulation and fertility. The couple was devastated but determined not to let PCOS define their future. The initial struggle led to the discovery of a number of potential solutions.

The path to parenthood is lined with so many obstacles and understanding that PCOS is a complex hormonal disorder was what primed Dupe and Kola to realise that they needed expert guidance.

They kept worrying about questions such as: Will PCOS affect my fertility and my chances of getting pregnant? They soon realised that having PCOS did not mean that any couple would not get pregnant. While PCOS is one of the most common but treatable causes of infertility in women, most of them do get pregnant eventually.

Dupe was fully aware that every woman with PCOS has a hormonal imbalance that interferes with ovulation. She knew that a woman who does not ovulate cannot get pregnant, so this was the first step towards resolving the challenge.

She and her husband embarked on a mission to find the right medical professionals who could help them navigate the challenges of PCOS and provide the necessary treatments. They consulted with fertility specialists and gynaecologists, and explored various options to increase their chances of conceiving.

Lifestyle changes are part of the picture. Recognising that PCOS is influenced by lifestyle factors, Dupe and Kola made significant changes to their daily routines. They focused on adopting a balanced diet, incorporating exercise, and managing stress levels.

By making these lifestyle modifications, they aimed to regulate hormonal imbalances and improve their overall reproductive health. By sheer dint of their determination and consistency, hope soon appeared on the horizon for the duo in the form of assisted reproductive technology (ART).

As their journey progressed, Dupe and Kola explored assisted reproductive technologies to enhance their chances of conception.

They underwent in vitro fertilisation (IVF). Each attempt brought them closer to their dream but also tested their resilience and emotional strength. Without pretending, the couple was riding an emotional roller coaster, and navigating the ups and downs was a challenge.

The emotional toll of infertility is often underestimated. Dupe and Kola experienced a number of emotions throughout their journey. Each failed attempt’s anticipation, hope and disappointment took a toll on their mental well-being.

However, they sought solace in a support group and counselling, finding strength in the stories and experiences of others going through similar struggles.

During the IVF, mature eggs were collected from Dupe’s ovaries and fertilised by sperm from Kola in the lab. Then a procedure was done to place one or more of the fertilised eggs, called embryos, in her uterus, which is where the babies developed. The full cycle of IVF took about six weeks.

The procedure was done using Dupe’s own eggs and Kola’s sperm. Her chances of having a healthy baby using IVF depended on many factors, such as her age and the cause of infertility. The process was tedious and many of the procedures were time-consuming, financially involving and invasive.
