Why Kenyan Netherlands-based artiste Wendy Kimani has given up on getting a second child



Wendy Kimani, a Kenyan artist living in the Netherlands, has related her experience with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and the difficulties she has had conceiving as a result of the condition.

A hormonal condition called PCO results in enlarged ovaries with small cysts on the margins.

In order to support anyone going through a similar experience, the artist and content creator has been sharing her path on social media.

PCOS Encouragement POST Alert!

I found this ultrasound pic from when we were trying to conceive for a second baby( by the way, we decided no more kids so we stopped.)

But before we decided, we tried for like 6 months, at that point my period had just disappeared the month before so thought it was a random month.

NOPE! my unhealthy corona habits had finally caught up with me and my period was gone. We tried.

Unsuccessfully! 😞😞so I went to the obgyn and we started on hormones Provera and letrozole.”

Wendy says the wait was not easy but it was worth it.


“Every week I had to go back for an ultrasound to check for mature follicles that would then create an egg and every week I was told they didn’t grow big enough. It was intrusive and stressful and really reminded me of how I conceived my miracle PCOS baby Taji( without all that stress). 🌟Swipe left to see how big he’s gotten🥰🙏🏾”


So I decided to do the same thing I did to reverse my symptoms and get back to a healthy baby-having place.:

  1. Cleaned up my diet, I decided to do the Keto diet to see how fast I could balance my hormones and reverse my symptoms. i also did intermittent fasting.


  1. I walked every day for 30 min. This is the best Workout for PCOS if you ask me.


  1. I bought inositol to help with insulin sensitivity, evening primrose which is great for reducing inflammation, Vitamin D, and magnesium.


  1. Pushed myself to be consistent. In 2 months my period was back. In 4 months I had lost 7KGs (whaaaat!!!)


If you are feeling overwhelmed and not sure where to start ….Start here. YOU GOT THIS!


Treatments for PCOs include; Birth control pills to regularize periods, a medication called metformin to prevent diabetes, statins to control high cholesterol, hormones to increase fertility, and procedures to remove excess hair.
