Stephanie Coker, a Nigerian TV host and filmmaker, has shared her experience and challenges with Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), shedding light on how it impacted her life.

During a recent interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, Coker discussed the severity of her PCOS diagnosis, which posed a threat to her life.

“I didn’t have a period for a whole year. I didn’t bleed. PCOS made me choose IVF. Mine was very severe and my doctors told me that it was life-threatening. I even ended up in a wheelchair and I was vomiting blood,” she said.

She discussed the process of conceiving her first child, Ariella, using IVF and her subsequent unsuccessful attempt to conceive a second child through the same method.

Regrettably, the second attempt was not successful, which left her feeling disheartened.

Coker shared with Jideonwo that she experienced a strong sense of rejection and even had thoughts of ending her life, revealing that she once considered stepping in front of a moving vehicle.

“I got pregnant and had my first child on the first IVF but the second one failed and I actually wanted to stand in front of a car and let the car hit me. My daughter wants a sibling. I’m not getting back on that flight with no baby. I called my friend and told her ‘I don’t think the child liked me. It didn’t stay,” she said.

Coker is recognized for her efforts in raising awareness about PCOS and has also produced a documentary titled “Where The Heck is My Period?” which follows the daily experiences of Nigerian women dealing with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.

The film includes interviews with gynecologists, religious leaders, prominent individuals, and traditional African doctors.
