21st Century Hannah's podcast
About This Show
21st Century Hannah is my passion, it is my platform. It is a podcast show, it is a series of books. 21st Century Hannah is the story of an entire segment of society that is largely ignored and misunderstood. I lived that story. I am living the story. I was tested and chose to turn my test into a testimony.
21st Century Hannah is about the woman who wanted but could not have children. Of course I invite everyone to listen. This is a message for everyone because we are all living life, though not the same life. When we realize this, our minds will open up to the realization that we can treat each other with understanding, empathy, and grace.

And I found that according to a 2015 article that was updated in 2016, Huffington Post article written by Heather Huhman, ‘Between five to 10 percent of women of childbearing age in the United States, or roughly 5 million, have PCOS. That percentage makes it one of the most common hormonal endocrine disorders in women. What's more, it also makes it the most common cause of female infertility.’ According to a Science Weekly article, 1 in 15 women worldwide suffer from PCOS. And what’s more, apparently the medical community still does not know much about the disease! What are the symptoms? Acne Weight gain/trouble losing weight Extra body hair Irregular periods And of course, trouble getting pregnant Those are just some of the symptoms. As with any of the other issues that cause childlessness, or trouble having children, all you can really
