According to Juliana, she bled for four months, living on drugs and applying all sorts of medication to her skin until she exercised her faith and everything changed.
She said,Â âI had polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and I had Psoriasis. I was bleeding every day for four months, and my period did not stop. The way it started was that my period did not come for over a year.
âSometimes I used like two packs of sanitary towels every day. There was a day when I was at my sisterâs house and I slept. I did not want her to know that I was bleeding nonstop. I woke up and the whole bed was full of blood. I had just changed my pad before going to sleep.
âMy sister advised me that I had to go for a check-up immediately. But I was scared about what the doctors would tell me. We went to see a gynaecologist. When we were having the tests, I was hoping it was not going to be cancer. Eventually, when the test came out it was PCOS.
âI woke up one day and I said âEnough is enoughâ. I was tired of swallowing drugs and putting all sorts of ointment on my skin. I prayed and exercised my faith and everything changed.
