This 23-year-old girl sought medical help 30 times in just two years before being diagnosed with the disease Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

Chelsea, from Birmingham, was later told she had endometriosis, which is where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus begins to grow in other places, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes.

Because of the severity of her case, she was told her fertility was ‘none’.

Chelsea and her partner Troy Hemus, 28, have had to accept the fact that they may never have children together.

She said: ‘I was heartbroken and devastated when the doctor said it would be a miracle if I conceived.

“I’ve always wanted to be a mother and it feels like my dream has been taken away.

“Thankfully, my supportive partner, Troy, who is also a personal trainer, has kept me motivated and on track.

“Eating a healthy diet and taking vitamins along with exercise has helped me deal with the terrifying news.”

But in a shocking turn of events, while awaiting keyhole surgery to remove endometriosis, Chelsea received life-changing news.

It was revealed she was pregnant and in June 2021 she became the mother of Iziah Hemus, now 5 weeks old.

Chelsea always suffered from severe cramps and erratic periods that kept her often bedridden.

After two years of seeing many doctors, she decided to go private and spend £200 on a specialist.

She was then diagnosed with endometriosis.

This condition is very uncomfortable, because each month, this tissue growing outside of the uterus responds to the monthly menstrual cycle in the same way that the lining of the uterus does.

The lining builds up, then breaks down and bleeds.

In August 2020, Chelsea was rushed to the hospital and laid down for a month as she needed constant pain relief.

“I can have two periods a month and then four days without a period,” she explains.

“It was a nightmare. I was taken to the hospital by ambulance and held as I needed for round-the-clock pain relief.

“I really couldn’t move. This is terrible. ”

In September 2020, Chelsea was registered for keyhole surgery called laparoscopy to remove patches of endometriosis tissue.

I was shocked when the nurse came back and said ‘congratulations’. I couldn’t believe it – I thought I couldn’t have children.

Chelsea said she was excited for the surgery but also worried because her doctor had told her they might have to remove a fallopian tube.

As part of the surgery, she had to take a pregnancy test beforehand.

She said: “They asked me to take a pregnancy test to be sure but I never thought it would come back positive.

“I was shocked when the nurse came back and said ‘congratulations.’

“I couldn’t believe it – I thought I couldn’t have children. I called Troy to pick me up and he was completely shocked.”

Chelsea had a smooth pregnancy as the symptoms did not persist for 9 months.

She is sharing her story to raise awareness about Endometrial optimism.

She said: “Troy and I cannot imagine our lives without Iziah now, he is our world.

“I am living proof that miracles do come true.”

Chelsea says she was initially disheartened about her diagnosis but found a way to embrace herself.

“I think a healthy diet, regular exercise and speaking out have helped me a lot,” she said.

“Depression has an effect on your body, so I urge people living with this predicament to talk to someone – even if it’s me.

“I’m going to be signed up for a laparoscopy soon and I don’t care if they have to remove some of my reproductive organs because I already have everything I need.”

What are the symptoms?

  • Painful or heavy menstrual periods
