Victoria’s Secret model Romee Strijd has just announced her pregnancy with her boyfriend of over 10 years. She’s only 24 years old but revealed that she has struggled with something called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome that actually made her stop menstruation for over 7 years. A lot of people have pointed out that with Romee being super skinny and always on the move, her body may have not been getting the rest and nutrition it needed. Until quarantine stepped in and forced her to slow down. She went deeper into the details in her caption below. Congrats Romee!
2 years ago I got diagnosed with PCOS after not getting my period for 7 years. I was devastated because being a mom and starting a family with @laurensvleeuwen is my biggest dream.. I was so scared that I would never be able to because I got told it was harder to get babies in a natural way.. I started to research PCOS and came to the conclusion that mine was not the typical pcos.. Mine was because of my body being in fight or flight mode.. which means my body was under constant stress. I never felt mentally super stressed so it was hard te understand this, but my life consisted of travelling all the time (no biorhythm), working out every day, eating super clean (restricting foods). I think I pressured my body to much, and honestly every body is so different but I think my weight was not good for my body to function properly and couldn’t handle the constant traveling.
