Fertility is regarded as a societal landmark of womanhood and youth. Thus, learning of the diagnosis of ovarian insufficiency becomes an extremely traumatic life event, more so when it occurs at your early thirties, as in the case of the author.
The impact POI (premature ovarian insufficiency) has on an individual's life satisfaction and self-esteem is as challenging as the health issues that comes with it. But still, it is not the end of life!
My Life on Pause by Dr Siobhan O'Sullivan wonderfully presents the author's own journey on her diagnosis and management of POI at a young age of thirty-one, that affected her psychological sequelae and ability to form and maintain relationships. It emphasises looking at the brighter side of life, which can be simple but special as re-uniting with friends and family.
To anyone going through it, the book affirms ‘You are not alone'.

Dr Siobhan OSullivan

I am a thirty-four-year-old junior doctor working in London. I have a background in Psychology and have always been fascinated by the physical and mental workings of the human body. It is from this standpoint that I deliver a personal account of my own health journey through a challenging and often stigmatised condition which has both physical and mental consequences on those affected.
