In part 2 of our talk with Alana Shlagbaum, who is not a therapist, doctor or any kind of health expert but a preschool teacher from New Jersey, Matana shares her own personal story with Alana, of how miscarriage and living with chronic bleeding prevented her from becoming pregnant.

After having her first son, Matana went on birth control. During that time, she also lived with  chronic feminine bleeding which got worse after her third child. Due to Jewish law, she was unable to physically be with her husband unless she had stopped bleeding and undergone ritual bathing, but her bleeding did not stop. Additionally, her mind and body did not respond well to the strong hormones she was taking.

She wanted to travel to a family event without bleeding, so she doubled my birth control that weekend, which put her into a full panic attack that kick-started her massive depression. After that, she dealt with several miscarriages and finally found an alternative hormonal birth control. She unknowingly got pregnant for her last time in my forties, Thank God without any issues, despite her intense fear. It had been a journey full of many tears, hard work, and much growth.

Many women suffer through challenges like these silently and alone. Both Matana and Alana want you to know that you’re not alone. There are other people out there with similar struggles and they both both made it through. There is real hope.
