Nigerian TV personality Stephanie Coker Aderinokun has released a documentary to raise awareness of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).
PCOS is a hormonal disorder that causes enlarged ovaries with small cysts at the outer edges.
Coker’s documentary titled “ Where The Heck Is My Period“ is directed by Michael ‘AMA Psalmist’ Akinrogunde.
It premiered at the 2022 Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF) which held from November 6 to 12.
The project features interviews with culturally diverse Nigerian women living with PCOS. It also highlights the struggles that they face.
The documentary will include interviews with gynecologists, pastors, public figures, and native African doctors to shed light on the disorder.
Speaking on her reasons for producing the documentary, Coker disclosed that she hopes to “educate people”. She said she was also diagnosed with the syndrome at age 16.
“I wanted to shed more light and educate people about this incurable disorder and hopefully help young girls going through the same issues,” she said.
