Today, Ali talks to Bailey, who is in her mid-20s, and who says, "I don't see a lot of women out there who are going through exactly what I'm going through." A few years ago, Bailey was diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve and POI. And although she's not actively trying to conceive right now, she is going through fertility preservation. She and her husband want to have a family, and doctors have told her that she'll likely go through menopause when she's about 30, so she has so far gone through four rounds of IVF to try and freeze as many healthy embryos as possible. Bailey talks about night sweats, her hair falling out in clumps, feeling like her hormones were out of whack--and how it felt to get her rare diagnosis. She also talks about feeling isolated, how this has affected her relationship and her sex life, and what happened when she asked her twin sister if she would possibly donate her eggs.
