Stephanie Coker Aderinokun’s Documentary “Where the Heck is My Period?” Sparks Conversation On PCOS

Media personality, Stephanie Coker Aderinokun is raising awareness of the devastating effect of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) with the release of her documentary, “Where the Heck is My Period?”.

This documentary is now showing on Amazon Prime as its first licensed documentary in Nigeria. “Where the Heck is My Period?” marks Aderinokun’s debut as a film producer.

Driven by a mission to increase awareness, empower women, and amplify the voices of those affected, Stephanie Coker Aderinokun alongside other African women from different socioeconomic backgrounds bravely open up about their own experiences with PCOS, offering a raw and honest portrayal of the struggles they have faced.

Aderinokun had this to say about the process of filming and producing the documentary.

“I’ve always been passionate about women’s health especially women living with PCOS but I wanted them to feel seen, loved, understood and supported. Taking the big step of being vulnerable enough to share my story publicly was a big step I was willing to take. Although nerve wracking. I’m glad I did it. 

This documentary is very dear to my heart and I decided to pour myself into this, not just by telling my story but also being a major part of the filmmaking process. Filming and producing this documentary was very emotional for me. Everytime I heard the stories of the women, I always felt a wave of emotions. While it was hard listening to their struggles, I’m happy I could find women who are willing to be vulnerable, be their authentic selves and support each other by telling our stories. 

I hope everyone that watches this documentary feels our heart in this. We put in so much. I hope every woman living with PCOS watches this and feels loved, seen and heard.”
