    I'm Diabetic, and take Metformin 500mg x2 per day (Used to take 4 per day but I lost some weight and they have lowered the dose). I wasn't aware this could help with conceiving a child? How does this work?
    Goal: To reach goal weight = 9st & have a baby!





    Best of luck everyone!

    Penny, Metformin is given to PCOS'ers because most women who suffer with it also suffer with Insulin resistance as a PCOS side effect. It has also been shown to reduce testosterone in the ovaries lowering the excess hair some women have and it has also been proven to increase fertility for some due to the reduced testosterone.

    Was anyone given Clomid when they were around 93kg? My consultant refused to give it until I hit 73kg. I tried to tell him that I had read women who were heavier than me had been given Clomid and it was successful but he said that in the area I live in they had been given strict rules on when they can give Clomid

    Heya, im in the same boat, on the fertility clinic they said they cant help me at all, until ive reached bmi 30 (wich for me is 70kg) i was 98kg at the time. i do have metformin wich been upped by the endocrinologist from 500mg twice a day to 850. I also started with orlistat (might be an idea to talk to your doctor about it, its not a miracle medicine, you still need to work for it, but it does help me getting steady weightloss), and joined slimming worl, so working on getting to that 70 kg to get referred back again.

    They said that a big reason is that the heavier you are, the more riscs for complications, and they dont want to make that happen. alltough just by loosing 10%, will do wonders for your body and you might even conceive withouth clomid

    Hi Panni

    I'm on Orlistat. Lost about 7 pounds in the first couple of weeks but for the past two weeks I've not lost anything I am exercising more than I was before I started taking the tablets and I am eating better so I'm not sure what's going on. It's quite frustrating actually! I take 3 tablets of metformin each day, each tablet is 500mg. Today I have just felt really sick all day with a headache

    7 pounds is not bad at all tho. Sometimes weight loss slows down, i have weeks now and then when it slows right down and i just feel bloated and off, but then it goes back on track, agree its super frustrating tho. Are you following any weight loss plan?
    also make sure you get plenty of fluids, dont know how u you eaten the last days, but if u changed something (less sugar or less caffeine for example) that can give u headache and nausia, oor you just having an off day maybe. Hope you feel better soon tho!

    Hiya Panni. Not really following we or slimming world or anything like that. Just eating more fruit and veg and grilled chicken and fish. Had some pasta yesterday though. Still not seen any more of a loss although I don't feel sick now. I'm tempted to come off the orlistat if it isn't doing anything to be honest. Think the lack of sugar in my tea was contributing to the headache but I've gotten past that

    How are you finding everything?x

    its going well here, last two weeks been slightly slower (but still 2.5 pounds together), but have been feeling very bloated and been constipated (tmi sorry:P), im also considering going off them if i keep feeling like a balloon, got a nurse appointment next week so gonna have a chat to her and go from there. i don't know if it be worth for you trying to follow a plan from home to see if it makes difference, or u could just do a food diary, and maybe some more clever people can spot something you can improve im glad you not feeling sick anymore and ye, coming of sugar sure can be a real headache :P

    Hi ladies


    I have only just seen this thread.


    I have been under the gynae for some time, TTC for 2 years.


    My GP finally gave me clomid last night and my BMI is well over the 30. It has been made clear that IVF won't be available until I get my BMI down and I have had to show them that I am losing weight.


    I'm now taking 2 x 500mg metformin per day and I have tarted my first cycle of clomid - took my first 50mg tablet yesterday (CD3) so will see how it goes. Suffering very badly with side effects from the metformin but will keep going .


    Although I get AF naturally every 6 weeks I have not been ovulating so just hoping that clomid does the trick


    Chantelle x

    Nice of your gp to sort it out im hoping to here some good news soon
    i was devastated when i was told i have to get to bmi 30 (i was bmi 40) but now im acutally ok with it, i feel better have more energy and actually sticking to my diet, and i havent managed that since first time i started dieting more than 10 years ago.
    so at the moment im fine with waiting some months, ofc we are still trying and would be super happy if we managed on our own
