Hey everyone I am new to the forum here!
I'm 28 and have the wonderful PCOS lol!
I was diagnosed when i was 16 and have suffered with weight, no periods and body hair
Me and my husband have been ttc for a number of years now with no luck I have been on a ton of diets but just not been able to shift the sort of weight I want or need
I have booked in with a Cambridge Diet consultant and with the stuff I have been reading I am feeling optimistic
I need to get this weight of to be able to have the fertility drugs
so fingers crossed!
love to chat to anyone in the same sort of circumstance!

Thanks so much for your kind words and a glimpse of hope
Yeah I have been to the doctors there is nothing else wrong with me apart from the PCOS my husband was checked also which came up fine
I have been pregnant before I have had 5 miscarriages this was in the first few years of our marriage,
They can't give me a reason for them I do have a tilted womb though they say I'm just one of the unlucky ones
We stopped trying for a bit I just couldn't cope but we have been trying again for the past 5 years, after my losses I gained a lot of weight so I am sure that is a huge factor. The doctors have offered me clomid but I need to loose 10% of my body weight which is why I have decided to do CD, they will also stitch me and they have told me to be in a wheelchair during pregnancy to help so I'm still going I will get there x

hey hun... im sorry you are going through this. is it the fact that you're struggling to carry or to sustain pregnancy? i.e are your losses early? as it could be linked to progesterone?
I had also been trying for 5 yrs, I got diagnosed with PCO initially as my bloods showed I ovulated and hormone check was good... I had lap and dye- no problems there... I did have ovarian drilling and clomid (had a chemical pregnancy) hubby is borderline with his results and also has other problems which I am sure were the reason I wasn't getting pregnant but anyway. I began IVF route and so had to get my work up again and my blood ALL were worse, and im almost 100% this was down to me putting on weight (almost 2st between tests) so yes, I would defo try my best to lose it ( I wish I had just got on with it in the first place and hopefully avoided 5 yrs of hell) but I only lost it 3 months before my IVF (and my IVF worked) I know it says even 10% can help, but I would keep going until you are comfortable and if a surprise happens then that's great! I am not back on CD to shift pregnancy pounds and im almost back to where I started wishing you all the luck in the world. My other advice would be take your temperature as charting you temp you can learn a lot about your cycle and things you can change to help.- im no dr but done ALOT of research in my 5yrs TTC. best of luck xxxxxxx

Hey my losses were late into pregnancy the earliest was 16 weeks, this was in the first few years of my marriage but I have been unable to conceive at all for the last few years,
10% is the minimum I have been told to loose before they can give me clomid but I aim to loose a lot more not just because I can then have treatments but to ensure I am healthy for pregnancy and after
Thanks so much for your kind words I am charting also
It's a journey I hope will have a happy ending

I too had had a turbulent time with fertility & PCOS. I was diagnosed at 18 and was told that I was I likely to have children. I focused on uni & my career and fell pregnant with my son when I was 22 which came as an amazing surprise. When my son was 2 we tried again for another hold but struggled to conceive & suffered many early miscarriages. After 5 tough intense years with Metfromin & Clomid we were blessed with our daughter.
I am now in the position where I would love to have another baby however I feel very lucky to have my 2 children and am not sure that I go go through the roller coaster again.
Good luck to you on your journey, for your info I weighed 11 stone when I fell pregnant with my son and 13 stone when I fell pregnant with my daughter. With both pregnancies I felt amazing, my body felt as though it hormonally was normal and I lost 2 stone throughout the pregnancies. 4
Months after the births though all of the PCOS symptoms would return and I had put all of the weight back on xxx
