    I am, well its part of it other health issues to like arthritis in feet and knees need me to lose weight too, mostly the weight went on trying to conceive it was such an emotional merri-go-round

    After many years of trying (12) and using fertility treatments I finally got pregnant but unfortunately I had a miscarriage at 14 weeks early last year it was devastating and of course I piled on over 2 stone since then and because of arthritis my quality of life has really been stunted so just to walk up stairs without agony I have to turn this around and hopefully losing the weight will help me have a better chance to have a healthy pregnacy.

    anyone else?

    Hi girls

    I am doing CD in the hope of falling pregnant. Me and my husband have been trying now for 2 years without any success what so ever so im hoping that loosing weight will make me have more regular cycles and help with conceiving for the first time.
    I am here for anyone who wants to chat, stress or moan about there ups and downs cos i know only too well how hard it is to be disappointed every months

    i am also hoping to conceive with the help of CD.
    We have been trying for 11 years now with no success.
    I have been diagnosed with borderline PCOS and my periods started to slow down about 8 years ago. i now havent had a period for 1 year and 5 months :(.
    We were actively trying for a long time but now, well, the hope is dieing off but I still hold on to the fact that there is a much higher chance of ovulating and becoming pregnant when i have lost a fait amount of weight (fingers crossed).

    Thanks girls,

    I dont have pcos, we are unexplained although I do have a touch of endo which they say is not causing an obstruction and I was a very healthy weight when we started out on our journey but 12 years have taken their toll. We've done IVF 5 times and the 3 time it worked but it ended up in m/c. When we were having treatments my clinic had a strick BMI under 30 policy but after the last one I found the pressure too much

    We have switched clinics this time around, the clinic we are with now dont have any restrictions with BMI for treatment but I know from my own experience that the less I weighed doing a cycle the better the responses were and so before we go again in the Autum/Winter I want to get to a healthy BMI

    Best of luck to all TTC that you get your dreams some day

    Hx
