    Hiya, I wouldn't think it'd affect anything, in fact losing weight can help conception as you prob know. You could ask your gp just to double check, best of luck with everything! :)

    Your doctor will not prescribe them if there is any danger of that and as Lynn says you will have more luck conceiving if you are carrying less weight.

    Hi

    I know of a lady who went onto Xenical to lose weight because she was trying for a baby, she lost 3 stone and now has a one year old. She has PCOS and had been trying for a long time so I don't think you have anything to worry about. Good luck with everything. xx

    hi,
    ive been on xencial for 3 weeks now, and prior to this my periods had stopped, last year i only had 2!! and we have been wanting to start ttc for our 2nd baby, and ive lost 12lb altogether so far and guess what.. i came on yesterday :D so the weight was the problem so hoping they will return to normal now, and when i spoke to the doc about xencial/fertility she said it can only aid the chances of getting pregnant as your chances of getting pregnant are higher the less weight u carry.
    good luck on your jounery and sending lots of baby dust ..
    xx
