    hello everyone,

    another newbie here, my name is Rachel and im 29yrs old and will starting the cambridge diet end of this month.
    i suffer from severe pcos and we have been trying to concieve for 9years with no success, we have tried 7 rounds of clomid [fertility drug] to which my body didnt respond.
    the hospital blames it all on my weight and ive tried everything from ww to xenical to no avail so im hoping the CD will be my last hope.
    cant wait to get to know everyone and get started.
    love
    Rachel xx

    hi rachel
    welcome, i started cd yesterday after reading loads on this site and preparing myself mentally, my bestfriend had pcos and was overweight tried for a baby for 8 yrs went down the ivf route, eventualy it was her dramatic weight loss that kick started her hormones the right way and now she has 4 kids, i hope it sorts things out for you, research does show the more weight you gain the less fertile you become because of the oestrogen testosterone inbalance, did you dr also recommend metformin for pcos?

    good luck x
