    Hi everyone, i'm due to start taking Xenical tomorrow, DH and I are TTC and i've just found out i've got PCOS and well i already knew i was obese so i've been given Xenical to help me along , i'm a bit apprehensive and just hopeful i don't get the trots at work tomorrow as i'm working 12hr shifts at the mo lol.

    Just a bit about me, i'm 26 and been married for a yr next month and i've been overweight all of my adult life, have tried numerous diets including cambridge diet last yr, i tend to lose a few lbs and without changing anything will gain it the week after then lose it again and well it's very frustrating as you can imagine. The most i've ever lost was 2 1/2 stone on CD but as soon as i stopped that the weight just returned. I'd like to think i'm relatively active, i go swimming a few times per week and play on the wii fit and aside from the odd treat i eat a lot fat low carb diet so i'm hoping the side effects won't be too severe.

    I go back to fertility specialist in 6wks to see my weight loss so fingers crossed this will work :)

    I look forward to getting to know you all xx

    Welcome hun good luck with every thing!! You shouldnt see any side effects if you stick to no more that 5g of fat every 100gs and no more than 15g per meal. One of the girls on here did a bit of research and found if you take a tablet 10 mins b4 you eat with a big glass of water it works better. It dunno if its true but whats the harm in trying!!

    Goodluck and speak soon

    Hello Shaz:flirt2: & Welcome to the forum :flowers:

    Goodluck on Xen. Keep us posted on your progress! ;)

    Regarding your PCOS, chances are if you lose a bit of weight on your own you might get a little surprise ;) I've heard that happens!!

    All the best.
