went to the doctors yesterday as we have been ttc for nearly 2 years now through advice from you guys on mn now the first GP was lovely did blood tests and swob's had a really good chat to me, but you guys said it wasn't enough so went back yesterday my usual nice GP was on holiday, wanted to see her too as she had discussed referring me to fertility clinic, but had to see another one as she wasn't back for 2 weeks, and what did i get from this one IT COULD BE YOUR WEIGHT and you have a bacterial infection but that won't make you infertile heres some antibiotics come back for more blood tests day 1 of your cycle and day 21 which ive just finished a week ago so have to wait again now for it to come around, but i beat her to the weight side of it cos i joined slimmers world 2 week ago and was 10 pound lighter her reply was well your on the right track knew i should have waited for my GP to come back now i feel like saying stuff it....sad

You can't give up, you have been slogging away for two years.

the tests she has ordered on day 1 and 21 are very helpful though and probably the first thing a fertility clinci will do so its not really delaying it.

She is right - you are on the right track - donlt think she;s being negative she probably thinks she;s being encouraging!

i had the consultant at the regional fertility unit in belfast give off about my weight,they do seem to think it hampers pcos or concieving.sad

there is a clear and proven link between weigth and pCOS and conceiving. Trust me I know for bitter experience. WIsh someone had nagged me about it much much younger.

cheers girls bar go get lipo suction it's not going to come of that easy i know i have quite a bit to lose so just guess it's a waiting game and you know what by time i lose what i need to lose they'll probably be telling me my age is against me then.....x

even the process of losing weight improves your fertility whilst you are losing. Also relatively smallish weight loss can have a significant effect - its not about getting to Kate MOss sized.

A 10lb loss in 2 weeks is fantastic! Well done!

Drs aren't always the first in the queue for charm or tact..... or she might have been trying to encourage you.smile Keep sticking at the diet whilst you wait for the next set of bloods as it can only help matters. Fingers crossed the blood tests are helpful and that you get some answers soon.
