Hello all, not a 'new' user by any means just stopped coming on a few years ago as never got replies, seems now revamped its much busier...
So a little about me, I am 25, married with an almost 3 year old (december birthday) have been TTC over 2 and a half years for baby number 2, had all tests recently, bloods hsg etc nothing no reason as to why my useless body isn't working, limbo a lovely place to be. Was told I would struggle to conceive November 2011 came off the pill, allowed two months for body to become regular aaaand pregnant in Feb 2012, Yup just like that. Hence the frustration. Currently AF is torturing me late but pretty sure she is coming, the 30 tests I have done are big fat negative yeah right you are not having any more get lost negatives. Not sure if I even WANT to carry on after all this and to top it off had a doctors appointment yesterday that I left feeling absolute shite as she spoke to me like something off your shoe (my husband witnessed this and was gobsmacked) Droning on and on about my weight!! I have lost 12lb in the past few months after joining slimming world and I am trying my best but having PCOS is another yeah right weight loss no way. Feeling like chalking shite on the whole lot taking the pill so it absolutely CANNOT happen and burning every baby item I own!

Thanks for reading to the bottom if you have made it this far.

Now I think I'm going to sulk for a while, writing it down helps a little.

Don't know if this helps but I have pcos and am overweight plus am ten years older than you.

First child conceived after two and a half years.
Second child conceived after two and a half minutes (!!)
Third child conceived after 6 months

Was over 100kg for all of these

Sorry the Dr spoke to you like that. It's the last thing you need.

PCOS can impact on lots of aspects of egg quality and ovulation. Weight isn't the be all and end all of it at all and your Dr should have known better. The type of diet people on is more important than focusing on weight loss so eating low GI diet and maybe taking regular metformin for a few months can kick start the body into ovulating more regularly.
