sorry to here of your troubles, i can empathise with you.

we have been ttc since jan 03, i suffered 2 mc, before being diagnosed with pcos - with every symptom possible. i then had a 3rd mc. i have seen cons and took metformin for a while but couldnt get along with them. in the 6 months i saw cons i lost 3 kgs and put 1 back on.but because i gained some weight cons have said there is nothing more they can do until i lose weight. i have about 8 to lose!

it dies seem unfair, but it has made me more determined to do it without there help.

hi there

at my first gyne appointment i was also told the same go back home and loose weight and then they might start treatment i was 18 at the time i found it very difficult to loose weight the more i lost the more i gained for some reason after speaking to my GP about this i was told that it was a known fact with people who have pcos. another 6/7 months later i went back for my second gyne appointment and once again i wasn't given any treatment because i hadn't lost any weight i was very frustrated and p***d  a few months later i went back a third time they actually gave me metformin but they never worked for me not far off 4 years i was taking these then finally i had the guts to go back and get a second opinion from a diffrent gyne he actually understood me he new i was finding it very difficult to loose weight  at this time he gave me clomid and all he said to me was with being overweight and starting clomid there is a slight chance that my blood pressure would rise and that was it so it took them from the age of 18 till i was 22 to give me clomid wich worked first time.

maybe if your unhappy with your gyne you might be better going back and getting a second opinion from someone else they might be more helpfull and tell you diffrent
