I think if you want to get further NHS help like IVF, you must lose weight, otherwise your only option would be to pay for further treatment. You may see an improvement in your progesterone if you lost weight too. Good Luck!x


I had a BMI of 34.4 in June, now down to 32.4 but they said I need to be down to at least 31 before they'll do a laparoscopy and then down to a normal BMI before IVF. Sucks eh but I do feel better in myself already! Good luck, I know how you're feeling! The specialist seems to think that the weight loss will kick start everything naturally anyway... I'm not so sure but wait and see I guess!
