I saw the 8th doctor the other day, 8 in a stream of dr's who have said because I'm overweight there's nothing they can do despite the fact I'm not ovulating or having periods. Well this one was fab! - she's given me hope explained my blood test results and my ultrasound internal and external results to me and said I've ticked all the boxes and there's nothing wrong, she's said we have to wait for my husbands test to come back (hospital lost the first one so he now has to do it again) and go from there. She has said she can't refer me because my BMI is out of range however she's going to look into being able to give me a drug to induce ovulating and having regular periods. This all hinges on my partners sperm being fully functional though otherwise there's no point. Anyway I'm starting to look at losing weight just in case so my question is what BMI range or weight range should a 5'6 woman who is 25 be in to be able to get a fertility referral? I know it says I should in theory be 11st stone which would mean losing 12st straight off the bat but I'm looking for confirmation. Just before anyone starts about diet and excersise; I'm 25 I regularly forget to eat breakfast and sometimes lunch, I eat healthily when I remember (I don't get hunger feelings) I love veg, can't eat bread and I'm lactose intolerant so no cheese no dairy. I don't use oil, I drink only herbal teas, the occasional green tea and plenty of water. I'm not diabetic I don't eat crisps. Chocolate I eat rarely and usually when it's a "craving" but even then I don't go mad. I don't like cake or pies and we don't eat takeaways it's always home cooked food. I have 3 horses and ride regularly as well as mucking out and moving around large 5ft round hay bales in winter and bashing in fence posts. Guess my question is how the hell am I 23 stone and how can I change my body to get pregnant?!?
Any help/advice appreciated. I've tried SW, and didn't get on with it as I can't eat as much pasta and potato as I like because it feels wrong and has a detrimental effect on my tummy!!
