So myself & my husband went to see our GP the other day following the shocking news that my husband has a very low sperm count. (should be 39 million and his is 14million). Anyway We knew my weight would be an issue with a BMI of 52 and knew that we wouldn't get referred and felt like we had no hope. With me no Ovulating and his low sperm count its not even like we can continue to try!
Anyway our Dr is amazing, she said regardless of the issue of my weight she put us forward for our referral to the fertility clinic at the hospital. She did say my weight will be a factor but they also may refuse us based on our ages. Im 25 and my husband is 22. I cant fathom how they can refuse us based on age considering we've been trying for 4 years and not gotten anywhere and also because we both have problems which wont right themselves! The Dr has flat out told me my not ovulating is not linked to my weight at all and despite being overweight I am perfectly healthy!
I am constantly being healthy an trying to lose weight and to help me along she's prescribed me Orlistat, anyone had any experience with this at all?
Im glad that at least we have an amazing Dr behind us, very straight talking and we got a referral against all the odds. MY BMI subsequently is now down to 48
