I was wondering what everyone's experience was like when going to the gp/nhs for treatment when over weight?
I am 29 now and I was diagnosed at 15 haven't had a "natural" period since I was 13 or maybe 14. I am overweight now and have been for the past few years but when my periods stopped I was within the normal weight range. I feel that evert time I make an appointment with the gp to discuss my reproductive health they concentrate on the fact that I'm over weight without listening to anything else I have to say. So far everything I know and understand about pcos is mainly based off of my own research (this may be due to me being diagnosed such a long time ago).
I eat healthy, try to exercise as much as I can but my weight is not shifting and the drs don't seem to understand or support me with this.
The last time i visited the gp around a year ago about my concerns with fertility they advised me to loose weight and then go back. Recently me and hubby have really been thinking about having a baby, and we have agreed to make a joint appointment with the gp but my fear is that once again they will advise that I need to loose weight and keep trying.
Gp seems to think that loosing weight will mean that I have natural periods again, my argument is that when they stopped I was a normal weight and was a normal weight uptill maybe 5years ago?
I'm currently on metforming and folic acid
Any feedback or input about your experience and maybe how to kick start our journey to having a baby will be appreciated
Thank you for reading my post and stay strong everyone!
