Hi My DH and me have been ttc for 18mths with no success. I'm 39 and he's 34 and we were referred by my GP to a specialist as I was concerned my age could be a factor. I went to the first appointment on 1st June on my own and came out feeling like I was some sort of freak, all due to the attitude of the nurse specialist who runs the clinic. She made me feel like I had no right to even try and definitely no chance of getting pregnant due to my weight. She made me feel like I was worthless...just what I needed 5 weeks before my wedding! All the blood tests done were very positive and showed that I was ovulating without any help, and my DH's SA was also good. We got a letter from the nurse specialist basically saying that they would see us again after ttc for 18mths and that an appointment was scheduled for 1st Feb 2011. She also said that they would look at what else needed done but that my weight would prevent any procedures being attempted or being successful! So...8 months later, we're still TTC and I'm absolutely dreading going back to the clinic. I've tried to lose weight and have lost some weight and put it back on again etc. Overall I've only lost a stone and I know the nurse is really going to love that! Has anyone got experience of FS procedures being done when weight was an issue? Have we any chance at all? I am so tired of hoping and praying every month with no success. I've never had an issue with my weight/size, my DH met and married me like this but I've started to hate myself so much. This doesnt help though as it only makes me comfort eat and then virtually starve myself to compensate. I am crying all the time and just cant take any more.
