Hi Lilly

My name is Natasha, im 29 years old, married for 3.5 years, ttc 2.5 years.....
Got diagnosed when I was 18 with PCOS and gynae scared me and shouted at me for being overweight (weight 60kgs back then) and been too scared to go to a gynae since. I weight a whopping 106 kgs last year and have been battling to lose the weight, I have dropped to 97kgs....its a difficult road.....

Hi Tasha and welcome.

The road of weight loss is never an easy one but with the right attitude and support you will get there slowly. I weighed about 95 at my wedding 5 years ago (due to hormonal imbalances) and am now almost at 80. It's been a long road but I know I'm getting there slowly and am just happy with every little bit I loose.

I also had a very bad experience with a gynae (female) who listened to my history and told me (without any tests or bloods etc) that I'd never be able to have kids. I was very put off and to some extents believed her but I have been seeing major changes with medication I am on and now believe that even though I'm not pregnant yet I am a lot closer to being pregnant than I was a year ago and that one day soon I'll be able to shout my BFP (Big Fat Positive) from the mountain tops.

All the best with your journey and I hope you feel welcome here and will find the support and encouragement here that you need.

Hey Tasha

Welcome to the forum!!!!

As for the weight issue, flip them all the bird. I weighed 57kg my entire life, until I left school.

Fell pregnant in 2008 weighing in at a sturdy 87kg's, and weighing about 100 now. Trying to lose it all, but I always say I'll be thin in heaven so I might enjoy my life as it is now.


for you

Hi Tasha and WELCOME.

As a fellow PCOS sufferer I feel your pain.

I was diagnosed just over 3 years ago and have been ttc for a few months longer than that.

The constant weight battle is a very frustrating one (I am battling too) and it seems to be such a vicious circle. The more weight goes on the more it affects the PCOS yet the PCOS and insulin affect the weight.

I have been with a lovely dietician for a while now and I did very well with her on a low GI diet. Lost almost 13kgs but worked very hard to get there. We had a bit of a rough year last year when my brother in law was tragically killed and as a result of that, excessive cortisol levels and hormone imabalances, I have managed to pick up a little and became stuck. The weight just stopped coming off no matter what I did. The frustration is unbearable.

I am now still with a dietician but trying a different approach and so far I am down 2.4kgs in 3 weeks so am quite happy with that so far. I take it one day at a time and even if I only lose 200g I am happy as anything is better than nothing.

Unfortunately it is the most frustrating road I have ever had to travel as I am so so sick and tired of people looking at me and probably sniggering behind their backs "who ate all the pies"... when I know damn well that I eat well and it is not a case of being a bad eater. Okay, I do admit I could exercise more but in this day and age, who the hell has the time?

I have also had VERY bad experiences with Gynae's and PCOS. I actually think it is out of their league for some!

BUT the Dr that both B-Bat and I are with now made a point of telling me very loud and clear that PCOS does not = infertility! I trust him with my life and I know that he is right. I just have to work harder for what I want!

So, all I can say is you have come to the right place. There are quite a few PCOS suffers here and ladies that have been through horrendous ordeals BUT having said that a lot of them are in the mommy lounge now and have their babies. The support is here and the proof that you must never give up believing. Keep the faith and hope alive and know that you will hold your baby in your arms in time.

Good luck and I look forward to getting to know you better!
