    Hi Windy

    I am really overweight, about 250lb, and I have today just started my second round of clomid, last month I was on 50mg clomid and I definatly O'd, and I asked my dr before i got the clomid did i have to loose weight (have been trying anyway) he said that to have clomid you don't have to loose weight at all, it is just personal prefrence, he had no problems with me being overweight and on clomid at all.
    I am staying on 50mg for the next 2 months until i go back and see the dr, the only thing he told me to keep in mind and try and loose a bit of weight for was if eventually i need ovarian drilling but that will be about a year off if nothing happens with just clomid.
    Don't worry, it obviously works (well it did for me), go for it and see what happens,

    Good luck

    Windy ~ I was over 200lbs and conceived twins on my first 50mg clomid dosage. It is very doable, it just depends if your body responds to it or not. Good luck!

    I was close to 300 when I got pregnant with my twins. Don't worry about it ~ just prepare for the emotional rollercoster that CAN go along with Clomid.

    I was around 230 when I took clomid 100mgs , granted I had lost a lot of weight before it but I dont think it contributed that much.
    Glucophage and having my thyroid under control helped alot I thought. I got pg the first month, Good luck
    Pcos controlled with diet and glucophage

    BTW, I did not conceive my twins on Clomid. In fact I didn't ovulate but one month. I stopped Clomid and 2 months later, I started Actos 30mg and was pregnant that month! Actos = for me!

    Default Brilliant info

    Thanks so much i know the posts were done a while ago. But they have given me the boost i need to go back to my docs and tell them i want to go on it. I am roughley 18stone and have been told that my weight is a problem. I am currently taking Metformin and no luck, i have been on it for 4 months and am lucky if i have a period once thats it. And with a familly history of infertility i am worried i will not fall pregnant. I know im only 24 but my sister is 27 and had an ovary removed at 23 and now shes facing having the other removed. So fingers crossed she helps me.

    Hi Windrush28
    my doc told me they would not give me Clomid until i had my BMI down to under 30 I went back 2 months later and had lost some weight but still not under 30 she gave me the prescription with no comments of weight in my case I think she just wanted to see i would put the effort in. We gave up ttc not long after although we are now trying again. Apparently research has been done which shows that clomid is less effective in overweight women but it does work, I was about 16 stone and deffinatley ov'd.
    Good luck. xXx
