Hi again Nik

As Bubble suggested on your other thread, it's really worth asking to see another Dr if you aren't happy with the one you have seen.

You mentioned in your other thread that your BMI is 35, this is why your Dr has asked you to lose weight I am afraid as many fertility consultants won't start treatment until your BMI is within a healthy range, normally 30 is the cut off but *some* will see you at 35.

This thread explains the relationship between weight and fertility INFO: A ROUGH GUIDE TO DIET & REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM and this one IS YOUR WEIGHT STOPPING YOU FROM HAVING A BABY? explains how we can help you. Unfortunately studies show that your chances of getting pregnant fall by 4% for every point your BMI is over 29 :sadface:

You will also need to check if you are entitled to NHS support because your DH has children already as it used to be the case that you wouldn't be, but luckily this is starting to change and in some areas the rules only apply if the female partner has children.

Have a read through this thread too

INFO: A ROUGH GUIDE TO INITIAL FERTILITY TESTS

It will give you an idea of what to expect once you get the support of a more understanding Dr!

my friend suggested me to try another forum sorry just wanted to know the basics on options of fertility treatment.

so i can prove to my doctor that i have done research and that we are serious about this, im going to try a different doctor but in case they tell me to go back to my orignal doctor i wanted to be prepared
