PCOS Advice For A Woman Having Fertility Treatment

This is a reply to a woman who communicated with me recently about problems she is having with her fertility treatment… I’ll add her question.


Hello doctor… its really nice information…

Actually i have the same PCOS problem…

… my doctor has given me clomide and 1 injection also, but i had a period after that… so she called me again and did normal scanning and repeated the same thing.

Is she going in a correct way – my weight is 66 kg and height is 153.7 cm

Do u think i will get pregnant… i am getting afraid day-by-day. I’m doing so much exercise also but still my weight is the same.

What should i do???

Please help me…


Thank you for your question.

You are on the correct treatment with Clomiphene Citrate and it appears you are ovulating as you had a period, but unfortunately did not conceive with that treatment cycle.

I understand you are feeling frightened by not getting pregnant but sometimes Clomid may take 6 treatment cycles … that means 6 months.

Your doctor is doing everything right and monitoring you with scans checking the follicle growth, so hang in there.

Your body mass index (BMI) is 27.94 so almost 28.
I know it can be hard sometimes loosing that weight. Try going on a low carbohydrate high protein diet, because if you could lose more weight… that means dropping from 66kg to 59kg… your chances of pregnancy could be quicker.

Shortly I will be having a fertility diet book on my site to help women like yourself.

I wish you all the best
