DH and O were TTC for ten months when I finally asked for a consultation with my dr. I had been tracking my ovulation for three months and was fairly certain I wasn't ovulating, which is a common problem with women who have a higher BMI. My doctor never said I wasn't getting pregnant because of my weight, but he did acknowledge it could be a contirbuting factor. Then he asked how aggressive I wanted to be about getting pregnant and the next week I started my first round of clomid to jump start my ovulation. After two cycles, we have a baby on the way.
One of the things I decided when I went to talk to him... it was my first apppointment with him... was that if he blamed me for being overweight I was gone. But all he did was acknowledge it and move on from their. No judgement, no lectures. He asked how I felt about my weight, if I was prone to emotion eating and what I wanted to do about that. Overall, I was thrilled when I left the office. I am excited to have him as my dr, even though it is the first time I have had a male OB/GYN.
Some dr just don't have a goo bed side manner... don't let what your doctor said get to you... "Bigger" women have babies all the time... always have, or the human race wouldn't have continued after the Renessance (sp). Oh yes, let's not forget that underweight women face the same issues that overweight women face.
