Welcome to the board! I'm sorry to hear you are dealing with a double edged sword of PCOS and LOR.
I am afraid of having that LOR issue myself. When I was diagnosed with PCOS 6 years ago my LH # was at a 7 or something like that and I was told that some dr's and clinics won't treat infertility if your LH is over 12 or something like that. Makes me nervous now that I'm finally in a long term relationship and ready to ttc.
I REALLY need to take some of the extra weight off though, so I can get some infertility treatments (if my LH isn't too high). I had a consultation and was told that I need to get my bmi "closer to 40".
I am fairly new to SP, I signed up years ago and never used it. Finally decided it was time to really commit to myself instead of my job.
I have been diagnosed with PCOS and LOR (Low ovarian reserve) which is a really sharp double edged sword since the traditional PCOS treatment worsens the LOR, so we are currently on hiatus from fertility treatments while I prepare for my wedding next August and get my body to a better size to respond to the treatments.
I was so pleased to find a team with team members that will understand the trails and tribulations that go along with fertility treatments while trying to lose weight. (Not an easy thing to do.)
I look forward to getting to know people and hopefully to be able to support others along their journeys (weight loss and fertility).
