I have just been diagnosed today with PCOS I am so worried I will never ever conceive as I don't want IVF. I was 18st 8lb and now am 17st and still continuing to lose weight. Will this help? What else can I do having a baby is very important to me
Expert:  Dr. P. Jyoti replied 13 days ago.

You are in late proliferative phase.

During this your endometrium should be around 5 to 11 mm.

You are having thinned out endometrium.

You have to consult your Gynae for this, you will need hormonal therapy to correct this.

Hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.

Gynae won't help cos of my age
Expert:  Dr. P. Jyoti replied 12 days ago.

Yes at this age it will be very difficult to get pregnant. Your endometrium also is too thin. You should approach a fertility clinic. They can help you.

What options would be available to me in a fertility clinic I don't want IVF would something like clomid help? Also can this get any better with weight loss
