Clomid with BMI over 35?

Postby lilcammy89 » Tue Jul 21, 2015 10:36 am

Hi ladies

I was just wondering if anyone had been precribed clomid with a BMI over 35? I know it is down to the doctor and the area you live in but just wondered ?

Hi Lilcammy

I have just been prescribed Clomid this week, my BMI is 39.9.

I'm in Bucks (High Wycombe) and was told that my BMI needed to be below 40 to qualify for clomid and when I went for this week's appointment, I got it at 39.9!

I do know, though, that the chances of it working are better when your BMI is lower, so although we've got it we're going to wait a couple of months before we start. (Also, we're going on separate holidays next month, and the timing will probably work out all wrong, knowing our luck!!).

Where abouts are you? Have you been told what your BMI needs to be?

Life may not be the party you expect, but now you're here, you may as well dance!
