    Default Recommendations for Fertility Specialists in Sydney who will take overweight clients?

    So as the title suggests I am looking at some recommendations for fertility specialists in Sydney who will take overweight women?

    So to explain I have had two healthy and happy children who I carried to term problem free. I had mc this time last year and seem to be staring down the barrel of unexplained secondary infertility.

    I have been trying clomid which has been unsuccessful at the prescription of my OB.

    So what has been adding to my anxiety is, due to the fact I am overweight, I am not going to find a FS who will help me at this size. Realistically it will be a year to two to get to the ideal size... By then I think we will have given up due to age gaps.

    So I'm asking if anyone knows of a FS either by word of mouth or experience who will not just humiliate me and turn me away (my absolute biggest fear)

    I think I just need to know there is another step available to me... Even if I won't/don't need to take it.

    Also please don't give me a hard time regarding weight... I am trying to lose weight but I am one step forward two steps back at the moment... I have insulin resistance and IBS and one diet seems to exacerbate the other. Plus I am a bit fragile at the moment...

    Default recommend

    Hi - super late post, but for anyone else who might see this;
    I recommend Demeter in sydney, from what I've heard the have no age or weight limit.

    The doctors will probably speak to you about your weight etc but I'm pretty sure they won't turn you away until you've lost it. They'll start you when you're ready
