New doctor = new plan

E and I went for our follow up appointment this week to discuss our test results. My PCOS screening showed that my insulin was really high and then he said that I need to exercise and lose weight. It was actually great for E to hear that though because now that he hears it from someone else’s mouth, he’ll actually make me stick to things.

I asked the doctor what foods he suggests that I avoid. That was a big mistake… So foods I should avoid are any refined carbohydrates and especially potatoes. If you know me, you’ll know that I cannot live without potatoes. That’s going to be such a tough one. He also said that if I have complex carbs, that I should have the most minimal amounts possible. Pretty much no carbs.

He also told me to cut the sugar. No Pop and no juices. He said that if I really wanted juice or pop, I can have one at Christmas as a treat. Oh boy…

As E says, I need to just think of it as I am doing this for our future son or daughter.

Meds wise, I am switching from Clomid, Femara and Menopur to just the Gonal F pen. That pen just looks horrid and I felt like I wanted to pass out when she showed that to me. The plan is that I’m to use the pen everyday from day 3 until I ovulate. Hyperventilating now… But things will be ok. I hope…

    Have you tried glucophage for the insulin and weight loss? My fertility guy prescribed it for me for these reasons. Best of luck

      He actually did. I’m on glumetza for 14 days once per day and then twice per day after that. My last doctor prescribed it too but I didn’t see a difference. Maybe the twice per day might do it 🙂
