I'm 31 years old and was diagnosed with pcos at 22 years old. I'm overweight with a bmi of 42 although I'm very active and go gym 3 to 4 times a week always on the go and actually quite fit considering my size. I have been told I can't be helped with fertility from my hospital because of my size but I was wondering could you maybe help me and how much it would cost, this is my last chance in my eyes of ever having my own child, if you could help me i would be truly grateful thanks
