Loss of weight, infertility. Had a roux-en-y bypass. On ovablend. Suggestion?

Hello, in december 2011, I had a roux-en-y bypass. I have lost 12 stone since then (73% of my excess weight) and my BMI is now below the maximum stated by my OB/GYN for help with infertility. Is there anything I can do to further increase my weight loss, which has started to slow? Also, I have been reading about a supplement called Ovablend (formerly PCOS blend) - would this help? Would Soy Isoflavones help also? Thank you.

Thanks for your query.

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) Your BMI should return to normal for successful conception and live birth.

2) There is no evidence to suggest that these medicines you have mentioned are going to help.

3) A healthy diet and consistent weight loss should help you.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any follow up query you have.
