Underweight A Problem

Has anyone ever been told they need to gain weight? I am 5'5" and when I started TTC I weighed 115 and now I have dropped to 110 and can not seem to gain any more weight. I  have been on Clomid rounds and Femara  and now might start injections because nothing is working. I have PCOS and do not have periods.

I'm underweight too, since having my son.
My friends and family tell me I need to gain weight all the time, I'm 5'6" and weigh 103, I eat all the time I just cant gain weight! I'm going to try these protein shakes my company sells because I was told it can be used as a weight gainer! But I feel like if you have healthy eating habits that your body is where it "wants" to be! Good luck!! Baby Dust your way!♥

You should try to gain a little weight if your doctor is saying to. Just like being overweight can affect your fertility, being underweight can just as much
