Hi everyone. I have been taking these little blue pills for nearly 5 weeks and have lost 14lbs 😃😃 so I am really pleased. I still weigh 17.9 st with a bmi of 37 ish. 

We found out last week that I'm around 5 weeks pregnant. Super happy as been trying since Xmas. I rang my Drs surgery but coundnt speak to my dr who put me on these and said they were fine to take while pregnant. I wanted to double check so ask another dr when I rang but she said catorogicly not to take them or my very high does of anti d's . (so now I feel fat and depressed) 

My dr is calling me tomorrow to discuss. All I can find is mixed opinions online and wondered if anyone on here knows anything about taking these while pregnant obviously my child means more to me than losing weight. I want to be the heatliest possible to give birth which means lowering my bmi. Also I got weighed this evening and have put on 1/2lb since not taking pills but eating the same diet. Any info will be helpful sorry for going on and on and spelling mistakes. Thank u x

    Hi Chantelle

    I fell pregnant twice on these and MC both times absolutely devastated as we had been trying for 11 years. One other woman from another board i was on also had a MC on these tablets. My gp advised having a detox off them before getting pregnant again If you want to chat please message me x

    I just want to say i am not trying to worry you or anything but i believe these tablets caused my 2 mc
