Quoting Tiger Lily ♥:" My sister was diagnosed with PCOS, lost 50 pounds by getting a new job, and was pregnant within months. ... [snip!] ... will not only benefit you when it comes to getting pregnant, but in many other ways. I wish you luck on your journey, lady!!"
The last part is especially true! I have PCOS, most people fail to realize it's a endocrinological disorder; it doesn't just effect fertility. With PCOS you have an increased risk for developing endometrium cancer (lining of the uterus). You're at a very high risk for diabetes, heart attack, stroke, high cholesterol and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. With PCOS it's very important to watch you eat, exercise and stay in a normal weight range. All of my doctors have recommended a low carb/GI lifestyle. Also having PCOS and being overweight increases your risk of GD.
I had to take Clomid and do IUI to get pregnant with my daughter. I gained a lot of weight during my pregnancy. I ended up losing over 75lbs after she was born, my cycles regulated itself and I O'ed on my own every cycle. however, the weight loss didn't help with some of my other PCOS symptoms.
Good luck & baby dust! If you need to talk or have any questions about PCOS PM me.
