Can A PCOS Diet Plan Help Me Get Pregnant?

Can A PCOS Diet Plan Help Me Get Pregnant?

Most women with PCOS deal with being overweight and have higher BMI (body Mass index) numbers. Studies have shown that women who have higher BMI’s have a hard time getting pregnant and staying pregnant.

Richard Sherbahn MD at the Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago did a study on BMI/weight issues and IVF. What he found through his study is that women who have a higher BMI were still able to get pregnant, but at a lower percentage than those who were not obese. So how do they decide who is obese and who isn’t? A person whose BMI is 18.5 or lower is considered underweight, a person whose BMI is 25.0-29.9 is considered overweight but not obese, a person whose BMI is over 30 is obese, a person whose BMI is over 40 is considered extremely obese.

The recommendation for women who have PCOS and are trying to get pregnant whether it is naturally, with IVF or any other type of fertility help, is to try losing weight. The lower BMI count can help your cycle come back normally, which will sometimes help your body ovulate naturally. If you are going through any type of fertility treatments having a healthy BMI will help you conceive, have a healthier body for your baby, and help your chances of carrying to full term.

Women with PCOS normally have the issues of having their ovaries pushed high- away from the top of the vagina due to the extra fatty tissue that is in the pelvic area. This can keep a person from being able have eggs extracted for the IVF treatment due to the doctors not being able to see the ovary clearly as well as having to go push through different organs in the pelvic area, which can be very dangerous.

With the information that is provided it is shown that following a healthy diet and regular exercise is going to help you get pregnant when dealing with PCOS.

    What do you recommend for a woman who has a BMI of 20.5 and isn’t insulin resistant? So much of the information available for treating PCOS has to do with women who are overweight and/or insulin resistant, and I am neither. Regardless of not being insulin resistant, my doctors have had me on metformin for nearly three years, and not a single symptom has gone away. I have heard that eating the majority of calories earlier in the day may help, but again, this was a study conducted among women who were insulin resistant.
