I Want a Baby - Losing Weight May Help?

by Milini
(Trinidad)

After reading the above stories I am inspired to lose the weight. I am from the Caribbean.

At the age of eighteen I too was diagnosed with hormonal imbalance. I was worried ever since.

Recently I got married and my husband and I are trying for a baby.

I love to hear success stories of people who actually have polycystic ovaries and now have a baby. That is so wonderful to hear.

Sometimes I think it is so unfair that some women have to go through this.

Anyways I have realized that losing weight is a big factor here.

In losing weight as I have read above really contributes to balancing our hormones.

I truly think myself that medications are not all. Yes indeed medication is part of it but losing weight is more, and we have to stop this problem from continuing. I intend to lose the weight.

Thank you everyone for sharing. I hope to be pregnant soon.

And of course people we must remember that god is our everything and with him anything in this world is possible. But we too must fight for what we want in life and god will give us the strength and blessings to do so.

Editor's comments: Hi Milini.

It's not just losing weight. It's losing FAT weight. It's the fat weight, not the muscle weight, that is making your PCOS worse.

That's why exercise is so important. It's an excellent way to lose fat weight and gain muscle mass at the same time. Keep in mind that your fat is burned in your muscle cells. So, the more active your muscle cells are, and the more of them that you have, the easier it is for you to lose fat weight.

The Caribbean is a great place to be active. Why not go swimming every day? Or take a walk or bicycle ride? Or play volleyball or some other sport? Have fun in the sun. Actually, sun exposure is beneficial because it helps your body create vitamin D. You need vitamin D to help control PCOS.

Since you live in the Caribbean, you may be exposed to a lot of refined carbohydrates and starches. Reduce the starches and increase the vegetables. Try to have at least five servings of vegetables every day. You probably have fish locally available. Eat more fresh fish.

Do these things and see what happens.

Women who suffer from polycystic ovary syndrome can greatly improve their chances of becoming pregnant by losing fat weight, even if the loss is at little as 5% or 10%.

And, as you say, having faith is also important. Faith that you can live the life of your dreams is very important.
