When Fertility Really Is About Your Diet
No woman wants to be told she needs to lose weight, least of all my patients who have struggled (sometimes for years) with trying to get pregnant. Whether we decide their fertility treatment will include fertility medications, IVF, IUI, or some other assisted reproductive technology, the best starting point is a healthy body -- and for many, that means coming to a more optimal weight.
This article in the Belfast Telegraph describes a rather novel approach to meeting the challenge of weight versus fertility, specifically as it relates to polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), one of the most common causes of female infertility.
Are there similar programs in the United States?
