Getting Slim, Healthy, Happy And Positive To Overcome Infertility!
It is a well known fact that obesity is closely associated with or is one of the major causes of PCOD, miscarriages and primary and secondary infertility.
Obesity is known to cause menstrual irregularities, poor or complete absence of ovulation, lowered chances of conception, increased chances of miscarriages, increased risk of complications during pregnancy and child birth.
Research has proved that even five per cent drop in body weight of obese young women has helped them drop an average of eleven per cent of their abdominal fat, reduced their waist circumference measurements by four cm, increased their insulin sensitivity by an amazing seventy one per cent, improved the hormonal environment in their bodies, restored their regular menstruation and ovulation and improved their pregnancy rates.
In short, it means that many a young women are deprived of natural motherhood only because they are overweight or obese. Losing a small amount of weight, as little as five per cent, will help their periods become regular, ovulation to improve, dramatically improve their chances of conceiving naturally, having a safe pregnancy without miscarriages and a safe delivery and having a healthy child.
In spite of this, these ladies are first put through complex and expensive fertility therapies rather than asking them to lose weight. Only after all the fertility treatments are exhausted, they are advised to lose weight, which should have been done before fertility treatments were unleashed on them.
That is why, in actual practice, when such a young woman begins to start eating healthy and exercise, she conceives quickly even as she loses five to seven kg weight, even when she needs to lose twenty or thirty kg to slim down completely.
So if you are suffering from obesity, PCOD, miscarriages and primary or secondary infertility, lose weight by eating healthy, taking up exercise even as simple as walking and becoming happy and positive. The chances are very high that you will conceive naturally, stop having miscarriages, have a safe pregnancy and a healthy baby. Without needing any fertility treatments!
Getting slim, healthy, happy and positive is a much surer, healthier and safer way of overcoming obesity related infertility than taking fertility treatments. Doing so will also protect the expectant mother from developing hypertension, toxaemia of pregnancy and diabetes during pregnancy.
In fact, every young woman planning pregnancy should get slim, healthy, happy and positive before she gets pregnant. This will ensure a safe pregnancy and a happy and healthy duo of a mother and a child!
