Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a major cause of infertility, and a PCOS patient's weight is one of the prime concerns. Often, losing weight is the ticket to inducing ovulation for women who are hoping to get pregnant with PCOS. According to research into fertility with PCOS, women who have the condition and are overweight greatly increase their chances of conceiving naturally if they lose a "mere" five percent of their total body weight.
For women with PCOS, as you already know if you have it, losing weight isn't as simple as Nike's famous slogan... just do it. Losing weight and getting it to stay off for any length of time may be extremely difficult. Success may be found through a special diet for PCOS developed together with a nutritionist specializing in PCOS.
Diets that are suitable for diabetics will help you much more than ordinary weight loss diets. Exercise is another essential component to your weight loss strategy. Exercise routines should be built gradually, and with the help of a fitness professional if you have access to one. Walking for 30 minutes each day would be a great start, and you can also go to the gym for strength training and cardio work outs. If your weight loss efforts prove to be unsuccessful after a while of trying, there may also be another option for you.
Experiments with the drug Metformin have shown that lots of ladies with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome achieved weight loss success, where more natural efforts did not work out. If you are interested in Metformin for PCOS weight loss, talking to your doctor about the possibility of using this medication is a good first step. But, make sure to discuss the possible risks and side effects as well as the benefits of using Metformin to help you conceive.
