I want to let you know about something amazing that has happened to me and my spouse. I will try to make the story short. A few years ago, we decided to start trying for a baby. My spouse basically hadn’t had her period, except for a few times when she was 13-14 years old. She was later diagnosed with PCOS.
We went through IVF treatments to get pregnant. It took us more than 4 years before she got pregnant, after a number of failed attempts, with mental and physical challenges. Eventually we had our baby. Overjoyed.
A little while after the baby was born, we both started an LCHF diet. We kept under 10 g carbohydrates per 100 g of food. We started to lose weight and suddenly her period started to work again!! We couldn’t believe it was true?!
After just one attempt, at the time of her second ovulation, she got pregnant again!!! Totally incredible! And suddenly we now have 2 children! And thanks to LCHF we have saved a ton of money, which a new IVF treatment would have cost us!
Please feel free to publish on the blog, however, we would like to remain anonymous.
Thanks for your posts – they are interesting!
This is not the first time that an LCHF baby comes to this world. It’s becoming quite a common story these days.
PCOS is a common hormone disorder, associated with obesity, that causes irregular periods and difficulties conceiving (and a tendency for acne and excessive hair growth). A low-carb diet is an excellent treatment. Not only may it produce weight loss and reduced symptoms from PCOS. It may also deliver the ultimate prize: a long-awaited baby.
