    Same. But probably because I'm very overweight!

    I was told if you lose 10% of your body weight cycles return to normal. I've done that..

    I've read and heard that even 5% is enough for a change

    Default TTC and weight loss

    @Mamasupial @ProudMumma34I've lost well over 10% and, while I feel better, it's not enough. I am lucky enough that my cycles aren't as long as others but it's not what it used to be. And I don't think weight solves everything.

    @Mamasupial I'm still trying to lose more weight cos there's a lot more to go. And it'll be another 2 months before I get tests done agin so we will know then how much of a difference it makes.

    Exactly - it's not just the weight factor. Losing weight will help, but apparently a ketogenic diet also has a positive effect on reducing insulin resistance & testosterone.

    Low impact is better than nothing. And it's not too much to overwhelm you. Xx
    It doesn't feel too far away especially when my twins turn 4 on the 16th! Feels like it's going too fast for me lol.

    At my gyno appt she said, that losing weight will sometime have no effect, it's all dependent on the person. But she did say that for some people, losing 5% will make a huge difference.

    I know for me, my cycle can be greatly affected by my weight. When I was really underweight back in my late teens, I didn't have a period for about 6-7 months. and I find I get back to semi-regular when my BMI is in the lower part of "overweight". But like i said, that's just me.

    Yes i definitely agree. Although when i got pregnant i was 20kgs lighter from my current weight i certainly didn't have regular cycles. Believe it or not i had one cycle before i got pregnant then i didn't have a period for one whole year! I went to a diff gp i was seeing at the time who didn't seem concerned about it and said that it's ok not to have one. I saw her at 22 weeks dor something and she was this skinny minny....she was trying to get pregnant too...she actually said to me "you give me hope"
