    Google gluten and fertility. There is a link between cutting out gluten and increased fertility. I've had two girlfriends who cut out gluten from their diets while TTC and it did wonders for them. They both now have babies.

    Even for my DH and I, we tried to get pregnant when first married and we just got nowhere. Then 2+ years ago DH cut out gluten from his diet as he was told he had an intolerance. After a year of his being gluten free, and me eating less of it because of our shared meals, I got pregnant. That first pregnancy ended in miscarriage but the second one stuck and we have a beautiful healthy baby boy who's now almost 8 months old.

    Gluten is an interesting one isn't it @Kat 74. I am sure there is something to women changing their diet and getting pregnant and it doesn't surprise me that gluten is a culprit. I have an appointment with a naturopath on Monday to come up with an eating plan that is focused on improving fertility. Will see what she comes up with and will let you know. In the meantime, off to google I go!

    Default Fertility "Diet"

    After seeing the fertility specialist who said I had slightly polysisic ovaries I by chance finally got in to see my specialist (for a chronic illness-wait of 12 months!). Had an IgG food sensitivities test and the specialist said my ovary issue would resolve itself within a few months of eating to these results. Three months later I was pregnant with no help from the fertility specialist-she never even told me I could have overcome that problem.
    For the record the naturopath I was also seeing told me to stay off gluten and it turns out many of the gluten free alternatives were actually my problem foods (corn, rye) so while the naturopath knows about general healthy eating they don't do scientific tests specific to you to back up what they are sprouting
