Fertility and Weight Loss

  Carrying excessive weight can increase your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and even certain cancers.  However, for young women who would like to start a family, the chances of falling pregnant are definitely reduced if they are overweight. 

That is why women struggling to fall pregnant are often recommended to lose weight in order to increase their chances of success, however a recent study carried out in Sydney has reinforced the importance of this.  It seems that obese women who undergo fertility treatment – such as IVF – have a greater success rate if they lose weight at the same time.  In fact, their chances of success are three times greater than those obese women who do not lose weight.

Over the years, The Natural Way has helped many women lose weight in order to help them fall pregnant.  One such client is Helen Patrinos from Brisbane.  Helen says, “I weighed 90kg and having a baby was something I really wanted, but I had found out I had polycystic ovaries.  My doctor recommended I lose weight and that might help me with falling pregnant.”

As a result, Helen joined The Natural Way and found that her weight just ‘dropped off’ – in fact, when she was only 6kg from her goal, she found out some wonderful news – she was pregnant!  Helen says, “I had a wonderful little baby boy but put on 20kg.  I could not stay at this weight, so I went back to The Natural Way and got back on program to reach my goal.”

Helen lost a total of 23kg to achieve her goal and is a proud mum of her lovely son Nikolas.  She says, “Before I lost my weight I hated how I looked, I had no energy…I became depressed and ashamed of myself that I would avoid going out of my house.  It’s amazing how much more you get out of life when you are not obese and unhealthy.”
