Question for the ladies

Postby Tiffany38 » April 4th, 2007, 6:58 am

I have heard when doing other low-carb diets that since estrogen is stored in fat cells and when you are losing the fat cells, the estrogen is also released in large quantities so this can affect your birth control.

I asked my Dr. about this and he said he never had anyone with any problems while doing M/F and taking bc pills (i.e. getting pregnant b/c the pill was not as effective).

Does anyone have any insight to this? If I'm losing weight on M/F, am I more fertile, even though I'm on the pill?? :shock:


Thanks!

I've heard the same thing - has me running scared now that I'm really sticking to the program. I think Pashta actually conceived due to this - but I don't know if she was taking any b/c. I'm not, so that's why I'm so careful now.

WHAT! Oh that does not make me feel very good!

Well, I guess if God wants it to happen, then God wants it to happen!

i think that the lack of bc may have more to do with it. did they not teach you guys that? mike and diane need to give you guys a brief presentation.

i miss your wife. she was my start buddy. why'd you have to go and knock her up? :stickwack:

Hi there
Yup it is TRUE. If I remember correctly it is even stated in the Quick Start Book. When you lose weight, estrogen , which is stored in fat cells is released into your blood stream. This generally results in an increase in fertility. In fact my Pastor's wife is due today. They had previously used fertility treatments with no luck... but she lost 35 pounds on MF and now the baby is due today. He's going to be a big boy -- she is 5'11" tall and her brothers are all over 6'5". Pastor is 6'2".
They are sooo happy. But for those of you who would not be soooo happy. :? . make certain to keep this in mind.

You are all talking about women who got pregnant while on this diet. How about the ladies who get pregnant while dieting in general???

Obviously if they are not on birth control there is a much greater chance of pregnancy, dieting or not!

Yikes!!


Hummm...... all that estrogen getting released is kind of a scary thought -- even being on the pill. Hopefully the pill is still effective with all that estrogen secretion! But all that FAT getting released is a great thought!!

Yes - the fat leaving is an aphrodesiac too so you're hit on all fronts! :lol:

I'm sure if you are BC you will be just fine. We however WANTED another baby, and were thrilled that it happened for us.
Yes, anytime you lose weight (while being heavy) you have a greater chance of getting pregnant.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

Start Weight 326.7 ~ My short term goal will put me at 250!

Started June 19th 2008. First Mini Goal 76.7 pounds.

So happy for you guys! I would be happy having another one, but maybe wait just a few more months..... but if God has a better plan for me, then I will just be happy with what he tells me! I know lots of people that have lost weight and *poof* preggo! So cool!
