    I think that the lowering of your BMI and the cutting out of junk food / alcohol etc can kick start your fertility. Haven't heard specifically but I guess those side effects alone can help your chances... hth. x

    hmmm i guess your right, then again every individual is different, it all depends on how your own body works and reacts to this diet.

    When you say "any" does that include Condoms? I guess as we drop the weight, our chances are conceiving are greater and also this could affect the hormonal balances of things such as the pill, but it can't affect condom's as they are not influenced by these things. So, as much as they can be a pain, if you are not wanting to get pregnant, I would suggest this.

    I am hoping that losing this weight will give me a greater chance of getting pregnant, but I want to be a healthy weight before I fall pregnant x

    sorry bunnyg, this does not include the condom method, like you said i dont think this will effect it anyhow but i am concerned about the rest like the pill, coil implants etc...., i wish you luck in your weight loss and then in conceiving right at the end of this diet:)

    I didnt hear anything about conceiving while on birth control, but yes there are claims that CD does increase the chances of conceiving. My CDC said its partially due to the drop in weight combined with the combination of vitamins and minerals in the packs.

    apparently when fat breaks down it increases levels of either estrogen or ostrogen or something ( not sure which hormone it is ) but this boosts ur fertility levels and as we know NO contreception is 100% foolproof ( except for the just say no method )

    like you say "foolproof" and i certainly ain't a fool with my pill - i take it correctly and follow my instructions to the note..

    i will be more than annoyed if i now find out that it might not be working due to cd...

    cd does not affect the pill and the term "foolproof" is a figure of speech i was not calling anyone a fool!

    check ur pill packed it will tell you its 99% effective, condoms i think are 96% so most of the time there is no problems but 1 or 2 people will get caught out and thats everone not just cd users

    I reckon that I'm significantly less fertile than normal at the moment. I certainly have fewer physical signs of fertility (don't want to go into too much detail, for fear of putting folks off their lunch ;)!) than usual.
