I was wondering if any people had fertility problems and got pregnant after doing paleo. If you did, how long did it take after starting the diet?
Tati, my wife and I managed to get a perfect little caveman! Less than a year after I got healthy on paleo-modeled nutrition and lifestyle we ended a 17 year streak of infertility. NOT any sort of scientific method to any of this, but as I ate clean paleo, my wife was dragged into fewer grains, less sugar, less veggie/seed oils etc. She is not on board 100%, but I suspect my dietary changes that rubbed off on her had to help the matter.
I have PCOS. I was diagnosed in May 2010 and put on Metformin and my OBGYN recommended what basically turned out to be a Paleo-style diet. I had immediate fertility improvements. I don't know what to attribute to the medication and what to the diet, but I'd been charting my BBT to track ovulation for over 6 months and had not ovulated since going off birth control 9 months before. My next full cycle after starting Paleo, I started ovulating on my own. I've started settling down into 28-30 day ovulatory cycles after spending most my life with wildly unpredictable, annovulatory cycles.
Robb Wolf has commented in many podcasts that paleo eaters in his gym seem to be getting pregnant easily. You should be better off for sure. If you still have problems then talking to the doc is probably a good choice if you haven't done so already.
Me and my husband tried for ten years I have never taken birth control and have seen fertility drs even took fertility drug clomid I have never had a positive pregnancy test we went paleo in the summer of 2012 and am currently pregnant with a due date of oct 2013
