Don't shoot the messenger, but this was on the news health story last night. Not enough info included though.
A study suggests a diet rich in ice cream and other high-fat dairy foods may lower the risk of one type of infertility.
But some doctors say it sounds too good to be true and probably is.
Researchers found that women who ate two or more low-fat dairy products a day were nearly twice as likely to have trouble conceiving because of lack of ovulation than women who ate less than one serving of such foods a week.
Conversely, women who ate at least one fatty dairy food a day were 27 percent less likely to have this problem.
The findings are from the well-known Nurses Health Study at the Harvard School of Public Health and are published in a European journal.
Even the researchers say women shouldn't make too much of the results, which are based on reports of what women said they ate over many years, not a scientific experiment where specific factors can be studied in isolation.
I dont know if it is true or not, but seems like there may be some connection. This is just my personal opinion. Infertility rate is becoming more common these days. It could be because there a lot of low fat foods out there and mostly woman are into it. Just a thought.
I can only think that the women who eat low fat ice cream may not ovulate as much because they are underweight and don't ovulate because of that?? They try to make the news sound interesting to get your attention.
Dairy foods contribute to higher prolactin levels. Too high of prolactin levels and you cannot concieve (conceive). I had been ttc for 8 years and stopped dairy for a year prior to IVF. Failed IVF b/c I have endo so estrogen is a no no. Anyways, now I am p/g using only a natural embryo transfer with no meds. I still have to keep the dairy to a near minimum or I will have endo pain even in p/g. Dairy is a serious factor in infertility!
really dairy foods makes ur prolactin levels high? wow i dint know that i do have high prolactin and im currently taking dostinex twice a week for it i dint know how i had this but that could be true i do eat a lot of cheese i dont abuse of it but i have plenty...dostinex has been working great for me in fact the first time my levels were 42 and 1 month after they went down to 8..and just this week i found out im ~ pregnant ~ so im behond excitement!!
Congratalations!! Are you going to con't the dostinex in pregnancy? Prolactin levels rise during pregnancy so if you can't con't the med and find yourself feeling crappy then perhaps lower your dairy consumption. I am in the prolacton battle being 10w3d p/g. I had it lowered before conception but have eaten cheese b/c I get so hungry. L glutamine can lower prolactin in p/g but only light amounts (just powder) b/c it will be a strong detox. The prolactin war rages on. I have seen you on a p/g forum (35 and over??). anyway keep me posted!
Thank you. Congrats to you too!! my nurse told me today to continue with the dostinex i only take like half of a pill twice a week...im not sure if they will keep me on it for a while but for now ill do what im told to!! lol this is my first time ever being preg. i also take meftormin due to my PCOS but they say met its not harmful for the baby, i think at one point they put me off dostinex...what can i use? glutamine? what is that? and where do i find it? im sorry you said u seen me in the p/g forum over 35?? i dont belive so maybe like once by mistake i dk lol good question...im only 27 lol maybe it was when i first joined this forum i had no idea what i was doing...ahhaa let me know ok keep me posted!!
