You wanted to know if losing weight will affect ovulation. And actually, there is a possibility that it could. But on the reverse, if a woman is overweight to the point where that's contributing to her not ovulating, losing weight might help, but it's never a good idea to lose too much weight. Fat is essentially an endocrine organ. It functions as one in the sense that it affects hormone levels in our body, and too much or too little fat (or adipose tissue) can affect hormone levels to the point where ovulation doesn't happen. If a woman is 10% below her ideal body weight, then that's when it might start affecting ovulation. And this can happen because of excessive exercise or because of nutrition deficiencies. And sometimes a woman isn't excessively exercising, but may have nutritional deficiencies because of diet restrictions or because of illness. For example, celiac disease can cause nutritional deficiencies that can affect ovulation as well. If you're having irregular periods or you have more specific questions about it, talk with your doctor who can give you more tailored information and advice. And if you have more questions in the future for me, feel free to ask them at Intermountain Moms on either our Facebook or Instagram pages, and recommend us to your friends and family too.
