First time
Hi everyone, How do you do guys. I hope you find my post at your best. I just joined this forum first time on the recommendation of my friend. Actually, I and my husband are trying to conceive now. I want to share that I was so overweighted before. Now I lost almost all of my weight but I am still worried. The reason for me getting worried is that I took supplements before. I took them regularly. Now I just want to know that what could we possibly do. Should I continue taking those supplements and try to conceive or should I just leave them and then ttc. I just want this knowledge please help me. Please help me.

Hi Rachel! How are you holding up dear? You're very warmly welcomed here. I'm glad you did join it...I'm glad you did. Well, losing weight is really a huge issue for someone. I know how it feels. Well, have you been diagnosed with anything relative to infertility? I mean have you visited an Obstetrician? So, he will guide you better than what's going on with you. I hope it's nothing's huge with you. Stay blessed! Keep me updated with it...I'd love to get along and help...

hello, my dear TTC, it is great to learn about such motivating stories. You are one of those people who are not ready to give up. You are ready to take up the challenge. You are not a loser. Your courage and the spirit are worth praising. I feel that you are facing the problems due to the extra weight. Sometimes the excessive weight does not let you have the normal reproductive functions. Supplements do not matter much in the weight gain. If you have any confusion about continuing the supplements it is better to consult your doctor. If she has some suggestion then you need to follow them. Supplements or no supplements should not be decided by you. trying to conceive, had excessive weight, taking supplements should I give up

It is good to see that you care about yourself. You took the initiative to lose the weight. It will really help in conceiving. Well for the supplements id say that they are harmless. I mean you can continue taking them. You can even stop taking them.It depends on you. I will advise you see a doctor. Were you using them with a prescription before?If yes then consult again. If no then obviously immediately see a doctor. He will guide you better.Other than that there is no need to take the stress. You will conceive soon.Best of luck and loads of wishes your way.

Hi Emily, Thanks a lot dear. I also thought that supplements are harmless. I consulted with a doctor. She refused them in no time. She strictly forbid the supplements for me. So, I don't think I could use that. Thanks anyway for the help dear.

Hey Rachel? Why don't you try conceiving through any assisted procedure? Don't be devastated or feel low about yourself! You can still become a mother. Stay strong! Write back to me. I'll try helping you soon. I'm also infertile like you. Trying via an IVF this year! So, yeah!

Hello. How do you do? Well, losing weight is really a good initiative. I hope you find your rainbow soon. The supplements, as long as they are not interfering in your pregnancy you can continue taking them. However, you still should seek a doctor's advice on this. Don't overthink about it. Stay blessed.

Hi there. How are you doing? I hope you are doing good. I think its nothing to be worried about. If you think it is something of a concern then ask your health specialist about it. I am sure they will be able to help you. TTC is tough. You can overthink small matters in this time easily.

I dont think they can be harmful. They are just supplements. Still, you should not take any risk. Talk to your doctor. Ask him if you can continue using them. It is always better to be safe. Good luck with TTC.

No, the supplements are not the way to go. You should stop taking them, It is going to create many problems for you. Surely, you don't want that. Everything is going to be alright for you. You can jog and walk as much as you can. That is the best way to reduce your weight. You should not worry about that. Just keep doing it. You'll be fine.

If you took supplements before, you should stop taking them now. If you are trying to conceive, you should consult your doctor first. And regarding the supplements, not every supplement can be good for your health. Specially if a woman is pregnant it can create a lot of problems. There are many other ways you can maintain your weight. Either you can start exercising. Your first priority should be your health and the health of your child. You should not take the supplements. Even if you plan on doing so, go and talk to your doctor. I am sure he/she will have something to say. And they can guide you whether the supplements will be good for you or not. And apart from all of this. You should not worry about your weight, women tend to loose or even gain weight during pregnancy. Your priority should be to stay healthy and stay happy. I hope you find a good solution to your problem. Best of luck.

Welcome to the forum Hope you get to see much hope and positivity here. You did a great job by losing weight. Because this is one of the thing that hurdle in conceiving. I have hared about so many women's having complications on conceiving as they were overweight. So staying fit and healthy should be your first priority. As far as the question for the supplement is concerned. Have you asked any of the doctors over this thing? You must consult your doctor before coming up to any of the decision. And I am so sure that considering your doctor's advice would be of much benefit to you. Hope to see you conceiving soon. And I wish you a very short visit to forums. Baby dust!!

I am fine. Thanks for asking. How are you doing? I think you must consider it. Losing weight will increase your chance of conceiving. You may try going for a walk daily. You can also try yoga at home. It is quiet helpful in losing weight. I wish you luck in future. Stay strong and healthy.

Hey Rihana. I hope things are going well for you. I'm glad that you managed to lose alot of weight. I'm really proud of you for that. Taking supplements can be a tad harmful for the body so i would not recommend taking them if you are trying to concieve. They can claim to have good effects but sometimes the bad outweighs the good. Make sure to take regular visits to your clinic. An experienced doctor should be able to help you more with your situation. Keep trying and eventually everything is gonna work out for you guys. I hope you guys are able to find happiness. Good luck!

Hello, Rihana. How are you? I hope you're alright. TTC is always an exciting time. Some would call it nerves. Both aren't wrong. It's both, actually. It was a desperate time. I was constantly hoping for good news. It finally happened when I got pregnant. Sadly my happiness lasted a few weeks as I miscarried. I was really sad. I found my solution with a clinic in Ukraine through surrogacy, recently. I'm undergoing the process. I hope you choose to go for it, good luck!

Hello Rihana, How you feeling? So sorry to hear about your problem. This takes a lot from a woman. But you are a brave woman. You didn't lose your hope that is quite inspiring for us. My friend had gone through the same. First, she suffered conceiving complications right after 2years of marriage. And then her first pregnancy ended in MC. She was so depressed and heartbroken. So we searched for another option. She has decided to opt for surrogacy. We searched for the best clinic Biotexcom. She contacted them and going to visit their open session. They have arranged it in London in the middle of August to answer the queries of people related to infertility and its solutions.

"To my perceptions, I believe that supplements are never been that much effective. But yes alternatives are. And for this particular case, I would ask you to consult your doctor. I could just hope that you would be having prescribed medicines. Unless all of such things could make a negative impact on your TTC days. I would pray that might not be the case. One more thing always consults the doctors or clinics whom you may trust. As if I am kept hearing about all the false news and the frauds that some of the clinics are doing with the infertile individuals. Stay safe. Stay happy. "

Dear Rihanna! I think you should stop taking supplements and make your body to take some rest and let it come to the normal functioning. After that, you can try to conceive. On the other hand, you can also adopt some alternate methods like surrogacy or IVF. Both the methods are really helpful. If you want to have any of it then the only thing that I would like to make you aware is to be careful from some fake clinics. Some clinics like Lotus are looting people in this field. They do not have any concern about someone's life. So try to find the best clinic for yourself. I hope it your dreams will come true one day.

Yes, you have taken the right decision to join this forum. My friend, I will suggest your surrogacy. So there is no need to take pills to conceive. The most important thing is that you should choose the best clinic for your treatment. There is the worst clinic like Lotus. I have read many bad reviews about this clinic on different forums. They are worst in dealing with infertility issues. There is no need to waste your money and time on such clinic. There is a good clinic in Eastern Europe. They are best in dealing with surrogacy. They are wonderfully doing their job. Their services are less expensive. You should go there. Wish you good luck with that. Baby dust to you

Welcome, Rihana. I hope you are doing fine. Tell me first why did you take supplements? Don't you know, continuous intake of these supplements can cause trouble in conceiving? Please stop taking them otherwise you will have to face consequences. Don't lose heart and keep trying. Maybe you get pregnant. But if you are having trouble while conceiving then you should go for the alternatives. Consult with the doctor and do whatever the doctor says. May God bless you with a baby soon. My prayers are with you. Good luck.

Hi Rihana! I am glad to hear that you care about your health and want to grow your family. Taking supplements and TTC is not good at the same time. You should quit taking them. If I talk about my situation I was also facing PCOS due to overweight. The good thing is that now I am in the good state of health and lost my weight. Good luck to you too.
