    Long time going and no luck

    Hello,
    I've posted a while ago and i have been at a stand still. I've been doing le since November and had our first attempt in February, Since then, we had an attempt in April, but unfortunately I have a history of loosing ovulation and loosing too much weight. Over the last few weeks, I've got what appeared to be positive opk 3 different times over 2 weeks so we attempted but I don't know what's happening to my body. I haven't had a real period since end of April, very minor spotting end of May. I know I'm considered underweight now but I feel like I am eating more than enough. I was in this situation a few years ago before seeking fertility treatment. Not sure if we should take a break...what I can do. I've added the eggs, full fat dairy, 3rd meal, salmon or beef once a week. Confused and frustrated....any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

    Sure! I used to write everything down and a typical day was about 1800 to 2000 calories, 50-65 grams of fat, 40-50 grams of protein. A typical day had coffee with a drop of milk... about a 14 hour fast before eating first meal. A lot of fruits.. usually an apple with peanut butter, whole milk yogurt with berries, salad, rice cakes. I would eat a "meal of snacks". Carrots with hummus, crackers, fruit snacks, popcorn, pretzels.... dinners are a lot of veggies...squash or eggplant, more salad, veggie burgers with low carb wrap. Sometimes chicken or turkey... salmon or beef once a week. Usually 4 eggs over the weekend. A second coffee with Splenda..or with sweetener if eating with a meal. Wine every night. I feel like I'm eating a lot of carbs but my bmi has dropped to about 18. I definitely have cheats a lot.

    Up calories to 2000-2200 and 50-60 g protein and fat, no less than that.

    Are you counting the small amounts of protein and fat in fruit and veg, and anything in low carb veg? If so, don't.

    I do not want you to lose an OUNCE more. Eat however much it takes to keep weight on even if you have to exceed 2200 cals. If you can't get enough calories with the 50-60 g, up this in 5 g increments until you're able to get the cals in.

    Thanks for the responses! I dropped fiber a while ago..just eat high fiber foods sometimes. I do not count anything in the fruit or vegetables except if I bake them with oil. I used to put cinnamon in my coffee but haven't in months. Not sure what mysotol is but don't take that. I just take folic acid.
    I have been eating more.. more cheats... my doctor does think I have a mild case of pcos due to Cysts and now irregular cycles, but I just can't pass up those occasional sweets. Not sure what else to do at this point. Feeling like it's not meant to be.

    Well, having your cycle disrupted from PCOS and from low weight are really two different things so it may very well be you NEED those occasional sweets to keep weight on.

    Have you talked to your doc about possibly doing Clomid or Femara? And has your husband ever had a sperm analysis?
