Hi, ladies! I'm hopping over from the Nov 2005 PR. I hope you don't mind! My husband and I are on our 6th cycle TTC #2, and I just read a very interesting article about TTC. Apparently, new research shows that eating only low-fat dairy products can have a negative affect on ovulation. Who would have thought?! It was a pretty massive study of over 18,000 women. I just thought I'd share. I know that getting pregnant isn't as easy as drinking a cup of full-fat milk, trust me, LOL... but I hope this can help someone.
Three or more daily servings of low-fat milk or its equivalent per adult "may well be deleterious for women planning to become pregnant as it would give them an 85 percent higher risk of infertility due to a lack of ovulation," commented the lead author, Jorge Chavarro, a researcher at Harvard University's School of Public Health.
By contrast, women who ate at least one serving of high-fat dairy food -- whole milk, ice cream or, better yet, a milk shake -- "reduced their risk of anovulatory infertility by more than a quarter" compared to women who ate little or no high-fat dairy.
