sarfalv Posted March 8, 2014 Share Posted March 8, 2014 Hi everyone, My keen use of google tells me this is a topic that has been taken up before, but none of the threads I read were specific to my situation so I thought I would post individually to see if anyone could help me clarify what's going on. I'm currently on day 22 of my first whole 30. I'm feeling great, my skin has cleared up, and I have lots of energy. All good things. The bad thing is that I don't seem to be ovulating. I've been TTC for almost a year now without luck. I decided to try Whole30 as a general cleanse and with the hope that maybe it would aid me and hubs in conceiving. Now, I'm 20 days into my cycle and no signs of ovulating-- typically I have a 30-33 cycle with a 16 day LP. My bbt are way out of whack (staying waaaay too high) and for the last 10 days my OPKs were negative. My CM has also been inconsistent, rather than a general progression to EWCM. All my blood work pre-Whole30 showed normal thyroid and hormone functions, so I'm concerned that Whole30 has actually thrown me out of whack. I'm still getting enough good carbs because I love fruit, squash, and sweet potatoes (always have), so I don't think that's the problem. Basically, I have no idea what is going on. Is it possible that Whole30 is interfering with ovulation and fertility? Can it actually mess up your hormones? If anyone else has had a similar situation, I'd really appreciate the insight! At this point, I'm ready to throw in the towel just so that I start ovulating again! Link to comment
