I would like to aggressively lose weight this next month before ttc or doing IVF. I would like to know if it would hurt my chances of a successful natural pregnancy. would it mess up my cycle or hormones.. i am about 40 lbs overwieght (5'2" 169lbs currently) and need to drop what i can asap because i will need steroids and intralipids and i don't want to add weight from the treatment and pregnancy on top of what i need to lose already. i also have low AMH and elevated FSH

no while you are not actually trying to concieve you can workout , the wieght loss can only help. Of course I always ask you to be sure you need prednisone and ILs.
