Obesity is the most common factor for much type of diseases these days. It’s an increasing common cause for the infertility in men or women. A recent talk with registered dietician has highlighted how infertility and PCOS is believe to be directly associated with obesity. A study showed that approximately 34% of young women (average age of 23 years) struggles to get pregnant just because of infertility and issues are linked to obesity.
Obesity not only makes it much more difficult to conceive, but it also exposes both the mother and the infant to all manner of risks before and after birth. Fertility can be restored if women are able to achieve weight loss. The most important reason for not getting pregnant for obesity is likely to cause insulin resistance that is linked to failure of women to produce the eggs from ovary.
The British Fertility Society recommends that, “Women who are obese and trying to get pregnant must initiate a weight reduction program and those severely overweight should not receive fertility treatment until their weight has reduced to normal. Obese men show low estrogen and low testosterone levels as well.
However, infertility may be in men or women but if you are overweight or obese, you need to make your weight normal to enjoy your parenthood.
