Obesity is a threat to fertility

There are various reasons behind infertility that are being usually discussed. The one reason which is not paid heed to is obesity. Yes, you are reading it right; obesity is not only a threat to your basic health but it may also hamper your ability to conceive. It may be a common problem but is really a threat to human life if not taken care of. A person is said to be obese when the Body Mass Index (BMI) of the person is or above 30. Every time the number of individuals suffering from the problem of obesity goes up day by day. Also, obesity just does not occur because of one’s lifestyle but chromosomal dysfunction is also one of the reasons.

How does obesity affect fertility?

If you are overweight then the problems for you may be piled up more. When obesity hits a person it imbalances the hormones in the body and affects the ovulation cycle of a woman. It especially affects those women who are going to give birth to their first child. There are various infertility problems that can be seen in women due to obesity.

Polycystic ovaries syndrome (PCOS)occurs in every one out of five women in their reproductive age. A situation in which a cyst is developed on the ovaries, it ceases the movement of eggs and hence causing hindrance for them to reach the fallopian tubes. It makes the situation worse for the women as it can lead to problems like irregular ovulation and menstrual periods. It also hampers the accuracy of the fertility treatments that you are going through. A problem of Ovarian Hyper Stimulation Syndrome (OHSS) is also seen amongst the obese women.

Finally, the fertilized embryos are kept in the womb of the patient and pregnancy occurs.As no hormonal stimulation is involved this procedure is cost effective as compared to other fertility treatments.
