Weight Loss For Fertility

Pregnancy doesn’t always come easy to couples. The joyous journey is different for everyone and is often slowed down due to infertility. In fact, according to the CDC, 12% of women between the ages of 15 and 44 struggle with conceiving, due to a number of reasons.

Being overweight or obese is one of them.  Your body’s ideal weight depends on your BMI (body mass index), which is different for every woman and is calculated based on your height, age, and weight. Typically, a BMI within the range 19–24 is considered to be normal, 25–29 defines being overweight, and over 30 stands for obesity.

So, how does your weight affect your fertility?

It Influences Your Body’s Estrogen Levels

Your body’s adipose tissue affects the production of this hormone that’s predominantly produced by the ovaries. Individuals who’re overweight or obese have a higher percentage of adipose tissue, which results in greater than normal production of estrogen. This affects their ovulation and throws the menstruation cycle off balance, which in turn affects their chances of getting pregnant.

It Increases Your Risk of Insulin Resistance

If a person is overweight, they’re more prone to insulin imbalances. More specifically, they’re likely to have a higher insulin resistance, which refers to the body’s inability to process the request of utilizing the glucose present in the bloodstream, and instead secreting more and more insulin to counter the effects.

What this does is cause metabolic disturbances in your body, which directly affects your ovulation. What’s more, insulin resistance is also linked to the onset of PCOS, which is one of the leading causes of infertility in women.

It Causes Complications during Pregnancy

Being overweight or obese also endangers your pregnancy and can lead to several health complications. These include:

  • Gestational diabetes
  • Sleep apnea
  • Miscarriage or stillbirth
  • Wound infections and C-section complications
  • Cardiac dysfunction
  • Stressful vaginal delivery
  • Preeclampsia
  • High blood pressure or organ damage
