Weight and Fertility: Implications of obesity on assisted reproduction treatments
This is a controversial subject as research papers published recently have failed to find this relationship between weight and fertility.
Faced with other studies that have shown a strong link between being overweight and infertility: the more overweight a woman is, the less chance she will have of obtaining a pregnancy and higher the risk of obstetric complications. These complications include ovulation disorders, deficiency at the luteal phase, lower quality embryos and lower pregnancy rates and births. They also have a higher risk of developing serious medical problems during pregnancy, for example, diabetes and high blood pressure.
At Instituto Bernabeu not only are we committed to the birth of a healthy child, but also to the health of the mother during and after pregnancy. For this, a personalised treatment plan and monitoring programme are fundamental reflecting the personal characteristics and needs of each patient.
