The relationship between weight and fertility is real. Body mass index is a mathematical calculation: weight in kg divided by height (in meters) squared.
For example: if weight is 60kg, height is 150cm, BMI equals 60/(1.5 x 1.5) = 26.7
The normal BMI range is 18.5 to 24.9 kg/m2
Based on this range, you can now calculate your idea weight.
Studies have shown that for women whose BMI exceeds the normal range, fertility chances drop. The further away the BMI is from the idea range, the worse off the chances of pregnancy.
Even for women of high BMI who do conceive, the pregnancy is at increased risk of problems, miscarriages being a good example.
The good news – THESE EFFECTS ARE REVERSIBLE!
