Obesity Causes Infertility! The sedentary lifestyles brought about by technological developments cause obesity and threaten reproductive health. For this reason, more and more families use assisted reproductive techniques because they cannot have children in the normal way. Obesity in women affects hormones and causes menstrual irregularities and consequently infertility. If obesity is involved in pregnancy, the chances of healthy development of the baby are reduced and the risk of pregnancy is low. In order to regain fertility in recurrent miscarriages, the mother should lose weight, exercise and medication should remove hormonal disorders.
Excess Weight Reduces Tube Baby Chance It is known that fat women have less success in IVF treatment. Those who are overweight compared to their ideal body weight do not respond well to therapies that stimulate ovulation in assisted reproductive treatments. Ovulation disorder is one of the most important problems in conception. Hormonal problems, thyroid and adrenal glands, stress, excessive weight loss and weight gain can lead to irregularities in ovulation. Changes in insulin metabolism and hormone levels of those with high weight may adversely affect egg and embryo quality. This situation affects the attachment of the embryo to the uterus, conception of pregnancy or the continuation of pregnancy. Excessive weight in the mother can cause an increase in the male hormone. In the body, the male hormones released from the peripheral adipose tissue or from the wall of the small cysts in the eggs cause disruption of the spawning mechanism and decrease the egg quality. With this kind of hormone tests and blood biochemistry, a possible problem can be determined and a multidisciplinary approach can be used. If necessary, the drugs to be used with dieticians, appropriate diet and exercise to lose weight after starting the treatment will increase the chances of pregnancy, as well as the problems related to obesity in patients will protect the pregnancy. These include hypertension, diabetes, large infants, difficult birth and some postpartum problems. Pregnant Women Should Choose Organic Food Maternal health during pregnancy is very important for the development and genetic structure of the baby. Couples who want to have children should be aware of their nutrition and weight during this process. During pregnancy, some ready-to-eat foods contain additives and preservatives, which may be contraindicated in pregnancy. The chemicals used during the production of these foods pose a serious risk for maternal and infant health. Products containing undetermined genetically modified organism (GMO) products adversely affect the development of the baby and increase the risk of miscarriage. For all these reasons, food should be avoided as much as possible, organic and fresh foods to be cooked at home should be preferred. If this is not possible, we recommend that fresh vegetables and fruits be washed thoroughly to remove chemical debris, and that vegetables and fruits are normally consumed during the season. For example, it would be useful not to prefer tomato consumption in winter. Also; cola, tea and coffee consumption should be paid attention, these drinks should not be consumed too much. Alcohol should not be used in pregnancy, even in small amounts, since alcohol can harm the development of the baby.
