Effects of obesity in the female fertility

Women who are overweight or obese may have reduced fertility due to weight gain and poor nutrition.

Body fat plays an important role in the production of hormones involved in the menstrual cycle and reproductive function, such as estrogens, GnRH, FSH and LH.

All this hormonal imbalance causes ovulation alterations, implantation failures and an increased risk of miscarriage. In addition, obesity has also been linked to the pathology of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
