Increasing Chances of Getting Pregnant&Nbsp;

By Nabta Team

Obesity affects the quality and frequency of your ovulation! Obesity can affect the hormonal balance that regulates your menstrual cycle which causes more cycles to be anovulatory (the ovary doesn’t release an egg in such cycles). In addition, even when obese women do ovulate,the quality of the eggs is reduced. Both the above factors contribute to the decreased fertility seen in obese women. Losing even 5 percent of your body weight can increase your chances of getting pregnant.
