Weight and Fertility

Posted Nov 17 2008 9:11pm

For some time now, researchers have noticed an increase in fertility problems for both men and women.  Now new research shows that being overwight or obese is a primary cause of fertility difficulties.  In men, being overweight reduces sperm count and also damages the sperm.  In women, being overweight can reduce the efficiency of ovulation and also increase the chances of miscarriage.  All this is just another reason for people to watch their weight.
