Weight Can Be a Heavy Problem

Did you know that more than half of all U.S. women are overweight or obese when they become pregnant? And that being overweight can create a multitude of complications, such as gestational diabetes and preeclampsia? In addition, being overweight can cause problems getting pregnant, as can being underweight.

Fertility doctors recommend that women get their bodies to a healthy body mass index (BMI) before trying to conceive or undergoing fertility treatment. Read the latest blog by Beth Hartog, M.D., about Body Mass Index and Fertility. Some fertility clinics are even offering programs to help patients achieve a healthy weight.

Remember, an unhealthy BMI is one of the risk factors for infertility that can be under your control. To read more on the subject, check out FertilityAuthority's Fertility Risks section for the following articles:

I'm aware women need to have a certain weight to have a healthy pregnancy, but it's really a bummer when you have to work your way towards gaining the perfect one. My wife is very thin and she was considering going to the gym to gain some more muscles. She found steroids for sale in USA and she's decided to purchase a couple.
