Fertility And Nutrition 101

Nutrition links with fertility in many different ways:

  • Being underweight can lead to anovulation, reduced estrogen levels, and increased miscarriage risks
  • Obesity affects menstruation regularity
  • Obesity can lead to ovulatory issues and diminished response to fertility drugs
  • Obese women are at higher risk for miscarriage, gestational diabetes, hypertension, preeclampsia, or toxemia
  • PCOS is linked with insulin resistance, which causes hormonal imbalances in the ovaries
  • Hormonal imbalances can interrupt the normal cycle of ovulation
  • Being overweight can upset the balance of sex hormones, with or without PCOS
  • Excess abdominal fat can increase production of androgen levels, which must be consistent for normal ovulation and conception
  • Excess body fat can trigger imbalances of the hypothalamus and pituitary hormones in the brain which are needed for normal ovulation
  • Increased insulin levels due to either obesity or PCOS disrupt the balance of sex hormones in the ovaries, which can interfere with ovulation
