Weight management tips to enhance your fertility

Weight management tips to enhance your fertility
The number of young overweight women and men seeking medical assistance for planning family is on a rise. Being overweight not only affects ones’ chances of becoming a parent, but also can lead to complications in pregnancy- adversely affecting both mother and baby. Therefore, it is very important for all young men and women to know the fundamentals of causation and detection of this important disorder.

What is Obesity and how to confirm that?

The most often asked questions in this context are- what is a normal acceptable weight, when does one get labelled as overweight and what is the definition of obesity? Another important question we often get asked is- what’s the difference between being overweight and obese?

In very simple terms, what a physician evaluates to check for obesity in a person is a simple index known as “body mass Index” or BMI. BMI can be calculated by simply dividing the person’s body weight in Kg by the square of person’s height measured in meters. BMI is measured as Kg/m2. Following are broad guidelines for detection of obesity-
1. BMI of < 18.5 indicates that the person is underweight
2. BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 indicates that the person has got normal weight
3. BMI between 25 and 29.9 indicates that the person is overweight
4. BMI of > 30 indicates obesity

How does Obesity affect fertility?

Excessive body weight in women causes multiple hormonal imbalances, which can result in irregular menstruation and reduced frequency of ovulation, thus leading to infertility. Also, the outcome of Infertility treatment in obese women is poorer than in their normal weight counterparts. Obesity also increases the chances of pregnancy related complications such as miscarriage, pregnancy induced hypertension and gestational diabetes and hence increases the requirement offers cesarean delivery. And not to forget that the labor is that much harder and prolonged for obese women.

Obese males also suffer from reduced fertility as they tend to have lower level of testosterone, which suppresses sperm production. Obesity can also case erectile dysfunction in men, which can result in reduced fertility.

What can you do?

Here are five easy weight management tips to help you realize your dream of having a child-
1. Watch your meals- take a healthy diet and avoid excess carbohydrates and fat
2. Watch your beverages- drink adequate quantity of water, avoid soft drinks as they contain empty calories and refrain from alcohol
3. Stop smoking and keep in mind that there is nothing like occasional/ moderate smoking
4. Exercise regularly and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle- short sessions of brisk walking, swimming, jogging or skipping are good means to keep one active and healthy
5. Avoid stress and practice Yoga/ meditation or other stress buster techniques that suit you

Myth - Breast feeding spoils the Mother's figure

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Agra
Not at all! Breasts sag from obesity and lax muscle tone - not because of nursing a baby. To the contrary, the baby's sucking leads to the uterus contracting, which helps restore the belly to its normal position quite quickly. What you really need is a well fitting bra to give you support, with nursing flaps to allow your baby easy access to your breasts.

I am 27 years old. This month I missed my period. Usually I use to get my periods with in 22 to 26 days. But this time 32 days over but I didn't get my period yet. I took home pregnancy test on 32nd day and result came negative. I am in confusion. Is it too early to test. Am I still can be a pregnant? I never missed my periods beyond 32 days. Please advise

Hello, NORMAL period is defined between 23 -35 days. If you have been delayed for 5 days now , then you can repeat the pregnancy test after a week again to confirm or rule out pregnancy.If negative then yo can actually wait for 15 days post missed period to allow your menses to resume naturally as it can be delayed sue to stress induced hormonal imbalances which rectify on their own in next few cycles after stress is relieved.

Premature ejaculation can also be defined as an ejaculation that occurs before the man wishes it to occur or when ejection occurs too quickly to sexually satisfy his partner. Premature ejection is often due to physical changes occurring in the body due to aging. Men over age 30 may begin to have problems even though their sex lives were fine when they were younger. The problem is often an inadequate blood supply in the penis. When the arteries in the penis become partially clogged with fat and cholesterol, maintaining an erection becomes more difficult. When this occurs, your brain tells your body that you'd better ejaculate before you lose your erection, and a pattern for premature ejection is developed. So, how to deal with this situation. We should live a healthy lifestyle in order to maintain good arterial health. Your potency will be prolonged if you eat a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet, exercise regularly, don't smoke or drink and keep your stress managed.


    Homeopathy has an effective and promising treatment for premature ejaculation or early ejaculation problem. It is because homeopathy treats the cause of any health problems rather than the symptoms. 

  •     Homeopathic treatment increases the emission and ejaculation time of semen during a sexual act.
  •     It also helps to cure the erectile problem associated with premature ejaculation.
  •     It also cures the physical and mental exhaustion associated with pe due to over mentally stressed condition
  •     Homeopathic treatment cures the anxiety condition and guilty feeling symptoms associated with pe
  •     Homeopathic treatment cures the night emission too occurs in young mass.
  •     Homeopathic treatment also cures the prostatic discharge during urine and stool
  •     Homeopathic treatment also helps for oligospermia, azoospermia condition
  •     Homeopathic treatment is the most safest and permanent approach to treatment in premature ejaculation problem

Me and my wife are trying to conceive for 2 years. She started having irregular periods 6 months after marriage. Doctor did laparoscopy, tubal test and ovarian drilling for pcos. She is having induced periods after that. After inducing periods, doctor directly started giving FSH injections 75 mg and follicular study. He concluded that she is not ovulating and decided to double the dosage next cycle. But she ovulated late that same cycle and got pregnant. But it ended up in a miscarriage after 6 weeks (spontaneous miscarriage). After one month doctor again started giving FSH injections and she started having heavy mid cycle bleeding. She consulted another doctor and she gave her metformin 500 for 30 days and siphene 50 mg without follicular study. That month she got her periods naturally. Right now she is only taking metformin. Will this help her to ovulate naturally. She got periods last months naturally. Does that mean that she ovulated last month? Her tubal test is clear and hormonal profile is normal and no thyroid issues. Her weight is 72 and height is 5 feet 4 inches.

Your wife would need to document ovulation by ultrasound or blood test to be sure of ovulation and guide you about the fertile period to time intercourse. This would help to decide on further management also. Only metformin may not induce ovulation for sure but yes it causes weight reduction which help in spontaneous ovulation.

Both fof you may need to be investgated. However it is too early to undergo that. Give a try for another 6 months. Use the most fertile period of your cycle (12-14 days of your cycle if itis 27-28 days cycle) to have coitus.

Depo-Provera injection is quiet ok for most women with 99% success rate and a single dose provides contraception for 12-14 weeks.. But it’s not recommended for those who have unexplained vaginal bleeding,Liver disease,Breast cancer and Blood clots .But continuous usage of this injection may have few side effects also like Irregular menstrual periods, or no periods at all,Headaches ,Nervousness,Depression, Dizziness,, Changes in appetite,Weight gain,Unwanted facial and body hair,Hair loss and Loss of bone mineral density.Change in the menstrual cycle is the most common side effect. You may have irregular bleeding or spotting. After a year of use, about 50% of women will stop getting their periods. Their periods usually return when they no longer get the shots.Long-term use of Depo-Provera may lead to loss of bone mineral density, which makes osteoporosis more likely. This risk is greater if you've taken the shot for longer than 2 years, especially if osteoporosis runs in your family, you drink a lot, you smoke, or you have other risk factors for the condition. But most importantly You can become pregnant as soon as 3 to 4 months after your last shot. But it takes some women up to a year or 2 to conceive after they stop using this type of birth control. This time frame seems unrelated to how long you used the shot. Taking regular pill is a good option than this injection but again some women complain of weight gain with pills also.So the best contraceptive is CONDOMS and a knowledge of safe periods in which you can have relations without a condom without fear of pregnancy and women health will remain intact.Consult me

This discharge is from various glands in the vagina which secrete when stimulated. The discharge is healthy and harmless. It helps in lubrication and protection from infections.
