New study proves losing weight does not impact fertility in women

Women who are obese and struggling to become pregnant are often advised to lose weight, but a new study finds no fertility benefits from weight loss.

According to a recent study published in the journal PLOS Medicine, weight loss does not improve fertility in women but confers other benefits such as metabolic health.

For the study, researchers examined 379 women with obesity and unexplained infertility for a period of three years. Participants were into two groups; the first group dieted intensely using meal replacements and increased physical activity. The other group simply increased their physical activity without trying to lose weight.

In total, 23 of the 188 women who completed the weight-loss program ended up giving birth and among the 191 who completed the exercise-only program, 29 gave birth. Based on their findings, researchers concluded that weight-loss programs did not increase fertility or enhance birth outcomes in women.
