Does weight affect my chances of conception?

 

Yes, if a female is overweight or obese, then her chances of conception are less because obesity leads to hormonal imbalances and problems in ovulation. For example, PCOD problem is associated with obesity in which the woman is not able to ovulate every month. It is a well-known fact that if a woman loses 10% of her actual weight, then her chances of conceiving increase multi-fold. In a male partner, excessive weight leads to decreased libido and erection problems leading to decreased chances of conceiving.
