Both obese men and women can face fertility problems unless they reduce their weight. Reducing weight as the first step can bring back their fertility.
- Obese men are over three times as likely to have low sperm counts compared to their normal-weight counterparts. A study published in the journal Fertility and Sterility showed that the heaviest men had a 3-fold increased risk of having a low count of progressively motile sperms.
- Increased body fat can also be tied to lower testosterone levels and higher estrogen levels.
- Obese men had 1.6 times greater likelihood than overweight or normal-weight men to have a high percentage of abnormally shaped sperm.
- There is a trend toward increasing odds of erectile dysfunction with increasing BMI.
- Obesity is associated with a greater risk of impotence.
- Obesity is also linked with metabolic syndrome and polycystic ovarian disease (PCOD) in women and associated infertility.
