WEIGHT MAKES NO DIF­FER­ENCE

Be­ing un­der­weight or over­weight can have a neg­a­tive im­pact on fer­til­ity, for both men and women. If you are ac­tively try­ing for a baby, cal­cu­late your BMI. Aim for a healthy weight; with a BMI be­tween 20 and 24.9. Op­ti­mis­ing your weight will help reg­u­late your men­strual cy­cle, in­crease your chances of con­ceiv­ing, and re­duce the risk of preg­nancy com­pli­ca­tions.
