Weight in­fer­til­ity link

Manchester Evening News - - NATIONAL -

BOYS born with low­erthan-av­er­age weight are at higher risk of hav­ing fer­til­ity prob­lems in later life, ac­cord­ing to re­search.

Dan­ish sci­en­tists have found that men who were born small for ges­ta­tional age with birth weights in the bot­tom 10% had a 55% in­creased risk of in­fer­til­ity com­pared to those born in the nor­mal weight range.

The find­ings did not show any link be­tween ges­ta­tional age and in­fer­til­ity in women.
