Obesity levels among men and women in the State have seen an increase of over 10 per cent over the last decade, according to Dr V Latha of Nova IVI Fertility (NIF).
“Even if pregnancy is achieved, obese women have a higher rate of miscarriage due to hormonal imbalance and other issues. We recommend our patients to follow a healthy diet and exercise regime that will help them retain good health and a high fertility score. Weight loss can enhance fertility and lead to successful pregnancies for a long term. It is important to note that fertility specialists advise weight loss before IVF treatments. Having a check on one’s weight will not only help prevent other deadly diseases but also save one’s fertility,” she told mediapersons.
NIF is one of the leading fertility centres and aims to bring advanced assisted reproductive technology to the country in partnership with IVI of Spain. This partnership has resulted in a substantial addition to Nova’s in vitro fertilisation services and technology, including proprietary software, training and quality management, she added.
NIF currently operates 19 fertility centres in the country.
