So what is your dream weight? Size zero? Or would you like a big bosom and huge buttocks like the old time film stars. Fashions are a dictate of the society that you live in. Beauty is a creation of the human mind. But did you know that that both ‘thin’ and ‘fat’ impair fertility? Let’s look at it a little scientifically.
We all know that an egg is released around the 12th to 14th day of the menstrual cycle. The time from the egg release or ovulation to the next oncoming period is relatively fixed at 14 days. If ovulation is delayed by, say, one week, the next period will also be delayed by a week. And what if ovulation does not occur at all – then the next period will be delayed and irregular. Both, the delay and absence of ovulation impair fertility. The factors that could cause this are – excessive weight, too thin, excessive eating, excessive starvation, excessive exercise, too sedentary – are you getting it? It is the extreme of anything and you could land up as infertile.
