Weight-watching and Infertility

Even though it is proven that weight and weight related issues stall the hormone insulin to bring down levels of estrogen, to be able to pinpoint the right weight to fitness ratio is still impossible. There is no golden ratio of weight that will prove to all and everyone that you are at the peak of health. This is sometimes a good thing, as this proves that for now it is just about how you feel and how you can motivate yourself to keep yourself fit and healthy. International Fertility Centre, providing the best of IVF Delhi, wish you a healthy life.

Weight-watching and Infertility

A BMI assessment can make things a lot clearer. Experts suggest that a BMI between 18.5-24.9 range is optimal for fitness and fertility while a BMI above this can hamper the reproductive system. At the same time, the Body Mass Index only calculates the general mass of the body. It does not take into account the fact that body mass is a general term. It does not take into account the fact that fat particles as well muscle is present in the body. Both are important for fertility and a right composition of both is key to pregnancy. If the person is into fitness and has a lean body, there is more muscle present than fat. Here, experts have calculated that ovulation gets impaired if body fat is less than 12 percent and more than 30 to 35 percent. Another proof for this fact is that intense exercise lowers progesterone levels in the body. The theme runs that too much and too little exercise is both bad for the body.

At the same time, exercise of any kind has to be supplemented with a well-rounded diet. Doctors also suggest that, while intense exercise of any kind should be avoided by women trying to get pregnant, food also plays a major role in the overall capability of the body. The daily caloric intake in particular is very important for vitality. If you are underweight, experts suggest that a calorie level of 2,400 to 3,500 kcal a day should be your aim. If overweight, alternate between strength training and cardiovascular exercises with special care given to cardiovascular routines. The workout should last between 45 to 60 minutes. A person who is undergoing any sort of infertility treatment should make sure that the person is avoiding high-intensity workouts that often cause enlargement in the ovaries. This may interfere with any drug that is given during the treatment. The International Fertility Centre, home to the best programmes for IVF Delhi, can solve any query regarding your weight and fertility.

In the end, what is important for the development of a fitness routine that can help control weight which has longevity is something that will evolve gradually. Do not put too much stress on the body initially. Any sort of physical activity builds endurance and this is vital to keep the exercise going. Eat well to ensure that any energy lost in the workout is replenished. If you are able to speak while exercising, this is a sign that the body is agreeable to the routine. Thinking and planning in action is an important way to take up more experiment routines.
