Yes: Women who are overweight have a higher chance of infections, pneumonis, and blood clots in the legs or lungs with c-sections.

Does a woman being overweight by 100 lbs effect her fertility by alot?

Does a woman being overweight by 100 lbs effect her fertility by alot?

Yes: Patients who are this much overweight have a very significant decrease in fertility, and additionally have a much higher risk of complications in pregnancy. Obesity has serious consequences in pregnancy for the mother and the baby. If you lose weight, your fertility may return when you are not expecting it, so contraception should be used until you are healthy and ready to get pregnant.

I am 22 years old woman and I'm 5'2". However I weigh 145lbs. Am I overweight for my height?

BMI: Using body mass index (bmi) as a guide, given your height and weight, your bmi is 26.5. This is considered overweight. Normal bmi is 18.5 to 24.9; overweight is 25 to 29.9.

How to live on 500 calories for 20 weeks do to a woman who is 80lbs/37kg overweight?

How to live on 500 calories for 20 weeks do to a woman who is 80lbs/37kg overweight?

Low calories: Assuming the person could stay on that diet and that adequate nutrients, vitamins, minerals, protein were provided; significant weight loss should entail. Around 7k calories a week would result in about 2 pounds a week of weight loss or roughly 40lb in 20 weeks, more or less is possible.

Is it easy for a 41 year old woman to get pregnant by ivf? She's overweight & doesn't excercise.

Is it easy for a 41 year old woman to get pregnant by ivf? She's overweight & doesn't excercise.

Dr: Dr fowler's information is accurate - in general we expect a 15-25 % pregnancy rate in 41-42 year old women with ivf. This depends on many individual factors as well. Most women in their 40's have signs of diminished ovarian reserve (low egg supply) but this varies and some wil get pregnant relatively easily with ivf, while others struggle. The effect of weight on an ivf cycle is complex. Body mass index (bmi) is not a perfect measure of overweight/ obesity, but it is easy to measure and is a useful tool for studies measuring the effects of obesity as it takes height and weight into account, not just weight. It does not work for people who are low fat/high muscle weight like bodybuilders, but it's useful for the rest of us and is easy to calculate (see the link below). Bmi 18.5 to under 25 is ideal, 25-30 is overweight, and 30 or above is considered obesity. High bmi affects how well ivf drugs are absorbed into the body - most are given as subcutaneous injections (into the fatty tissue under the skin) - so higher doses of injectable medication may be needed. High bmi probably also affects how well embryos implant. Many studies show that high bmi (over 24, over 27, over 30) can result in reduced implantation rates (the chance that each embryo will 'take' in the uterus) without affecting embryo quality, and this leads to lower pregnancy rates with increased bmi. There are also studies that show that women with high bmi have the same success rates as women with lower bmi, but just need higher medication doses. The question has not been definitely settled. Very high bmi (40 or over) affects the safety of ivf - egg retrieval procedures are usually done on an oupatient basis. Many centers use md anesthesiologists, and it is normal not to intubate the patient during the procedure, as we would do for a laparoscopy or major surgery. It makes sense to have an upper limit of bmi for most centers in the us for ivf patients - this varies from center to center but could be in the 40-42.5 range. Pregnancy complications such as gestational diabetes rise with high bmi as well, and some fertility clinics will not treat women with bmi over 45 even with low-tech treatments like clomid, but again policies vary from clinic to clinic. For younger women, especially under 35 with normal ovarian reserve testing, it may be worth delaying treatment until after losing weight, for older women, as long as they are in a safe bmi range, it is often better not to delay treatment especially by 6 months or a year. I have seen successful healthy pregnancies in women with bmi in the low to mid 40's undergoing ivf. So exercise and losing weight is good for most americans, but for a 41 year old woman who needs ivf it's a discussion to have with her fertility md and it's usually better not to delay treatment unless she is in a weight range where her reproductive endocrinologist or anesthesiologist feels it's not safe to proceed. Hope this helps. Best wishes.

If a woman of short stature is overweight or obese do you think the excess weight will cause them to appear shorter in height?

If a woman of short stature is overweight or obese do you think the excess weight will cause them to appear shorter in height?

Why?: It is perception which is how one person looks at it. And that is just their opinion. Obese or thin ones height is ones height... And whether they appear short or not really should not make any difference. Carry yourself as tall and that is what comes through!

Overweight/sedentary: Whether you drive on right or left side of road, lack of exercise is dangerous to your health. Recent studies show that working a sedentary job is deadly, too. Of course, so is making poor nutritional choices. Study published last month (http://bjsm. Bmj. Com/content/early/2015/04/23/bjsports-2015-094618.short) recommends getting out of your chair & standing ~15min every hour or 2hrs/d at work.

How easy is it for a 41 year old woman to get pregnant on her first sexual encounter? Her last child is 14 years old. She is overweight & doesn't exercise.

How easy is it for a 41 year old woman to get pregnant on her first sexual encounter? Her last child is 14 years old. She is overweight & doesn't exercise.

Hello.: Hello. Although fertility rates have dropped significantly by that age, it only takes one viable egg and one healthy, motile sperm to add up to conception. Many women are still able to become pregnant through natural means at that age. Whether or not it occurs the first time two people have sexual intercourse depends on the luck of the draw. The fact that she is overweight, doesn't exercise or that she had her last child 14 years ago, doesn't mean that she can't conceive. With that said, the the odds aren't high for this but it could still occur.

What's wrong can't get THC out of body I am 37 a slighty overweight woman haven't smoked marijuana in about 72 days my THC levels are 71 it was 78, two weeks ago what's happening why won't my body expel it

What's wrong can't get THC out of body I am 37 a slighty overweight woman haven't smoked marijuana in about 72 days my THC levels are 71 it was 78, two weeks ago what's happening why won't my body expel it

Stored in the Fat: Cannabis is stored in the fat and so tends to linger around longer in patients with more fat. Also the testing we do on cannabis levels is not always that precise. In particular, the same sample might have significantly different levels found on repeat testing. So your levels may have gone down more than indicated. Bottom line, it sounds like you are doing well and hope you feel better.
