Weight Loss for Infertility

Excessive weight, as indicated by a high Body Mass Index (BMI), can pose significant challenges to fertility for both men and women.

In women, obesity triggers hormonal shifts that diminish the likelihood of conception and disrupt normal ovulation patterns, often leading to conditions like Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). Even for those considering assisted conception methods such as IVF, obesity markedly reduces success rates. Moreover, obesity increases the risk of miscarriage, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, blood clots, and complications during childbirth, often resulting in caesarean sections.

In men, obesity correlates with lower testosterone levels and diminished sexual performance.

How does weight loss positively impact fertility?

Weight loss plays a crucial role in restoring fertility by addressing hormonal imbalances. Adipose tissue, or fat tissue, acts as an endocrine organ, secreting various chemicals and hormones that influence body weight and fertility. Excessive adipose tissue disrupts testosterone action in men and exacerbates insulin resistance in women, leading to an imbalance between oestrogen and testosterone.

How can The London Obesity Clinic support you on your fertility journey?

We begin with a comprehensive consultation conducted by one of our experienced endocrinologists. This involves a thorough assessment of your medical history, weight-related conditions, sleep and hunger patterns, and body composition analysis.

Following the consultation, our specialist team, including a dedicated dietitian, provides a 3-month intensive Fertility-Weight Loss program. Throughout the program, you’ll receive both offline and online support. Our specialists will address various aspects including emotional eating, sleep patterns, hunger management, sexual dysfunction, and other endocrine issues to optimise your fertility journey.

Furthermore, you’ll have the option to join a maintenance program for up to 12 months of additional support.
