Body weight contributes to infertility

"Dr Okezie Emenike, an Abuja based physician, said on Saturday that being over weight or under weight could cause infertility. Emenike told the the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja that it was important to understand that both underweight and overweight women and men suffered from a higher incidence of infertility."

"He added that severe obesity in men had been shown to alter fertility often due to imbalances in hormone regulation tied to sperm production."

"He also noted that in many cases, overweight or underweight women would have hormonal disorders, which could cause them to ovulate infrequently or not at all." - Quotes by Daily Trust (
