Weight


Are women who carry fat in their stomach area more likely to have difficulty conceiving than those who carry weight all over?

Dr Dawn:

Carrying weight around your middle is associated with higher risk of heart disease than carrying the same weight on your hips and thighs.

Being overweight can be associated with reduced fertility but I don't think it makes any difference where you carry that weight.
