Successful weight loss interventions before in vitro fertilization: fat chance?
Most expert opinions and guidelines indicate the necessity for weight loss before in vitro fertilization (IVF) in women who are overweight or obese. This is based on the documented impact of obesity on pregnancy rates and pregnancy complications and the long-term impact on the child in natural conceptions. Some clinicians and authorities refuse to treat patients unless they are below a certain body mass index. In the past this advice has been hindered by a lack of opportunity for patients to join lifestyle programs and the high dropout failure before treatment.
