Varanasi: Obesity affects the female reproductive health and also increases complications during pregnancy, said experts at the symposium on 'recent trends in infertility', held on BHU campus on Saturday.

The doctors also said that keeping a tab on weight can be a good idea to cut down the use of gonadotropin (a drug given to induce pregnancy) in cases of infertility.

Dr Shilpi Pandey, a consultant at the assisted reproduction unit (ARU), University of Aberdeen (UK), said that obesity in women is responsible for poor reproductive health including menstrual irregularities, infertility and irregular ovulation.
