Health awareness and patient education event was organized by New Mowasat Hospital, by the Gynecology and reproduction medicine consultant Dr. Nahed Hammadieh, educating on obesity and its effect on pregnancy. Dr. Hammadieh represented that Obesity results in an increased production of estrogen; this hormonal imbalance in turn interferes with ovulation, which of course, is the basis of successful conception. Ovulatory disorders are the leading cause of female infertility, resulting in the disruption of hormones, menstrual cycles, and conception, such disorders are linked to weight disorders, mainly being overweight and obese.

High estrogen levels associated with obesity can also result in pre-cancerous transformations (usually reversible) in the uterus. Women who are overweight or obese are less likely to respond to fertility drugs, because excess weight interferes with the proper absorption of a variety of drugs used in infertility treatment.

Women affected by obesity not only have problems with fertility, but are also at a greater risk for pregnancy complications. Such pregnancy complications include:
having a Caesarean section, giving birth to a large baby and gestational diabetes

There are many options available in treating obesity, such as:
Altering diet, avoid foods that are high in saturated or trans fats or that are high in sugar.
Enrich your diet with whole grains, vegetables, fruits and lean sources of protein. Exercise regularly.
Even moderate forms of exercise, such as walking or low-impact aerobics, can lead to healthy weight loss
