Your Partner’s Weight Affects Your Chances
Tired of people pointing the finger at you for fertility problems? If your male partner is overweight and you are trying to conceive with him, his weight might be contributing to fertility problems. A study in the journal Epidemiology shows that for every 20 pounds overweight your partner is, his fertility is reduced by 10%. Every three point increase in a man’s BMI increases his chances of infertility by 12% according to the study.
