Weight (overweight and underweight) can affect fertility for both men and women. This week you will find out the best way to lose weight, which is very important if you are going for IVF and have been told that your BMI must be under 30 before you can have the procedure.

This is because being overweight not only affects natural conception but also the success rates of IVF and ICSI.

If you’re underweight, that’s a problem too, which will also be addressed. Of course, no weight loss plan would be complete without exercise so you will learn how you can devise an effective plan for both yourself and your partner.
