Fertility Problems and Obesity in Women: How Are They Linked?

My first idea was - yes, there is a link! I would not like to have an intercourse with an obese woman. I simply can't, no offence. I prefer www jeegar com styled ones. However, doctors find another link between the two problems....

Infertility and obesity have often been linked among women of reproductive age, but what really is the precise relationship between the two? Infertility can be induced by a lot of factors, and know that women of reproductive age recommended by their gynecologists to lose some weight so they improve on their chances of bearing and giving birth to a healthy child.

Obesity has reached epidemic proportions in this country, with 31 percent of white, 38 percent of Hispanic, and 49 percent of African American women considered overweight or obese (2002 Statistics). Obesity is defined as a body mass index (BMI) greater than 30kg/m2 while overweight is defined as a BMI of 25 Ц30 kg/m2.

Infertility in obese and overweight women is primarily related to ovulatory dysfunction. Anovulation often results in irregular menstrual cycles. Indeed, studies have shown that 30 percent to 47 percent of obese women will have irregular menstrual cycles. The likelihood of irregular menstrual cycles increases in direct proportion to increases in weight.
In addition, women who weigh more than the recommended weight for their height and age pose a risk to their developing fetus. This is because overweight pregnant women often have larger fetuses and more likely need a C-section to prevent a difficult delivery that may both injure the mother and baby.

Moreover, once pregnancy occurs, obese women have a higher rate of pregnancy loss. In fact, studies show they have up to a two-fold higher risk of miscarriage compared to normal weight women. It is not clear why this occurs. Nonetheless, weight loss can dramatically decrease the risk of miscarriage.

Overall, however, the women in the study, who ranged in age from 18 to 78 years, were as likely to have been pregnant and to have given birth to at least one live child as women in the general population. Seventy-nine percent of those who took part in the study had been pregnant at least once, and 74 percent had at least one live birth, the researchers found.

Before delivery, overweight moms-to-be are at a higher risk of developing diabetes - known as gestational diabetes - during pregnancy. Gestational diabetes is associated with metabolic problems in the fetus, such as low blood sugar and jaundice. As well as, the fetus of overweight mothers may experience excessive growth, which often leads to difficulties during labor.

Heavy women also tend to be less active, and more susceptible to developing deep venous thrombosis or DVT in their legs due too poor circulation which forms blood clots. Blood clots can cause life-threatening complications if left untreated, especially during pregnancy.

Apart from weight loss, treatments for infertility in obese women do not differ substantially from treatments in non-obese women.

Women who become obese -- a step above overweight -- by the age of 18 are more likely to become infertile and develop polycystic ovarian syndrome than others, new research suggests.

Before a woman even gets pregnant, the extra tens of pounds of weight may cause infertility. For instance, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), a condition where cysts (fluid-filled sacs) form on the ovaries and disrupts the regular menstrual cycle, is commonly associated with overweight and obese women. As well as, fat tissue can produce an excess of estrogen. As a result, overweight and obese women may experience hormonal imbalance that can prevent ovulation.

About half of the study participants aged 18 to 44 who could become pregnant said they wouldn't try to have more children after bariatric surgery. The women in this group hadn't reached menopause and weren't sterilized, didn't have partners who were sterilized, and didn't have some other obstacle in the way of pregnancy.

However, 30 percent of the women who could still become pregnant stated that pregnancy was very important to them, and one-third of this group planned to get pregnant within two years of undergoing bariatric surgery, the study authors noted.
Most health care professionals recommend overweight women who are planning to get pregnant to lower their BMI by losing weight. However, losing weight rapidly before conception can lower your odds of conceiving and increase your risks of other pregnancy complications such as toxemia. So, the best thing to do is to cut down the weight at least six months before trying to conceive.

For weight loss and fitness ideas consider different exercises that compliment your busy lifestyle. It may be walking on your lunch breaks, signing up for a yoga class, doing Pilates or a relaxing swim after work. Consult your doctor for ways you can improve your fertility by changing your lifestyle and maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine.
In fact, are there any obese women at www jeegar com?
Some men could find them attractive, I'm sure, inspite of fertility problems, eh?

Is Orgazm Possible for a Woman During Childbirth?

I'm sure there are much, much easier and pleasant ways to acheve orgazm for women, and www jeegar com only comfirms that. Although it's never been studied no cases are described in medical literature, some women claim to have had orgasms during childbirth. Debra Pascali-Bonaro says that 20 (can you believe that!) percent of mothers questioned for her film Orgasmic Birth considered the births they they had orgasmic.

"Some of them literally with birth orgasms, and others just with heightened sensations that they would categorize as an orgasmic emotional high."
Dr. Christiane Northrup, an ob-gyn and author, confirms that childbirth orgazms are absolutely possible because birth is a sexual event." However, she says, this phenomenon can be observed only during a natural birth with no drugs involved to relieve pain, in a setting that has a tremendous amount of respect for the mother, her mate, and her caregivers.

Dr. Erin Tracy, ob-gyn at Massachusetts General Hospital, remains skeptical though not directly denying the possibility of childbirth orgazm. "I'm not saying it's impossible," she says. "If they're having any stimulation of their genital area, theoretically I would imagine it could stimulate something resembling an orgasm... but [it's] not based on any science that I've seen." Dr. Northrup thinks the occurence of orgasmic births would much higher if it weren't for hospitals' clod lack of intimate atmosphere. Really, just imagime a resident, an attending physician, two nurses and four interns you've never seen before on top for better fun come in and tell you to open your legs so that they can stick their hands in your vagina...I really doubt that can arouse any sexual sensation. Incidentally, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists advises that the safest place to deliver is in a hospital or an accredited birthing center, where all you get is an old obstetritian.

My wife says she was ready to kill anyone who touched her while giving birth to our son...Maybe that was because of too much pleasure? And what if she were shown something from www jeegar com?

Viagra Can Be Beneficial For Women on SSRIs - How it Began...

Now that female Viagra (Sildenafil Citrate) is becoming increasingly popular I just remembered how it all began, seversl years ago...

Good news for women whose sex lives descended to nothingness after going on antidepressants: a new study says good old Viagra might help! At least, the long search for a Viagra equivalent for women has led researchers to what do you think. . . Sildenafil Citrate!

In a small study of 98 women published today, the little blue pill helped women whose sexual performance had flagged as a side effect of taking antidepressants, known as SSRIs -- a very specific finding that could open a new use for the male impotence drug. The report in the Journal of the American Medical Assn. is one of the few to find some benefit for women despite nearly a decade of searching by its maker, Pfizer Inc.

The study suggests that Viagra improves "orgasm delay" for healthy, antidepressant-taking, pre-menopausal women, compared with a placebo.

More than 6 million women in the U.S. suffer from major depression. Antidepressants are the most common treatment for the mood disorder, and while they can be quite beneficial, they often have debilitating sexual side effects.

Doctors said the study, which was funded with a grant from Pfizer, could foster broader experimentation with Viagra for women, although they added that the drug was unlikely to become the blockbuster phenomenon it is among men. Its effectiveness in women is limited compared with men, and Pfizer has said it does not plan to develop the drug for female disorders.

Still, the study is certain to rekindle debate about the nature of sexual problems in women and men. While male difficulties have largely been seen in mechanical terms, female dysfunction has been viewed as more complicated and connected to desire.

But Dr. Irwin Goldstein, director of sexual medicine at Alvarado Hospital in San Diego, who has prescribed Viagra for some of his female patients, said the new research suggests that "however you think about men and women, there are a lot of similarities."

Not long after Viagra was introduced in 1998 to treat erectile dysfunction in men, Pfizer started researching its use in women. The company hoped to add to the success of Viagra, which had worldwide sales of $1.76 billion last year.

Initial studies of Viagra in women were disappointing. The drug blocks an enzyme that inhibits blood flow, which, in the case of men, allows more blood to flow to the penis. In women, the drug increased engorgement of genital tissue but failed to enhance women's enjoyment of sex. Pfizer ended company-initiated trials of the drug for female sexual arousal disorder in 2004.

However, many doctors said the early studies weren't selective enough, because they included women who lacked desire. Such women, like men with desire problems, couldn't expect to be helped by Viagra, they said. This is just one study of a select group of women and doesn't mean Viagra is now for the another ladies' pill (unless you are Samantha Jones on Sex & The City!) In fact, for some reason Pfizer abandoned trials to seek FDA approval of Viagra to treat female sexual disorder, and the agency doesn't endorse the prescription of the little blue pills for women.

Women Evaulate Sexual Potency Based on the Depth of Man's Voice

If a recent study holds true, having a voice like the late Barry White, (oh, baby), can be the key to sexual potency.

For many women, the deepness of a man's voice is one of the most powerful aphrodisiacs, a new study co-authored by a Canadian psychologist suggests.

All else being equal, males with lower voices tend to make more children than their higher-pitched competitors, found the researchers in a search designed to explane sexual attraction form evolution viewpoint

Tanzania's Hadza tribesmen, one of the world's few remaining hunter-gatherer societies were involved in the study. Hadzas were chosen because they never use birth control.

The discovery that the number of children depends on the pitch of their voices which underlines the deep-seated roots of the seemingly superficial human trait, said David Feinberg, a psychology professor at Mc-Master University in Hamilton, Ont.

Previous research has indicated that a deep voice signifies robust genes, in evolutionary terms. The findings, however, can not really be considered on the real dating scene, stressed Prof. Feinberg, a co-author of the study.

"This doesn't mean, go out and find a guy with a low-pitched voice if you want to have lots of babies," he said. "[But] it tells us a bit about where we came from and where we're going."

The findings, though, came as someting absolutely natural to professionals in the dating world.

At Toronto-based Misty River Introductions, a match-maker, confirms that men with deep voices always seem to succeed better, and are much more likely to move beyond the initial stage of a telephone conversation with their potential date, said manager Linda Miller.

"We've had certain clients, you couldn't tell if they were men or women when they called in. They don't do terribly well," she said. "And then you have men who have radio-annnouncer voices, they have that great masculine timbre, and every call is a hit."

Some of Ruth Claramunt's female clients at Hearts Canada, another match-making service, have actually specified that they like men with low voices.

"Or if someone has a squeaky little voice: 'Oh, I didn't really like him,' " said Ms. Claramunt. "They could be a great big hunky guy and if they have a squeaky voice over the phone, it's sort of a negative."

Prof. Feinberg said he has been trying to see whether human males attract their mates with the same kind of "ornaments," like a peacock's plumage or a deer's antlers, seen elsewhere in the animal world.

There is another explanation to consider, however. Deep voices are typical for men with high testosterone levels in adolescent. High testosterone levels can also cause immune suppression in a weaker person, so someone who survived to adulthood with a deep voice would necessarily have a strong genetic stucture, said the psychologist.

No one, however, has been able to test until now to link the attraction of a deep male voice reproductive success.

For the study, Prof. Feinberg and his colleagues, anthropologists at Harvard and Florida State Universities, looked at 49 men and 42 women among the 1,000-strong Hadza people, who choose their own mates but have a fairly high divorce rate in an informal system of "serial monogamy."

The participants spoke into sensitive microphones and had their voices analysed with sophisticated electronic equipment. The pitch of the men's voices accounted for about 42% of the difference in number of children between fathers, the researchers found.

Although other studies have suggested that men prefer women with high voices, the study found that the pitch of the women's voices did not predertemine how many children they would produce.
