|Women who are overweight or obese are just as likely to become pregnant when undergoing IVF treatment as those who are a normal weight, according to a new study.
The study was conducted on 1,700 women who underwent their first cycle of IVF between 1997 and 2006, whereby 28 per cent were overweight, eight per cent were obese and five per cent were classed as heavily obese.
Although most primary care trusts limit IVF to women who are not obese, the study found no significant difference was identified between the groups in the numbers of women who became pregnant.
