In case of obese patients, the pregnancy success rate is lower both in the case of natural conception and with the use of assisted reproduction methods. According to the studies, the duration of the treatment is demonstrably longer. Higher body weight is also associated with the necessity to use higher doses of medication. Furthermore, stimulating medications are not covered by health insurance and the treatment often becomes more expensive.
The cost of the treatment increases even further when the number of cycles or the age limit for the coverage of costs by the health insurance company is exceeded.
Furthermore, in the case of obesity, women are exposed to a greater risk of complications during pregnancy, especially hypertension and preeclampsia, gestational diabetes and more common vascular diseases (thrombosis). It is therefore advisable to lose at least some weight before the treatment, in this case conception could also occur naturally and you will not need the services of our clinics anymore.
Do not hesitate to contact your physician for more information.
