Obese Woman Got Pregnant after Losing Weight for IVF

Pregnant35-year-old British woman, Rachel Denton, managed to get pregnant naturally after losing weight in order to have in vitro fertilization (IVF). She spent years trying to get pregnant, but had no success because of her weight. Doctors claimed, she was too fat for IVF. She used to weigh 264 lb (120 kg).

The woman had several diseases, which were preventing her from conceiving: polycystic ovaries and thyroid gland pathology. She needed to lose weight in order to have IVF. Within a year Rachel dropped over 110 lb (50 kg) and now she weighs 150 lb (68 kg). By the time she was to visit the reproduction center, she realized that she was already pregnant.

Gynecologists remind us, that excess weight is a major cause of infertility. Losing weight increases the chances to conceive.
