Obesity Linked To Multiple Female Reproductive Disorders

Obesity puts you at risk of several health-related issues. It increases your chances of cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, type-2 diabetes, among others. 

A recent study conducted in the United Kingdom has found a link between obesity and multiple female reproductive disorders, further reinstating the need to lose weight.

The female reproductive disorders that the study found to be linked to obesity included polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), heavy menstrual bleeding, uterine fibroids, and pre-eclampsia.

PCOS is a hormonal disorder in women characterised by irregular periods, weight-related issues, facial hair growth, and insulin resistance.

Uterine fibroids generally develop during childbearing age. It is characterised by noncancerous growths in the uterus.

Pre-eclampsia is a pregnancy complication characterised by high blood pressure that can further lead to serious implications.
