Too fit for fertility?

    I've been told that a fat percentage of 22% is the minimum for conception.... 


    That sounds like something a guy would say when he's forgotten his contraceptives.


    I regularly see women with a BMI of less than 20 that are pregnant. So don't believe him when he tells you that image

  • So is there a % fat/BMI whatever that also works at the other end? can you be too fat to get pregnant? 

    (wonders where that might be & how many pies I'd need to eat to get there...)

    I knew a woman who wasn't just obese she was round. She got pregnant.

    I think you'd need to eat an awful lot of pies HL.

  • Is there anyone out there who did cut back on their running programme (and consciously eat a few more pies) in order to boost their chances of getting pregnant?

    I'd love to find out if it worked!
