Infertility research in obese women breakthrough

  • 2 Comments

New evidence on the reasons behind the well-known risk of infertility among obese women has been discovered by scientists.

The study found that the risk is accounted for by chronically high insulin levels causing the pituitary gland to trigger hormonal changes that disrupt ovarian functioning and impair fertility.

The American research, which was conducted in mice, goes against the widely held belief that infertility is a result of insulin resistance. The study was carried out by the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore.

  • Most time it`s good to share problem. WHO KNOWS??
    I suffered Adhesions that damaged my uterus and this is really what i think you should understand.
    I finally was able to conceive a child to my own the year 2016 after 21 years without any issue. this really was the worst thing ever. It was a miracle that indeed shocked me. because i was left with no option but to use a Herbal Health Concoction that was prepared from Herbs to help the Immune. I got to find out about this from someone and i talked to the direct source about my problem. He`s name is Dwr Dexter and HE told me how some necessary few herbs will be useful as to women`s health and recovery and he had to do what knows best. He sent the Herbs to me and gave instruction on method of use. this all happened and i really have been able to say i`m glad God did this.
    You can congratulate me (201) 426-7860 but dont call at bed time..
    You can get in-touch with Dexter via Email (Dexterherbs@dr.com)
