Obesity is one of the leading causes for infertility in both men and women. Obesity leads to insulin resistance and also to polycystic ovarian disease (PCOD) in women. Bariatric surgery leads to weight loss and that in turn improves insulin sensitivity and reduces PCOD. The topic of this blog is if pregnancy is a good idea after bariatric surgery. We shall discuss this topic in the points below:
Hence, it is definitely a good idea to conceive after bariatric surgery. however, one must wait for atleast 12 months after getting the surgery done. It is advisable to conceive only after this as during the first year, your body is actively losing weight and also your intake will be less. After a year, your intake will become better and weight loss would also have stabilized. All in all, it is definitely better to lose weight before conceiving. Please be in touch with your gynaecologist and bariatric team for better guidance during pregnancy.
