The Studies of Ovulation in obese and lean women

Obesity is known to interfere with reproductive outcomes in polycystic ovary syndrome. According to the University of Queensland, In searched MEDLINE and several other databases from 2000 to September 2011 for studies reporting on OAT and reproductive outcomes. Data were synthesized to determine the risk ratio of reproductive outcomes (ovulation and pregnancy) in lean (BMI <25 kg/m(2)) as opposed to overweight or obese women. with 15 datasets (14 articles) obtained for analysis, included 905 subjects in the obese group and 879 subjects in the lean group, lean women had increased ovulation rates (RR 1.43, 95% CI 1.22-1.66) as compared to obese women. Pregnancy rates also showed a similar trend (RR 1.73, 95% CI 1.39-2.17). Reproductive outcomes were generally better in younger women, more recent studies and randomized controlled trials, posted in PubMed.
