Weight loss before IVF

We provide treatment for overweight women before IVF procedure

iVF Riga Clinic’s new project “Weight loss before IVF” is specially designed to help women achieve optimal weight and ensure successful IVF treatment.

Overweight is one of the causes of infertility

Being overweight can cause many reproductive health problems in women:

  • Hormonal imbalance, which can lead to irregular menstrual cycles and ovulation disorders.
  • High estrogen levels, which can lead to endometrial hyperplasia, uterine fibroids, risk of endometrial cancer, and other reproductive health problems.
  • Poor IVF results: overweight patients have poorer egg quality, ovarian function, and endometrial quality. Therefore, weight correction is recommended prior to the IVF procedure.
  • High pregnancy risks: overweight women are at increased risk of gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, which can threaten pregnancy and the health of the baby.

The iVF Riga clinic offers a unique service in Latvia – experienced and professional specialists will help overweight women approach the IVF process with the best results in order to achieve their desired goal – pregnancy and the birth of a healthy child.

Overweight patients can be divided into two groups:

  • 1) body mass index (BMI) 30 - 35
  • 2) BMI > 35

For the first group, classical treatment methods are recommended, and for the second group, surgical manipulation is more often used, which can significantly contribute to the outcome - Bariatric surgery (Gastric Bypass or Gastric sleeve surgery).
