11 Embarrassing Fertility Questions Answered
There are probably all sorts of crazy questions you have, which don't spring to your lips when you're sitting in front of your doc in a paper gown. Never fear though, because here are the answers to all the questions you've been dying to ask, but haven't.
7. Is there a body type that’s best for conceiving? I’m flat-chested and thin-hipped … are women with more curves more fertile?
“Fertile women come in all sizes,” says Glahn, pointing out that women of all body types are able to get pregnant. However, Dr. Randy Morris, MD, associate clinical professor of Reproductive Endocrinology at the University of Illinois School of Medicine in Chicago, says a recent study has shown that women with larger breasts and slimmer waists have higher levels of estrogen and progesterone, the hormones associated with fertility. The study did not compare pregnancy rates though. Since you can’t control your basic body shape, focus instead on staying healthy and maximizing your fertile period.
