A lot of people think that belly fat is one of the main factors that leads to lower fertility in people. Unfortunately, that’s not true.
There is no scientific evidence linking belly fat to less fertility or fertility problems, and there is no link between the size and shape of your hips and belly fat. It is true that in women who are obese this can increase their chances of having fertility problems. However, it is also true that obesity, particularly in women, can also have an effect on the size of the ovaries, causing them to become larger. So in this regard, there are lots of ways in which obesity can affect fertility. The body fat stores in your belly have an important effect on fertility, as they make your ovaries larger.
The bottom line? It’s not just about whether you have the belly fat or not. If you’re overweight, then increasing your levels of body fat by about 30% will make your ovaries larger. A woman who has an ovary size of about 30% is usually considered obese and thus has a much higher risk of infertility.

If you have a belly but have less body fat than the national average, then it may be that your ovaries have been producing a lot of excess protein at this stage. If you are particularly overweight or obese, then you may actually be experiencing some kind of metabolic syndrome, which can have a huge impact on the functioning of your ovaries.

Another way to try to increase your body fat is to take part in weight training. Exercise has been shown to increase the amount of body fat in women. One study showed that doing weight training for 30 days, for women with a body mass index of 25 to 35 had an effect of increasing body fat by 12% (from 10% to 14%). Women who did not participate in weight training but kept their body fat in check maintained 12% of their initial body fat, which was a bit stronger than
