High levels of cholesterol can affect the health of people in many ways, and new research has shown that male and female fertility may be reduced if there is a high cholesterol. For this reason, if you’re looking for pregnancy should keep cholesterol in check.
And also obesity, which often is associated with a poor diet that increases cholesterol levels at the same time. Let us remember that “bad cholesterol” accumulates in the walls of arteries and form a plate which hinders the circulation of the blood that goes to the heart, increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease.

The study was conducted by researchers from the Instituto Eunice Kennedy Shriver of the United States and has been published in the magazine “Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism”.
Is titled “Lipid Concentrations and Couple Fecundity: The LIFE Study” (“concentrations of lipids and fertility of the couple: the LIFE study” or ‘ Longitudinal Investigation of Fertility and the Environment’ (the LIFE was designed to determine the relationship between fertility and exposure to environmental chemicals and life style)).
It took data from 501 couples who planned to have a baby and who provided blood tests for researchers measured cholesterol levels.
They proved that those couples whose two members have hypercholesterolemia took longer to achieve pregnancy than those who had normal cholesterol figures. When single was the woman that had high cholesterol figures, happened the same thing and in the conclusions of the study, the authors point out the importance of these levels both members of the couple.
Therefore the cholesterol is another element that needs to be controlled and monitored in preconception visits, since it could interfere with that woman would be pregnant. Best to avoid it, a diet healthy, rich in moisturizing, fruits and vegetables, low in trans fat and exercise regularly.
It is of the first study that has found that cholesterol is important to fertility (although previously suspected), regardless of other factors, such as age, weight, race, education… So you know, we must lead a healthy lifestyle even before pregnancy and this topic is (also) thing two.
