Optimising male fertility after bariatric surgery

Updated: Sep 7, 2022

Infertility is on the increase, with almost half the cases linked to the male partner.

Obesity can affect fertility in a number of ways – hormonally, physically and psychologically. This is why losing weight is commonly recommended in fertility treatment.

Weight loss helps to improve the quality of your sex-life and increases levels of male reproductive hormones.

Your recommended vitamin and mineral supplements, as well as the quality of your diet, can make a difference to your sperm health and your ability to start a family.
