Will having a gastric bypass affect my ability to get pregnant?
A gastric bypass should have a positive impact on pregnancy and childbirth. Many women with obesity suffer from subfertility as a result of their weight. However, as you lose weight, your fertility increases and you are much more likely to be able to conceive. It is important that you are aware of this effect if you want to avoid getting pregnant.
Additionally, losing weight will result in a significant reduction in the risk of complications during pregnancy and childbirth. Your weight loss will allow you to be much more active both during and after pregnancy. This will ensure that you can get maximum enjoyment out of what should be a very happy time in your life.
