Female weight is an important factor in determining fertility and infertility . Physicians view weight in terms of body mass index or BMI. A BMI between 20 and 24.9 is considered normal for adults. A BMI between 25 and 29.9 is considered overweight. A BMI of 30 or more is considered obese. A number of studies have suggested that women who are obese have numerous reproductive problems.
