Obesity is a leading cause of infertility in women. Infertility refers generally to the inability of a person biologically to contribute toward conception. Infertility can also refer to the circumstances of a woman who is incapable to carry a pregnancy to full term (Robert, 2001). There is an enormous list of biological causes of women infertility, some, which may be treated through medical intervention. Women, highly fertile, under go a natural period where they are fertility during ovulation and after, and they’re naturally infertile throughout the rest of the menstrual cycle. A number of fertility awareness techniques are used to discern when these alterations occur by tracking changes in cervical mucus or basal body temperature. Chances of women to conceive include being under or overweight for her respective age. The female fertility goes down drastically after aging 35 (NIHCE, 2009; World Health Organization, 2000; Carroll et al, 2006). Mostly it results from several factors in combination and yet other times having no clear cause established.
Though it is a common complication in both men and women, obesity leads Gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD) complications (Carroll et al, 2006; Goldenberg, 2008; Peter, 2005). It is also the leading cause of gastric reflux disease, acid reflux disease and gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GORD) complications that are extreme in women (NIHCE, 2009). These are remarkably chronic symptoms and develop to the severity in women leading to mucosal damage because of abnormal reflux in the human esophagus. Women who use a lot of energy and have a higher metabolic rate require a high appetite, which is usually compromised by obesity that leads to changes in the functioning of the esophagus and complications in the stomach. As a result, obesity takes a first hand as the major cause of loss of appetite in women (Robert, 2001).
Obesity causes stretch marks in women. Stretch marks in dermatology refer to a scarring on the skin that develops with an off-color hue (Carroll et al, 2006; Goldenberg, 2008; Peter, 2005). The development of the scars results from tearing of the dermis. Obesity leads to an increase in body fat and increase at a higher rate in women leading to the tearing of the dermis resulting from overextension of the skin (NIHCE, 2009; World Health Organization, 2000; Carroll et al, 2006).
Another principal cause that leads to obesity is the decrease in metabolic rate efficiency resulting after childbirth. It is the case with women experiencing having children for the first time. The inefficient metabolism resulting from complications during pregnancy leads to many calories ingesting as unused from the human body (Carroll et al, 2006; Goldenberg, 2008; Peter, 2005). Pregnancy in most cases kicks the body in high gear; it changes the metabolism all of a sudden. The food the woman consumes provides for two people and not as the earlier case of one. Therefore, the body extracts calories from the consumed food. It is never serious until after childbirth when these calories still maintain in the body therefore, leading to obese symptoms in women. A change in eating habits is a particularly common cause of obesity in pregnant women.
There are stages in which a woman reduces the activity level, therefore, leading to accumulation of fats. During pregnancy, after menopause and in the late stage of maturation, the woman ceases to be overly active (NIHCE, 2009; World Health Organization, 2000; Carroll et al, 2006). The reduced activity level means that calories consumed in the body accumulate and concert into fats. The later deposition of the fats in the body causes obesity in the later stages after its development. In reality, motherhood in women, seriously affects their respective ability so sustain their social life therefore, has to reduce the physical activeness (Robert, 2001).
A lot of research has developed in the field of obesity but like many scholars do concentrate on obesity as affecting both sexes. There is a need for future prospective research to examine the relative predictive ability of the development of this discussed complication in women resulting from obesity (World Health Organization, 2000). The researches need to narrow down the study to specific complications giving a detailed coverage of how they correlate with obesity and the respective effects they have on women. The studies also needs to give specific recommendations bringing them out clearly on what women need to focus on when it comes to health matters (NIHCE, 2009).
The issues of morbidity and mortality resulting from diabetics are more technical and have a positive significance in women. It is indispensable in future practice of the respective researchers to develop a correlation of these two key elements with obesity. Few reports indicate the rates of the two elements resulting from obesity and many medic reports concentrate on other aspects of which this one is of enormous significance. With a exceptional research and practice to determine how serious the complication is concerning risking human health, the later analysis will be specific on the urgency to promote measures in controlling obesity (Carroll et al, 2006; Goldenberg, 2008; Peter, 2005).
It is apparent that obesity is a complication and a disease in women deadly enough to cause death. Even with many researches conducted on diabetics, concentration still lacks in women obesity (NIHCE, 2009; World Health Organization, 2000; Carroll et al, 2006). Handling the issues has been lightly with regard to women obesity. It is more of a general term in men and women therefore, reducing the level of perception of the disease as affecting women in serious levels (Goldenberg, 2008). The literature available on obesity in women still fails in pronouncing the urgency to handle the disease in women and do not provide applicable measures for control (NIHCE, 2009). The causes, rates, consequences and effects are still generalized in both sexes. With through studies and proper applications of recommendations from this study, prospective handling of obesity in women would be ideal and a long fetched solution (Carroll et al, 2006; Goldenberg, 2008; Peter, 2005). Globally, obesity continues to hit the women as the highly vulnerable sex because of the irregular hormonal imbalances and other complications in hormone release. The efforts applied by respective medics are okay but require a boost in relevance to handling the issue with a prerogative approach (Robert, 2001).
