    I weigh 50 kg.

    Is it important to reduce weight in order to get pregnant?

    Dear Emma,

    50 kg would certainly not be considered overweight for an adult woman.

    Being very underweight or overweight can cause problems in conception and pregnancy. For example, being underweight unfortunately increases a woman's chance of having a miscarriage. Being overweight makes it more likely that a woman will suffer from gestational diabetes which can cause problems in pregnancy.

    What matters more than your weight is your body mass index (i.e. your weight relative to your height). You are considered to be of a healthy weight if your body mass index is between 18.5 and 24.9.

    What is your height please?

    It is important to eat a balanced diet when you are trying to conceive and exercise regularly.

    Does this help with your question?

    Best wishes,
    LJ
