Stay Healthy

Weight management, exercise, medications, and the workplace are major factors in the reproductive health of a patient. Studies show that fertility rates are decreased in women and men when they are either very thin or obese, don't exercise properly, are not aware of harmful medications, and are exposed to workplace hazards.
