Anti-Obesity Drugs for Obese Women Planning Pregnancy. In Mahmood, TA & Arulkumaran, S (Eds.), Obesity: a Ticking Time Bomb for Reproductive Health , p. 423-430. London; Waltham, MA : Elsevier, 2012 How to Cite?
AbstractObesity remains an important risk factor for women planning for pregnancy because of its adverse effects on reproductive outcome. In individuals who experience difficulty in reducing significant weight with lifestyle intervention alone, the use of anti-obesity drugs can be an adjunct. Orlistat and metformin are the options currently, and their use is probably safe for women planning for pregnancy. These weight loss interventions should precede any planned conception or fertility treatment.
