A Ghanaian doctor, Dr Alex Kwame Anipam Twum Boafo, has explained how the lifestyle of women can affect their fertility.
Speaking on Joy News’ Personality Profile that Newshuntermag.com has come across, he stated that the lifestyle that women live can have an effect on the reproduction of eggs in their womb.
Dr Twum Boafo said alcohol consumption, Body Mass Index (BMI) and other things can affect a person’s reproductive system.
“Your lifestyle can impact how you produce your eggs. So for instance, if you get involved in a lot of alcohol and stuff like that it may impact the way you produce the eggs.
“If your BMI is out of range it may impact the way you produce your eggs. Those are lifestyles that can impact your life,” he revealed.
As women are ageing, he implored them to check their biological clocks as they age.
“Also, run a biological clock which is to say that at certain ages your ability to produce the eggs. If all the system is correct age is also relevant and the best age for women to get pregnant is between 25 and 35.
“Before then, yes you can get pregnant but after 35 your ability begin to go down and mid-40s you may not produce adequate eggs in case you get pregnant. But these days there is IVF that can overcome those problems,” the doctor further stated.
