Iron intake reduces risk of infertility

According to a recent study, there was a significant reduction in risk of infertility in women who took iron supplements// when compared to those who did not.

This study is published in the November issue of Obstetrics & Gynecology. Menstruation, pregnancy and lactation deprives a woman of her iron supplies, hence women of childbearing age are at the highest risk of iron deficiency.

Chavarro, a research fellow in the department of nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health. "Women should also inform their physician if they plan to boost their iron intake, " he added.
