Unhealthy fat, cholesterol linked with lower fertility

Young women with unhealthy levels of fat in their blood before pregnancy are more likely to only have one or no child at all, finds a study explaining the previously observed association between lower fertility and heart disease. Women with an "unhealthy" blood fat profile of high LDL ('bad') cholesterol, triglycerides, and a high triglyceride to HDL ('good') ratio, as well as low levels of HDL cholesterol, measured years before they conceived, were 20 to 100 per cent more likely to be pregnant only once. High levels of LDL, total cholesterol and obesity were also associated with greater odds of having no children.
