Introduction: Nowadays increasing number of obese women are seen attending infertility clinics. The objective of this study was to find out relationship of body mass index (BMI) on IVF cycles and to note of increased BMI. Materials and Methods: This was a retrospective study. All the patients undergoing IVF during the study period were divided in to three groups based on BMI − Group 1: <25 kg/m2; Group 2: 25 to 29.9 kg/m2; Group 3: ≥30 kg/m2. Records were analysed such as patient’s age, BMI, duration and cause of infertility, antral follicle count and hormonal profile. The total gonadotropins dose used, duration of stimulation, number of retrieved oocytes and pregnancy rate were noted. Results: A total of 151 women with non-donor IVF cycles were analysed. There were 58 patients in Group 1, 68 patients in Group 2 and 25 patients in Group 3. Laboratory parameters such as serum FSH, serum LH, serum AMH and serum E2 were compared. Serum AMH were found to be slightly higher in the obese group but was not statistically significant. Other hormones levels were comparable in the three groups. The total gonadotropin dose required for stimulation of follicles was found to be significantly higher in Group 3. The number of oocytes retrieved was similar in the three groups and so was the pregnancy rate. Conclusion: The present study suggests that BMI does not have significant impact on IVF cycles.
