Vitamin D increases the probability of getting pregnant

According to recently published research, vitamin D would be effective for fertility and for completing pregnancies.

Recognized as effective in combating childhood obesity, vitamin D prior to conception would promote the likelihood of getting pregnant naturally and having a baby after a first miscarriage, according to findings from a study published in the medical journal The Lancet.

The researchers conducted a study with 1,200 women. The results of the study found that women who had good vitamin D levels before conception had a 10% higher probability of getting pregnant and 15% of safely bringing to end their pregnancy, compared to women whose rates were lower than 30 ng / ml.

They also found that among women who were able to get pregnant, each 10 ng / ml increase in vitamin D was linked to a 12% lower probability of losing the child during pregnancy.

If the results of this study are encouraging, clinical trials should be conducted to determine whether vitamin D supplementation of pregnant women at risk could increase their probabilities of completing their pregnancy.
