That’s the surprising findings from a recent study which suggest women with gum disease can take over seven months to conceive compared to the usual five months. It seems that poor oral health can be as bad for your chances of conceiving as obesity and can delay conception by up to two months. The the main cause is the inflammation caused by gum disease which can set off a chain of reactions capable of damaging the body’s normal workings. Peridontal disease has also been linked to heart disease, type 2 disease, miscarriage and poor sperm quality in men. It seems the message here is to get flossing, whether you are trying to have a baby or just trying to stay healthy.
