Obese Women Have Less Sex, More Unplanned Pregnancies

According to a new study released by the British Medical Journal, obese women (with a BMI of 30 or higher) have less sex, but more unplanned pregnancies.

Not only that, but the study found that obese women are less likely to use consistent real contraceptives such as the Pill, and more likely to use less reliable methods, such as withdrawl.

It’s not just obese women either – also obese men. The study showed that obese men were 10 times more likely to catch an STD than those who are not obese.

What’s the correlation between body size and pregnancy rate? More importantly, why did CBS choose this picture for the article?

Some sort of yoga pose? A strong gust of wind? WHY?

Ladies of any size, remember that doctors are a wealth of information, and when you see yours, please ask about birth control, even if you aren’t sexually active.

    YES for birth control! There should be no shame in being on it. Sadly, I doubt that will ever totally happen….
