Is body mass index a requirement for embryo adoption treatment?

No, it is always convenient to have a normal BMI but it is not a requirement to be able or not to receive donated embryos.

The BMI is a mathematical formula that associates the mass and the height of an individual, it is calculated dividing the weight, always expressed in Kg, between the height, expressed in meters squared.

The patient should know that if she has a normal BMI (18.5-24.9) she has a better chance of pregnancy; whereas if you have a very high or low BMI it will decrease your chances of pregnancy. However, patients with BMI outside the normal range achieve term pregnancies.
