The 'Ozempic Baby' Trend: What You Need to Know

The 'Ozempic Baby' Trend: What You Need to Know

If there has ever been an Rx medication that has received such sensationalism for its off label use the way Ozempic has then we have never heard of it. Weight loss is big business in the USA, as nowhere else in the world is obesity a problem the way it is here in North America. Ozempic may be classed as a blood sugar control medication for diabetics, but it is in demand because of its ability to promote weight loss. But what if we were to tell you that the medication may also be leading to an Ozempic baby being conceived?

Did you know you can buy Ozempic from Canada and save upto 80% compared to local pharmacies in USA? Check our prices and availability now.

Put that into your search bar and you will see we are not just making things up here. It seems that using Ozempic can increase a woman’s chance of becoming pregnant. It is too earlier to add fertility aid to the off-label uses for Ozempic in the way it has happened for weight loss, but there is definitely smoke indicating a fire here and women who are struggling with infertility are definitely going to be taking notice. There is a connection between Ozempic and fertility, and what is interesting about it is the fact it can go one of two ways for women.  

Does Ozempic affect fertility? It sure can, and especially when a woman is taking birth control medication, and the connection can also be a factor when a woman is hoping to lose weight while also being able to conceive at the same time. Now to be sure a woman who is using oral contraceptive is going to be both shocked and maybe not so pleasantly surprised if she is pregnant because of Ozempic. On the flip side if she wanted to become pregnant and Ozempic is what makes that happen for her it is probably going to be very well received.  

One of two types of outcomes to be sure, so what we will do here is look at the physio-pharmacological workings of all this and how an Ozempic baby may happen.  

Not Quite Enough  

Ozempic and fertility are a match when one of two things happen; the woman’s birth medication fails to work because not enough of it has been absorbed into the bloodstream, or her ovulation is restored and enhanced because she is moved towards a lower and healthier body weight. It is by one of these two ways that Ozempic baby can happen. 

Let us start with the ineffective birth control scenario. A part of how Ozempic promotes weight loss is by slowing the rate at which food leaves the stomach. This slows gastric emptying, and it helps with weight loss but also means medication may not be absorbed properly through the gut lining. That may mean there is not quite enough of the active Rx ingredient to prevent the egg being released from the ovary. If that egg then gets fertilized, well, there you go and just like that she may have one of the Ozempic baby on the way.  

That would be counterproductive for sure in this instance, so maybe IUD birth control is better for women using Ozempic. The other way that an Ozempic baby may happen is more natural and biologically straightforward. When women lose weight and are in better health because of it they start to ovulate more naturally, and a better-quality egg may come from the ovum. In some instances, this will mean that she gets pregnant despite struggling with it for a long time, and it is all attributable to the effects of Ozempic.
