Body Mass Index (BMI) is a number calculated from a person's weight and height. BMI provides a reliable indicator of body fat for most people, and is used to screen for weight categories that may lead to health problems, including infertility.
The standard weight status categories associated with BMI ranges for adults are shown in the following table:
|18.5 – 24.9||Normal|
|25.0 – 29.9||Overweight|
|30.0 and Above||Obese|
