A vitamin found in sunlight as well as oily fish and eggs could improve women’s fertility, a study has found.
Researchers say vitamin D can help restore regular periods for women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which affects around one in five in the UK.
The study, by Yale University School of Medicine, involved 67 women, of whom 18 had problems ovulating. Of these, 13 had PCOS.
Only seven per cent were found to have normal vitamin D levels. The researchers said those with ovulation problems or PCOS were far more likely to be lacking in the vitamin than the others.
They suggested that women with these conditions should be given vitamin D, which can be taken as a supplement.
