A comparative study of vitamin D levels between infertile and fertile women in India
Objective: The objective of the study was to compare the levels of vitamin D in infertile and fertile women. Material and methods: A total of 150 women coming for treatment for infertility at a semi urban clinic were assessed for vitamin D deficiency. An equal number of women with spontaneous conception served as controls. T test was done to find the difference between the two groups. Result: The mean level of vitamin D in fertile women was 20.37ng/ml (±0.66) and in the infertile group was 16.58 ng/ml(± 0.46) but this difference was not statistically significant (P=0.06). Conclusion: Significant difference in serum vitamin D levels in fertile and infertile women could not be established.
