BACKGROUND: World Health Organization has labeled Obesity as epidemic and leads to substantial morbidity/mortality. This applied evidence-based review provides a rationale for the diagnosis and treatment of obesity in adults by providing test characteristics for the Body Mass Index (BMI). AIM OF THE STUDY: Evaluate the effectiveness of diet and exercise versus Obesity control drugs on obesity control and Identify the benefits of obesity control on the women's reproductive health (at childbearing age). SUBJECT AND METHODS: Purposive sample consists of 180 women were recruited to conduct the present study, ninety women using diet and exercise and ninety using obesity control drug to control obesity. The women in the sample were recruited from obesity control centers. All women in the sample were recruited at the beginning of their obesity control program and followed up for 6 months. An interview questioner was used to collect data for each woman in the sample. The questioner includes the Sociodemographic data, medical history, menstrual history and obstetrical history. Other items about demographic characteristics, present health status and health status indicators [Body Mass Index (BMI), blood pressure, and blood analysis for blood glucose, cholesterol and hemoglobin that assessed Twice, once before they start the obesity control program and the second time six months later. RESULTS; there were significant decrease in the mean BMI of both groups, but there was significant decrease in the mean of BMI of diet and exercise group than Obesity control drugs group (p=0.00). The obesity controlling drugs group had more side effects that the diet and exercises group. The side effects include Fainting, General weakness, Exhaustion, Headache, Nervousness. CONCLUSION. Weight control using diet and exercises was more effective than weight control using obesity control drugs in reducing weight, and has less side effect on women in reproductive age.
