Introduction: Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is the main form of vitamin D in the body. It is the form produced in the skin, and it can be found in some food and nutritional supplements. Prescription vitamin D is vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol). Objectives of the study: The main objective of the study is to analyze the role of Vit-D deficiency in female infertility. Methodology of the study: This cross sectional study was conducted at Lahore general hospital, Lahore during 2019. There were 70 females which was selected for study. By collecting data from these patients we find the role of Vit-D deficiency in female infertility. In these patients, levels of vitamin D were done. Out of total 70 infertile females, 45 were found to have VDD. Results: In vitamin D deficient cases, the mean for vitamin D was higher and AMH was lower. In vitamin D deficient controls, the mean for vitamin D was 4.85 ± 3.02 and AMH was 3.47 ± 2.59. On comparison, the vitamin D levels were lower in fertile than infertile females, which was significant. Conclusion: There was no correlation found between VDD and AMH levels in both the infertile and fertile women groups. Prospective further studies are pressingly needed to confirm a causal relationship and to investigate the potential therapeutic benefits of vitamin D supplementation in this population.
