Metabolic syndrome (MS) is a clustering of cardiovascular disease risk factors. It is a major health challenge globally, with an increased prevalence in the developing world. Studies on its role on reproduction in Nigeria are currently sparse. This article therefore, examines current knowledge on metabolic syndrome and reproduction in Nigerians. Academic databases including PubMed as well as Google search engine were searched between 2012 and 2017 for metabolic syndrome in reproduction in Nigerian males and females. Current observations suggest that metabolic syndrome adversely affects reproduction.
