It's common knowledge that exercising and maintaining a healthy diet are key to keeping healthy. However there is little research as to whether exercise can help with In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) or not.
Moderate exercise helps
Strenuous exercise (such as running or other high impact activities) decreased the likelihood of IVF success. If you do need to exercise during IVF, it's best to focus on lower impact exercises. It all boils down to being as healthy as you possibly can to improve your chances of successful IVF. Being unhealthy, whether you're overweight, underweight, can all contribute to having an unsuccessful experience with IVF.
Instead, women who are trying to conceive should focus on moderation and can achieve this by engaging in low-impact exercises such as walking or easy yoga, having low stress levels, and maintaining a healthy and nutritious diet .
This is all common sense advise - but because you are going through IVF, this is a great opportunity to optimise your health, because you likely to be highly motivated!
