There is no secret about the fact that exercising on a regular basis and maintaining a healthy diet are both very important factors to remain healthy. However, there isn’t much research to indicate whether exercise actually helps with IVF or not. The one thing that can be said with certainty is that moderate exercise helps.
Take a look at why following a regular but moderate exercise routine may help:
The impact of strenuous exercise on IVF success
Harvard Medical School Researchers had conducted a detailed study on how exercise and IVF are connected; surprisingly, they found that excessive exercise can reduce IVF success rates. They found that strenuous exercises such as running or any other high impact activities reduced the chances of IVF success.
If you are doing IVF and want to exercise during that period, it’s a good idea to concentrate on doing low impact exercises. The thing to keep in view here is that being healthy will help increase your chances of IVF success. And conversely, being unhealthy (overweight/underweight), will contribute and have a negative impact on IVF.
If women who are doing IVF, focus on exercising moderately and involve themselves in activities like yoga, it can help reduce their stress levels. It’s also important that they maintain a healthy and nutritious diet. Just to summarize:
When you look at this, you are probably thinking, all of this sounds like common sense advice; but since you are doing IVF, you should take this as an opportunity to also optimize your health- you will be very motivated to do so, after all!
