When it’s taking you longer than you expected to conceive a child, you may begin looking at your lifestyle.
In fact, the right amount and the type of exercise you perform may actually enhance your fertility and improve your quest to conceive.
Always let your doctor know what kind of workouts you favor most, how often and how vigorously you work out.
For many women in the overweight-obese category on a BMI chart, losing just 10% of their body weight will improve fertility.
Being underweight also impacts your fertility. Weighing in under the normal BMI classification can interfere with your menstrual cycle, stopping ovulation.
Exercise can help you in your efforts to achieve a healthy body weight. Whether you’re over-, or under- weight you will benefit from moderate exercise.
Key points to keep in mind:
Bicycling for 30 minutes few times a week is a wonderful way to get your workout in.
Yoga can be a phenomenal way to relax help you deal with the stress of infertility. Just don’t push your body too far.
Pilates is another beneficial way to stay healthy and improve your fertility.
Swimming is an excellent choice for those just starting a fitness routine.
Think about how much physical activity you should do in relation to your current exercise routines, as well as your Body Mass Index(BMI). For example, if you have a high BMI and are planning to get pregnant, exercise may improve chances of conception by helping you lose weight. However, it’s important to make sure you don’t take it too far and become underweight. As mentioned earlier, a BMI that is too low is just as bad for fertility as one that is too high.
If you have always been moderately active – continue to exercise at the same level to stay healthy. And if you’ve not been active before, start to build up your level of activity little by little from now!
Always remember, To listen to your body,Stay hydrated And Modify the intensity of your workout accordingly.
