However, there are some instances when women who are runners have a more difficult time getting pregnant than those who are not avid runners. One of the reasons for this is due to the fact that excessive exercise can affect a woman’s hormones and make it harder for her to become pregnant.

Also, women who are underweight, also have a hard time becoming pregnant as well. Because of this, it is suggested that you maintain a healthy weight when you are trying to conceive. Some women who are avid runners find this difficult because their love for running has made them underweight.

It is best to talk to your doctor at a preconception appointment in order to determine the best things that you can do to increase your chances of becoming pregnant. At this appointment, you can talk to your doctor about your lifestyle so that you can determine if you need to make any changes to it. For the most part, runners should not have any less chance of becoming pregnant than those who rely on a different form of exercise.
