Is It Safe To Run While Trying To Become Pregnant?

Everything in moderation. It’s the age old adage that we hear used to describe everything, but there really is some truth to this long recommended advice. Especially when it comes to running and getting pregnant. Did you know that women who are intense runners have been shown to have some problems with keeping their periods regular, leading to difficulty getting pregnant? Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Periods in women who are very athletic can become irregular and sometimes even cease altogether, causing a lot of problems for women who want to get pregnant. On the other side of the spectrum, women who are overweight or obese can also have trouble getting pregnant. So, what is the answer, you ask? Moderation. Everything in moderation.

Cut down on running

If you are a runner who is having trouble keeping your menstrual cycle regular, you might want to cut down on your running while you are trying to conceive, in order to help regulate your periods and give yourself a better chance of conceiving. If your periods have become irregular or absent altogether, you should dramatically cut down on your running and seek the advice of a doctor who can help give you tips for getting pregnant while still remaining physically active.

Ovulate with no period

You can still ovulate without your period though; it will be harder to tell when it is time to ovulate. You might want to invest in an over the counter ovulation predictor kit to help you determine when you are ovulating, especially if your periods are irregular.

Once you are able to get your periods back on track you should have no problems getting pregnant, and there is no evidence to show that you will have long term fertility issues that can not be reversed once your periods return to normal.

Moderation is the key

Staying active and fit is very important, and can help you to get pregnant, as long as it is in moderation. You have to keep yourself somewhere in the middle. Not too lethargic and lazy, but you can’t overdo it with the exercise and fitness routine either.

Your doctor can give you advice on whether or not your fitness routine is too much for your body to handle on top of trying to conceive, and can help you decide whether or not you need to cut back. You should definitely seek the help of a doctor if you are not ovulating according to an over the counter ovulation predictor kit or if you have been trying to conceive for a year or more with no luck.
