The Right Type of Exercise Improves IVF Success Rates by 95%

Exercise Improves IVF Success Rates

A new study shows that exercise improves IVF success rates by 95%!

It is often said that if exercise was a drug it would be hailed as a miracle pill and everyone would take it. 

The reason for this is that it has been shown to decrease our risk of developing numerous serious conditions like heart disease and cancer and improves health and quality of life generally.

I will do a more detailed post on this in the future but for now let’s have a quick look at the new study.

IVF and Exercise: the Study

Researchers in China carried out a “meta-analysis” (a review of a collection of previous studies) to find out whether or not exercise improves IVF success rates.

These results are hugely significant. To be able to increase success rates like this simply by exercising is incredible. 

Anyone who is thinking about undergoing IVF and does not currently exercise at this level should seriously consider increasing their activity levels.

There is a note of caution to sound here: some studies have shown that vigorous exercise (exercise done at high intensity or excessive duration) can actually harm IVF success rates. 

It is important not to go over the top. 

Any exercise programme should only be commenced with your doctor’s consent and, given the potential benefits, it is well worth discussing the matter with him.
