Can Women Exercise During Ovarian Stimulation?

Ovarian stimulation is another important process for women who receive infertility treatment. It is essential for women to take good care of themselves.


Whether exercising is fine or not depends on the period of ovarian stimulation. It is totally fine to exercise before the stimulation process.

However, if you are in the process of ovarian stimulation, you may do some mild exercise that does not contain a lot of movement. In addition, it should be a low-impact exercise.

This is because, during ovarian stimulation, especially those with many eggs, the eggs will be stimulated and grow due to the exercise, such as shaking or running. The small ovarian will expand in size.

As a result, there is a possibility that the ovarian torsion will occur. Some may experience ovarian rupture due to the size of the eggs, resulting in abdominal pain or bleeding. As a consequence, the patient may need an emergency surgery or ovarian surgery.
