Excercise and falling pregnant

Hi Doc,

Is it true that excercising a lot e.g road running reduces ones chances of falling pregnant?

Thanx.

Bubu.

Hi Bubu

Only if your weekly distances are massive, and there are other precipitating factors, like poor diet.

The world's best marathon runners don't struggle, and those are women who are running upward of 180km per week - 3 hours a day. So no, the kinds of running that most of us do don't affect our chances of falling pregnant.

The key is diet though, and that's something that is often linked to exercise, particularly in women with low body weight as well.

Good luck
