IVF and Exercise

Postby JayLB » Sun Jan 13, 2019 7:07 am

Hey All,

I am on CD 4 of IVF medications. I am currently on 150 MG Menopur, 75 MG Gonal - F. Nurses and Pharmacists advised exercise is to be extremely limited, but I find that difficult as I Am person who attends the gym 5 or 6 days a week, with heavy weights :mrgreen: and moderate level cardio on Arc Machine.

I worry that not doing my normal, will send my body into a state of, 'whats happening here?'. I also worry about losing the muscle mass I have gotten. And gaining weight, as I am most likely have PCOS. :omg:

Any help would be greatly appreciated. TIA

If your body is used to exercise than you shouldn’t just stop exercising but towards the end when your follies are grown you should take it easier,listen to your body.
Good luck!

Ive been on meds 3 days and can already feel my ovaries more than before. Guess follicles are growing. But i am so used to being active, that just sitting on my buns feels wrong.
I will reconnect with my nursing team again aswell.
