Physical activity is an immensely important part of general health and a healthy lifestyle – it also happens to have an affect on fertility. No matter what you find most important to keep tabs on presently, you’ll want to track your activity with Ovia.
How can activity affect fertility?
Although activity level does not necessarily directly contribute to an increase or a decrease in fertility, the amount of activity or exercise a person gets is often representative of their overall health, which is very much tied to fertility. For individuals who are TTC, this may be of particular importance. Individuals who are overweight are more likely to experience difficulties conceiving, so it’s important to get a sense of a person’s activity level to determine their best course of action for getting pregnant. Also, people whose workouts are overly strenuous may notice problems with infertility due to hormonal changes brought on by intense physical stress, though this is certainly an extreme case. Tracking your activity can help you identify if there are any lifestyle changes you need to make to improve your chances of conception.
