Can I do sports after the embryo transfer?

By Rut Gómez de Segura M.D. (gynecologist).
Last Update: 02/21/2022

In the days following the transfer, it is important to avoid activities that involve lifting excessive weights and require significant abdominal pressure (for example: heavy shopping, carrying suitcases...).

Intense physical exercise such as swimming, running, spinning, aerobics, etc. should also be avoided until the pregnancy test has been performed.

It is normal to feel some abdominal discomfort, such as pre-menstrual pain, without this meaning a better or worse evolution of the cycle. Sometimes these discomforts may be accompanied by light bleeding, which should not be a sign of alarm.
