Can I exercise at home during controlled ovarian stimulation?

By Silvia Azaña Gutiérrez B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 04/19/2022

During controlled ovarian stimulation, the woman can exercise (either at home or elsewhere) as long as it is of low intensity and avoids exertion and impact. It should be taken into account that, especially in the last days of ovarian stimulation, the ovaries are enlarged and there is a greater risk of ovarian torsion with sport.

Thus, the woman can, for example, choose to go for a walk.
