After ovarian stimulation, if the woman is undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment, the next step is follicular puncture. The puncture is a simple procedure, but it is recommended that a certain amount of rest be taken to avoid certain complications.

Subsequently, after the embryo transfer, the recommendation is to lead a normal life, but without making great physical efforts or intense sports. For this reason, the intensity of the exercise should be adapted and it should be of low intensity.

In addition, care should be taken with water sports such as swimming, since immersion baths should be avoided for at least one week after the transfer.

Finally, if pregnancy has been achieved, it will be possible to do exercise adapted to this special new stage that the woman is going through.

However, it is always advisable to consult with the specialist as to whether exercise can be performed at the specific stage of the woman's pregnancy.
