Hi there, does anyone know what the safe heart rate is for exercising while stimming? I'm due to start my 3rd round of IVF in a couple of weeks & have some weight to lose. I'm currently walking 1hr per day and want to try & keep walking once I start injections etc. I've bought a Polar watch to keep an eye on my heart rate but would love to know what others have been told??

IVF & Exercise??

There's no rules whilst stimming, but it's sensible to stick to less thab 140bpm post transfer. My clinic likes you to take it easy for 5 days post transfer

I was also told no rules when stimming, however advised against any exercise after transfer and before we knew the results of our cycle. The nurse told us anything that raises your heart rate also increases your temperature and we didn't want $10,000 'scrambled eggs'. I think they were being over cautious but for that kind of money over cautious is the only way to go. I didn't feel much like doing anything after EPU anyway.

My clinic advised up to 120bpm while doing a full stim cycle, and between transfer and BT. Other than that, up to 140bpm. I was told this was because they didn't want you to get overheated or have problems with bleeding or your ovaries while stimming, especially as EPU approaches. My clinic also said take it easy for a few days after EPU. I found it really hard to get used to at first, as before this, I was doing a boot camps, GRIT, Body Attack, Spin, Combat, etc and weights as well. I stuck to walking, pilates and yoga during stims and after transfer
Good luck for your cycle.

Sorry to hijack this thread. What kind of exercise would represent 140 bpm / 120 bpm? I'm currently doing PT and GRIT. Do I stop doing it when I start my medication? Or just after the transfer? Thank you!
