Is lack of exercise causes INFERTILITY?

Mask Fertility and Pregnancy

The causes of infertility are hard to pinpoint, however, there are several causes. When treating infertility, it is often said that we should lead a proper lifestyle.

This includes not only eating a well-balanced diet and refraining from smoking and drinking but also doing moderate exercise. So, does a lack of exercise actually lead to infertility?

In this article, we will discuss the relationship between pregnancy, childbirth, and exercise.

Lack of Exercise is One of the Causes of Infertility

Despite having a booming population of more than 100 million, the Philippines still has problems when it comes to infertility: one in 10 Filipinos suffers from it.

In fact, it has already been discovered that one of the reasons for the increase in the number of women undergoing infertility treatment is due to lack of exercise. Muscle weakness caused by lack of exercise not only affects the appearance of the body, such as sagging skin and lowered hips but also impairs blood circulation. Muscles have the important function of “circulating blood”.

Are the ovaries “left later”?

In order to send blood to each organ of the body, the blood circulation must be smooth. But if this power is low, the body will try to focus on sending blood to the vital organs, i.e. stomach, intestines, and other important organs. Since nourishment from food is more important than the uterus and ovaries, the less blood circulates, the later the blood supply to the reproductive organs.

If this happens, nutrients and oxygen will be in short supply and function will decline. Reduced blood flow can lead to reduced fertility and infertility… 

It is said that the ovaries are the most vulnerable part of a woman’s body. The ovaries are responsible for nurturing eggs, but if there is not enough blood flow, the eggs in the ovaries will age. It is said that eggs age with age, but the lack of blood flow due to lack of muscle strength accelerates the aging of eggs even more.

If you’re trying to get pregnant, “exercise”!

Moderate exercise is good for relieving stress and regulating your menstrual cycle and hormonal balance (hormonal balance depends on the food you eat, so we don’t recommend restricting your diet so much that your periods become irregular). Even if you are already skinny and don’t need to lose weight, exercise is something that women should definitely take up, because lack of muscle mass can lead to poor blood circulation.

We believe that the most important thing for infertility is to create an exercise habit.

By exercising regularly, you can stimulate the endocrine system (hormones) that nurture your eggs and bring your fertility to an optimal state. You don’t need to do any strenuous exercise, just a half-hour of exercise three to five times a week to get your breath back.

For example, just taking the stairs instead of the escalator is enough exercise. You can also move your body in your daily life by walking one station, riding a bicycle if you take the bus, or using the bathroom on a distant floor. “If you don’t have time to go to the gym, that’s just an excuse. Look for things you can do in your daily life.


Exercise is very important to improve infertility. You may be busy with your work or your life event, however, if you really want to get pregnant someday, it’s better to start your body as soon as possible!
