protect intimate areas during exercise. This can be achieved by wearing padded workout shorts, showering quickly after workouts to reduce sweat build-up, and wearing workout gear made with breathable fabric.
It is important to run your routine by your obstetrician once you are pregnant, to ensure you aren’t overdoing things.
A recent University of Massachusetts Amherst study showed that high-level exercise is linked to very early pregnancy loss in women with a history of miscarriage. “The implantation period may represent a time of vulnerability, when high-strain activity could pose a risk for subclinical, or very early pregnancy loss,” stated scientists. They added that the risk of early pregnancy loss is twice as high in women who are highly active.
If you are thinking of getting pregnant in the future, engaging in moderate-to-vigorous activity on a daily basis is a good idea. Doing so can help you reduce your risk of gestational diabetes - a condition that is dangerous both for babies and mothers.
Always run your routine by a doctor once you are pregnant to ensure that you continue to benefit from exercise without any complications.
