Hi Dr Sher. I had an embryo transfer last Saturday. I rested for 2 days and then went back to the gym on Monday and Tuesday and exercised as normal. This includes weightlifting. I have however been reading that lifting weight can hinder implantation. Do you know if this is the case? Many thanks, Natalie
Heavy lifting after embryo transfer
Exercising is not harmful BUT it is not wise to push yourself with over-demanding effort until a diagnosis of pregnancy can be made.Hopefully no harm was done!
