Stuck for choices

At my early age, I was always in the oblivion. I was brought up in an athletic family but genetically fit. The risk of strenuous exercise that I did each morning I woke up blinded me to keep on so as the body can adapt. I had even to lose my primary virginity as a cycled the bicycle. I didn’t get the right person to counsel and guide me through the process. I was so naïve and very young to tell apart what was wrong or right. Little did I know the ups and downs that I would later come by later in life. At my early teen age, I started to experience my monthly periods. This time too often but sometimes it would take even two months for it to happen. Life became so tolerable on my side. I always thought it was normal and didn’t have the guts to ask my parents and colleagues. As I grew up and knew how to navigate through the whole cycle, I knew the truth and got curious. That’s when I realized I was experiencing abnormal periods. As time went on, I couldn’t ovulate at all. The condition worsened and I had to seek medical attention. On further analysis, the doctor learned that I couldn’t be able to hold an embryo in my uterus. “Is it genetic or is it the exercise that I do all days?”. That is the question that lingers in my mind. I am in a confusion now as I cannot conceive however much I try.

    Too much exercise is not good especially when you are in need of conception. Sometimes it can cause the upsurge of blood flow which seems to overwork the heart. The heart too tends to force blood flow to the body organs. This pressure affects the normal operation of the organs. In the end, it comes to affect the pregnancy. In some cases, a lady can even miscarry. So, it is advisable to do moderate exercises which won’t affect the cell metabolisms. I would thank you so much for sharing this information with us here. Many ladies won’t feel free to share and would keep it silent. They end up suffering in silence. All this can cause stress and anguish in the heart. All what I can advise you to do is to take it easy and be strong. I know it is very hard to contemplate all that you have been going through but just take courage. In this forum, we are here as a family to help each other with ideas. All that I would ask you to do is to first seek medical attention. Sometimes it becomes tricky and it can end up to infertility. I am very glad and will be ready to expect your response soon. Thank you!

    Hi there. Exercise is a great way to keep yourself fit and healthy. Despite that, it is important to remember that moderation is the key. Too much of a good thing can also prove to be detrimental. I hope this post won’t dissuade others from exercising. Instead, the only thing that is required is to pace yourself properly and take guidance from the experts. I hope you manage to find a solution to your problem.

    "That is an irony in our society. Us girls don't always feel comfortable talking to someone, even our parents. This is not as much of our fault as it is the people around us. Everyone seems to be so afraid to talk about the female issues in open. There also is a lack of awareness and education on this topic.

    Coming to your condition - honey, as it's from your childhood, you should seek an expert's advice. You should also not be ashamed of anything from now on and be very open about your condition."

    Hey Judithy. I am sorry to hear about your situation. I wish infertility wasn’t so common. It has made the lives of so many women difficult. That being said, I would like to say that exercise per se isn’t a bad thing. In fact, it is one of the best things you can do for your body. The main thing is to do maintain a balance. Not overdo it. Well, what’s done is done. You can’t change that. What you can do is figure out a solution. Have you talked to our family about this? What is your partner’s opinion in this? Adoption can be a viable option. Keep us updated.

    Hello there. What does your doctor say? Are your problems due to exercise? There might be some other cause too. Exercise is supposed to be a good thing. I can’t imagine it having such harmful consequences. I wish whatever the problem is, it is easily curable. You said you are from an athletic family. The rest of your family also exercises as much as you? Do they have similar problems? Looking forward to hearing your answers. I am very interested in finding out if there is a relationship between the two. As a healthcare student, the matter interests me greatly. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi there. I am sorry to hear about your condition. It sure seems as if you went overboard. You probably exercised way too much. Do not discount other causes just now though. There might be some other reason too. Infertility can be as a result of hundreds of reasons. You said you have been having irregular periods from a young age.This can be a symptom of many other conditions too. For example PCOS. That too can cause problems while trying to have a baby. I would suggest you try to single out the problems. That way you can effectively look for a cure. Good luck. Do let me know what you find out.

    Hi Judithy. It is sad that something as good as exercise has had such unpleasant outcomes. Are you sure though that exercise is to blame for this? Have you had a full evaluation done? That could be helpful. Anyway. Regardless of the cause, the important part is to focus on solutions. Fortunately, there are solutions. I found one too. In the form of surrogacy. Two years ago I went to a clinic that helped me with my infertility. They matched me up with an egg donor and surrogate mother. A little more than a year later, I had my first child. I believe surrogacy can help you too. Let me know if you want more details.
