We are TTC and I just joined a yoga class.

I haven't been in shape for a while plus I am less than half a year postpartum so my body is still sore from lack of stomach muscles. Should I not be doing these exercises while TTC? Will it decrease my chances of becoming pregnant again?

  • I agree that it would likely help, if anything. Better health, learning to pay attention to your body, to relax, to be patient.

  • Your Dr would know best how to answer this for you as your Dr knows your body and history best.

  • I'm not sure what TTC is. But I do know that your doctor would be your best bet. And I have never heard of yoga NOT helping someone physically/mentally/emotionally.

  • Oooohhh. Trying To Conceive, duh. I would say it's unlikely it would decrease your chances. Often times unhealthy people don't even have their period so that's proof right there that the better you treat your body the more likely you will be blessed with getting pregnant.

  • It should help if anything. It helps relieve stress and will help keep you healthy.
