Have no idea but would be very happy to read the replies you get. I went swimming... but had a m/c and don't know what to think. Swimming always feels like it's working my abdominal muscles so I worry...
I was told no swimming for 12 weeks after IVF as there is a risk of infection where they have punctured transvaginally after EC, same for baths. I think swimming when pregnant is a good thing as it is a gentle exercise and they have ante natal aerobics and classes for pregnant mums. Good luck
You know, there is so much conflicting information around that some say do something others say don't. My advice (after recurring loss) is that if there is anything that may cause doubt in your mind, don't do it. That way even if it is totally unconnected you will not torment yourself as to that being the cause in case of something going wrong later.
It might seem over cautious, but not worth beating yourself up for at a later date.
After IVF i was told not to swim until/unless we'd seen a heartbeat on scan. that didn't happen.
when i fell pregnant naturally two months laer i was told no problem to swim and we did see a heartbeat very early, at 6 weeks, so i swam on our holiday immediately following that.
i don't really swim though, more like splashed around...
With all this conflicting feedback it's hard to know what to think/do, isn't it? On the day of embryo transfer I asked the clinic about s*x and swimming and was told: no s*x for a week, no swimming for 2 weeks. Got my BFP, started swimming again and then got m/c.
It's so hard not to be physically active during ICSI/2ww/pregnancy because you don't get that helpful endorphine high you so need during all this stress. Not to mention, I've put on loads of weight in my 2 cycles and don't feel happy in my body...
