The researchers from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology say “superwoman work-outs” can increase the risk of having fertility problems three-fold.

The study showed that younger women were more vulnerable to having such problems.

The researchers found that those who exercised most, a quarter couldn’t conceive during their first year of attempting compared to the national average of seven per cent. They suggest that extreme exercising deprives the body of energy needed for a successful pregnancy.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
