My husband and I are trying to conceive for about 5 to 6 months now. We both play badminton every weekend. And playing badminton has been my sport for 2 years now.

I also started doing some moderate weight training at home for 1 hour and walking or jogging for 30 minutes every after weight training. I don't know if because of playing badminton affects our chances to conceive. Thank you.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice. You can be pregnant when you are in treatment.

Yes that is birth control pills as if the length of menstrual cycle is more than 35 days then there is a chance of heavy bleeding in the next cycle so we use birth control pill for menstruation. Consult your gynecologist for further opinion.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice. At this point of time where you are planning for pregnancy and also have history of PCOS it is better for you to avoid playing badminton and doing any strenuous work out for that matter. You can do regular walking for 1 hour and have lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, and nutritious food. Seek an obstetrician to help you conceive since you have PCOS.

Take care.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice. Playing badminton does not adversely affect the chance of getting pregnant, in fact physical exercise is recommended for losing weight. Obesity is a known cause of PCOS.
You may continue to play badminton. Do consult your gynecologist for options on conceiving.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice. No, playing of badminton in no way will affect or disturb in getting pregnant. The problem you may be having for not getting pregnant is PCOS which is a condition which can lead to anovulatory cycles, irregular periods.

So please consult your gynaecologist and get treated for the PCOS, and she will give the treatment for induction of ovulation so that you can get pregnant soon.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
