    Exercise and Your Ability to Conceive

    When you exercise like you're supposed to -- 30 minutes, most days -- it shouldn't affect your ability to have a baby. But doing too much or too little might have an impact, says WebMD guest expert Hyacinth Nicole Browne, MD.

    Your body needs a certain amount of fat to reproduce. But too much body fat can cause problems with ovulation. The goal is to be smart about exercise. Have any questions? Browne suggests you talk to your doctor.

    How much do you exercise? Do you find that you tend to do too much -- or too little?
