Does strenuous exercise affect fertility?

After my last ectopic pregnancy over a year ago (which was the second one that I'd had), we've been struggling to conceive. I'm due to have some tests done to investigate my remaining fallopian tube, and find out what my options are.

But, to add more angst to the mix, I'm suddenly wondering if strenuous exercise can affect fertility?

I'm working out 4-5 times a week. Basically, picked it back up again as a way to focus on something positive.

I think (but I may be wrong) that it depends more on your bmi and body fat percentage. If that's within normal range then you should be ok

Yes it all depends on healthy fats
