Does exercise affect your period or ovulation cycle?

I wanted to know if exercise will affect my period or ovulation?  I recently have had abnormal periods due to loss of a pregnancy at 20 weeks with a d&c performed.  My first period came back 35 days after surgery and the second just came back the other day, 47 days after the previous period.  I have waited the treen months like the doctor told meand we are for sure ready to start trying again.  I like to get on the treadmill and exercise, but I am scared that it will affect my cycle.  I did not know that if alot of exercise, where I would sweat alot can cause my period or ovulation to be even more screwed up or skipped.  I have heard that alot of heavy exercising can delay your period, I did not know how true this was, does anyone know? I do not want to risk skipping any more cycles and ovulation cause I want to ttc as sson as possible.  i am confused????

When they say heavy exercising they mean really heavy...as in athlete-level training.  Regular exercise shouldn't have much effect on AF, besides helping with cramps and pms, especially if you are used to exercising already.  Dramatic changes will effect it.

I've heard that excessive exercise such as training for a marathon or something could affect your ovulation.  I don't think regular exercise would.
