STRESS AND FERTILITY

Stress

The full connection between stress and fertility is still unknown, but studies suggest your stress level certainly plays a role in your ability to get pregnant. Pregnancy is far more likely to occur for couples that feel happy and relaxed versus those who feel anxious and tense. For instance, reducing stress might help enhance the proteins in the uterine lining that contribute to implantation. Decreased stress may also increase blood flow to the uterus, which influences conception as well. Ultimately, how stress impacts fertility is individual to each woman. Let’s address specific ideas you can use to decrease your stress level.
