Stress and problems with conception
In this article we describe one of the most wide-spread problems which make conception almost impossible - stress. Thought moderns scientists still make special research and debate on the issue if stress can create difficulties with conception, for thousands of women this became a fact.
Currently it is considered that thought infertility is very stressful, stress alone can’t influence on conception. Maybe this is right, but stress together with its consequences can do this for sure. For example, when a person is stressed, this pushes us towards overeating, smoking, drinking too much alcohol, or doing something not good and healthy for conceiving children. All these factors, especially taken together do not help your fertility. Time you spend in the crowded office also is not helpful. A woman may come home absolutely exhausted without any sexual interest.
Another research proved that if we consider a serious stress, it may lead to short-term infertility, but it was also proved that infertility caused by extreme stress can’t last for a long time, i.e. during 2-3 menstrual cycles, fertility will renew automatically and fully.
One of the factors against fertility caused by stress is insomnia. The permanent lack of time to sleep has serious impact on your health. It is important to sleep well; otherwise, the fertility is affected. If you are going to get pregnant, exclude night-shift work from your life, because such behavior may lead to miscarriage in early months of pregnancy.
Poor health caused by constant stress affects menstrual cycles as well. If your hormonal function makes your menstruations irregular, this may lead to problems with conception as well.
The advise is simple – while you are trying to get pregnant, just forget about all your troubles, think only about pleasant things, do what you like to, eat enough, but not too much, exercise, but not too much (chose walks on the fresh air), do not watch news on TV in order to avoid news-induces stress, sleep not less than 8 hours a day, stop smoking, do not take alcohol. And getting pregnant will be much easier.
The bottom-line is that you need to have healthier lifestyle and try to reduce stress, or better exclude constant stress from your life; at least for the period you are going to become pregnant.
