Stress and Infertility

"Women who are struggling to get pregnant could improve their chances of conceiving by having stress-reducing therapy sessions, scientists claimed yesterday. Researchers in the US found that rising levels of stress can lower a woman's fertility by disrupting her menstrual cycle, and in some cases prevent ovulation completely. But a pilot study of women who had not had a period for at least six months found that psychotherapy had a dramatic effect, lowering stress levels and restoring fertility in 80% of cases."
