Infertility is one of the foremost topics of discussion when it comes to women’s health and well being. There are several underlying causes and factors that contribute to infertility.
These are just a few. Women can manifest a whole spectrum of symptoms or just one or two from the list.
Stress can increase what is known as reactive oxidative species (ROS) in the body. This can accumulate in the area where your eggs are produced and either reduce the egg quality or halt egg production. ROS also disrupt hormone function and their impact on egg production. Therefore during each menstrual cycle of a stressed woman, there is a chance that she is not producing any healthy eggs.
Women have been experiencing stress for many centuries and are still able to conceive, so stress on its own is just one of the factors that are responsible for changes in one’s ability to conceive. Working on all the factors that contribute to your stress and unhealthy lifestyle is one of the first ways to approach tackling issues relating to your fertility.
