The Viscious Cycle of Stress and Infertility

A recent article in the Guardian discusses a 4 year study that links long-term stress to infertility.

The study, led by Dr. Courtney Lynch, followed 501 couples for up to 12 months as they tried to conceive. The women’s saliva was tested for measures of stress biomarkers, and results showed that higher levels of stress are associated with a longer time to pregnancy and an increased risk of infertility.

“It is true that stress can have an effect on fertility, most commonly with ovulatory dysfunction,” says Dr, Lawrence Werlin, Founder and Medical Director of Coastal Fertility Medical Center in Irvine, CA and, he adds, “There is no question that we live in a very stressful time. Whether financial, political, or personal, these stresses all take their toll. Add to this fertility issues, and stress levels are magnified one hundred fold.”

Also see below a recent testimonial I received from one of my clients:

“After two miscarriages I began seeing Cassie for homeopathic treatment. She was incredibly warm and caring, and I immediately began to feel more positive about my chances of a successful pregnancy. She took time to talk through my health history and to understand my anxieties to be able to offer the best care and advice possible. After only 2 appointments I became pregnant and our beautiful daughter was born on 15 March 2014. I am certain homeopathy helped and would absolutely recommend Cassie to anyone else in the same situation. I would also consider homeopathy for other aspects of my health and wellbeing; for me it was a very positive experience.”
