How does stress affect fertility ? 

Stress can lead to irregular periods that includes short periods cycle, or delayed periods cycle, or in some cases missing periods (2). Irregular period means a women will not be ovulating regularly. Ovulation is the process that happens once during menstrual cycle in which hormones change and release an egg. A women can only become pregnant if a sperm fertilises an egg, when an egg is failed to release as a result of irregular period due to stress, infertility is experienced. 

Why does stress cause fertility struggles?

  • Stress raises blood pressure: Which can cause poor circulation. When there is poor blood circulation in Ovaries and Uterus lining, it may not be able to create a thick enough endometrium each month. Studies have indicated that uterine lining failing to thicken could be due to decreased blood flow. This can contribute towards infertility. 


  • Stress can lead to accumulation of toxic cervical mucus in the fertility organs, this causes blockage and leads to inflammation in the pelvic area. The cervical mucus can slow down sperm’s swimming ability to reach eggs where it is fertilised also it makes also implantation in the uterus difficult. 


  • Stress also changes natural hormone system, such as level of estrogen, FSH and AMH levels along with changes in endocrine system.
