The human body is both an extremely powerful machine, and one that is very sensitive to what happens to it. On the one hand, there are incredible processes within the human body that are designed to remove germs, heal injuries, and help you live longer. On the other hand, something as simple as anxiety or stress can wreak havoc on some parts of your body. Anxiety has been linked to infertility, and while anxiety can’t make someone permanently infertile, it appears that it can decrease the likelihood of pregnancy. So why does infertility occur and, perhaps more importantly, what can be done about it? At the heart of infertility is stress, and unfortunately, stress and anxiety are a normal part of daily life. There is a great deal of evidence that daily stress seems to drastically increase the chances of becoming infertile – at least temporarily. Make sure you take my anxiety test first, to get an idea of how severe your anxiety is and what you can do about it. Infertility is a complicated anxiety symptom, and what makes it more complicated is the fact that it can create more stress and anxiety. That stress may be work-related and relationship related, but in many cases, it’s related to the stress that men and women place on themselves to conceive, and the longer they try, the more that stress can increase, thereby increasing the likelihood of further infertility. So relieve the anxiety and be comfortable when waiting for the results.
