Study: Stress Makes Conception More Difficult
Study: Stress Makes Conception More Difficult

The more stress women are under while trying to conceive a child, the harder it is to get pregnant. Ohio State University researchers found women with high levels of alpha-amylase–a biomarker of stress in saliva–are 29 percent less likely to get pregnant each month, and are more than twice as likely to meet the clinical definition of infertility. The research team tracked 501 U.S. women ages 18 to 40, who were free from known fertility problems and had just started trying to conceive, for 12 months or until they became pregnant.
