Not-to-Stress is Critical Factor for Your Fertility
A recent study conducted at University of California, San Diego disclosed a link between the stress level of fertility patients and their chances of success. The study observed the stress level of 151 women while being treated for fertility with either IVF or GIFT.
According to the study, published in Fertility & Sterility, women who had more worries about the treatments and financial burden produced 20% less eggs for egg retrieval and had 19% less eggs successfully fertilized compared to women who weren’t stressed as much.
“This is why we encourage patients to take advantage of stress-reducing complimentary therapies”, says Dr. Kettel. As a full-service fertility center, SDFC makes other resources available to help the patients lower stress levels. Those resources include local fertility acupuncturists, chiropractors, massage and yoga therapists and more.
