    Stress and Your Ability to Conceive

    There may not be definitive studies that show a connection between stress and infertility, but WebMD guest expert Hyacinth Nicole Browne, MD, believes there's a link. She points out that women who are trying in vitro fertilization often have less success when they are under stress.

    If you're trying to have a baby, don't let stress be a factor, suggests Browne. Try exercise, yoga, reading, or a relaxing new hobby. Trying to conceive can take a toll on your nerves. It might help to ease the stress in your life.
