I am frequently asked if stress can lower the chance of pregnancy. The only thing we know for sure is that stress doesn’t help. Trying to introduce some form of relaxation, such as acupuncture, massage or yoga into your daily routine and cutting back on alcohol and caffeine are better choices than adopting unproven and restrictive dietary and lifestyle habits. Our bodies do best in a state of equilibrium. Keeping your daily routine and getting enough nutrition and rest can go a long way to help you achieve a pregnancy.
