Infertility- Stress Could Be the Cause

Infertility- Stress Could Be the Cause

Have you been trying to have kids for a long time? Is inability and delay giving you sleepless nights?  It is important to know that Stress alone is a major factor for infertility.

Can Stress Have an Effect on Your Fertility?

If your mind and body is under stress your body is signaled to release a hormone - Adrenalin. This is a stress relieving hormone and gives your body the rush to face the stress. This hormone inhibits the utilization of the hormone Progesterone, which is essential for fertility. Also during stress Prolactin, another hormone, is relapsed which also interferes with infertility. Hence to conceive its essential that your anxiety levels are under control.

Chronic Stress also decreases libido:

Chronic stress may cause lack of libido as well as a decrease in general fertility. This has become such a common issue that they have created a name for it Stress Induced Reproductive Dysfunction. These facts are very important to consider if you have been trying to conceive with no results. It also shows that stress relief should be a part of every couple's conception plan even if they are going through IVF.

Ways to reduce stress & improve fertility:

If you are having difficulty to conceive, it's imperative that you get fertility tests done and also evaluate your life. Look out for the stress points that may be hindering a relationship. Remember defeating the stress may be the solution to your worries.

  • Reduce stress in your life: The issues in your life may be work or result related. You need to learn to balance your personal and professional life. The sooner you do it the better; after all you are preparing yourself to welcome a new born in your life.

  • Change your reactions: Get a hang of the situation and react accordingly. Over reaction to a situation can harm your body and mind. Stop bothering so much about the future.

  • Let few things be the way they are: Stop getting bothered about people. Remember by nature everything will fall in place. Let few things be the way they are.

  • Make it your habit to reduce stress: Call it an obsession or a practice, train your mind to choose options where there is less stress.

  • Sleep well: A good rest is essential for a healthy mind and body. Meditate, do yoga or seek counseling. Go for facials if it sooths you.

Please note that if your fertility reports are normal, then it's just a matter of time. Give you, your partner and your body time. There are certain medical complications or disorders that can also be responsible for infertility. Be calm and composed so that you are able to face the rough waters clearly with your partner.

Hi. You seem to be carrying the burden of the past for too long. Mistakes happen and its very human to make mistakes. The lessons learnt from mistakes is the only thing to be carried along, rest all has to be let gone. You may not have got an outlet to vent out and let go. To be living in the present, you need to let go of the past and begin living your life in the present, in the here and now. Make a priority list of all the important things relevant to you today and lay down a path to walk on towards your goal/s. In order to do this, you will first have to make peace with your past. You can consult a counsellor to help you. All the best.

Dear lybrate-user, the duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

I am sure you are one of many who has not combined medication with therapy. This will give you partial recovery. There are so many challenges that depressed people face and there are so many ways of dealing with it. Counseling from a professional will definitely help in discovering those techniques to learn to cope with these difficulties. You will definitely notice the difference and life will be a lot better for it.

In a psychologist's opinion, your current attitude is very much healthy. Among other who do not laugh easily you may be abnormal but the current attitude is the right one. Releiving your emotions will have positive effects on your whole endocrine system and laughing is an elixir. You can count on my words. Just be like now. Do not try to change. God bless you.

Depression can happen to anyone  and does happen to one in four of us over our lifetimes.  Different factors that make it more likely to happen include biological make up, upbringing, or reactions to life events. What keeps it going though is how we deal with those things. The way we think and what we do affects the way we feel. Thinking differently: * STOP take a pause, do relaxation breathing. And ask yourself. What I am racing to- is it fact or opinion? Or is it a negative thinking? * Do something different to divert mind from these thoughts * learn Mindfulness activity and breathing * Self hypnosis helps to reinforce positive thoughts and positive self image * Use positive self talk * Engage in a hobby. Most importantly even when one is depressed he is not always experiencing depression. No two moments are same. Look closely. Each moment is new. Focus and enhance happy peaceful moments. Mindfulness breathing helps to break the depressive cycle of thoughts by bringing our attention to current moment.

You sound like a depressed person from anger turned inwards. Your withdrawal from people is quite typical of a person who is depressed. Suicide is no solution and is a cowardly act. Like is very precious and must be looked after very well. You may be suffering from the rejection issue and sometimes, out of frustration, you will reject yourself in the form of suicide. When depressed suicide will look like an option but believe me it is not. You get only one chance in this life and you must make the most of it. If you think that you cannot do anything with the anger (which incidentally is not true, but you believe so), then you will tend to turn the anger inwards toward yourself and blame yourself, and start to beat yourself black and blue. Anger, being energy, and when turned around will stifle your natural energy to make you feel lethargic and listless. Can you identify with the anger? If so, express it to someone, preferably to a counselor. Once this anger comes out, it will seem like a heavy weight has been lifted off of your back and your mood will return to normal. Don’t submit to it. If you find the fight is too much, then go for counseling first and then for medication. The combination is ideal to combat this condition. This is the only condition were you are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too, if you are not already married. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Do not live with lies because you will feel guilty and the depression will continue to plague you. Face the truth, always.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not possible. Don't worry. Your brain cells are never destroyed throughout life. That means no data is lost. That also means forgetting do not happen unless in the case of injury. I suggest educational counselling online. Take care.

They are not just thoughts alone; there is a lot of unexpressed anger lurking within you that needs to desperately express itself. This anger is turned inwards and the result is this tendency to hurt yourself or terminate yourself. Whenever it seems that there is no specific reason, then it is bound to be something from early childhood that needs to be dealt with. Meet with a counselor and identify the feeling and thoroughly expend it out of your system. Your parents will know a lot of factors that may have contributed to this situation. Life is extremely precious and no one has a right to willfully end it unless there are very justifiable reasons. If you visit a geriatric ward in any hospital you will know the premium that is placed on survival, and how every possible way you can stretch life is attempted on frail and weak bodies that are in the twilight of their lives. You must also show that regard for your life, especially when you are that young and life is just beginning. You are obviously a bankrupt person spiritually: no spiritually sound person will contemplate suicide. Life is a gift of God and to be held in high esteem and preserved at all costs. You are probably depressed and when people are in that state, life looks miserable, hopeless, and futile. Depression can be resolved and if you have not used all the options to resolve depression, you would be inadvertently throwing away your precious life, never to get it back again. This life is an opportunity and since you have probably not utilized it well for various unfounded reasons please look at it with other people for other options and it will seem better. People who contemplate suicide are lonely people: just addressing that problem alone you will find good reasons to live. Failed or the threat of failed relationships are at the bottom of most suicides. A newer theory about suicide, devised by an American psychologist called Thomas Joiner, states that three main factors can cause someone to turn to suicide. They are: •A perception (usually mistaken) that they are alone and no one cares about them. •A feeling (again, usually mistaken) that they are a burden on others and that people would be better off if they were dead. •Fearlessness towards pain and death. Fearlessness poses the biggest risk that someone will commit a successful suicide attempt – they may fear the pain more than the fear of death. Go out there and conquer the world and don't ever let it get the better of you, ever.

Hi I am 22 years old and I feel very inactive. I cannot concentrate on my work. What could be remedy forthis.

M.Sc - Psychology
Psychologist, Chandigarh
Hi, feeling lethargic and inability to concentrate both point out to the possibility of high levels of non-managed stress. We sometimes get so accustomed to its presence that we don't actively work on reducing it. The first step for you is to look at your lifestyle - is it healthy? eat 4-5 portions of fresh fruits and vegetables and avoid packaged food. Try to sleep around the same time everyday and get 6-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Choose a physical activity that you enjoy and invest 30 minutes everyday in doing it. Engage in social conversations and do things that you enjoy. Also, focus on your thinking habits. Do you often catch yourself to be negative? what is your opinion of self and of others? often negative belief/thought system can lead to dissatisfaction and elevated stress levels. It will also reduce peace and harmony in your life. Practice meditation/yoga or any relaxation technique that you like. Consulting a psychologist will also help you in identifying and managing the causes of your stress. All the best!
