Although a lot has been quoted and stated about mental health and its role in Infertility issues amongst couples around, the fact still says that Psychological stress doesn’t result in Infertility. Still a number of medical studies in the same regard state that mental health plays a negative role in the overall pregnancy chances for a particular person. It doesn’t matter if you are going through physical or mental stress, it can’t be considered as “Useful” for the fertility period by any means.
Quite interestingly, it’s not the stress which causes Infertility, but the Infertility issues which often bring stress to a person’s life and even as per a recent study on the same context, infertility in both men and women has found to be leading to stress, anxiety and depression within the process.
Factors which can help in improving mental health:

2. Taking Care of Yourself

Meditation always comes as the most supportive act when it comes to tackling the depression and stress factor in the process. Moreover, meditating early in the morning not only freshens up your mood but rejuvenates you for the rest of the day by boosting up your senses.
Exercising not only gives you a better physique, but also a healthy mind alongside. Moreover, it’s not necessary that you must be looking forward to doing heavyweight training in order to achieve the same, but a light exercising schedule can also help in a big manner.
