Why Stress and Trying to Conceive Don't Mix

Being a mother is a life changing experience. As a relatively newbie mom I will be forever grateful for being able to conceive and bear a child. My baby has been a constant source of happiness and joy to me and my family.

A woman's greatest blessing is to become a mother, however, not all are as lucky to easily conceive. I had a smooth conception and pregnancy with my first born and I'd say one factor that helped me was my management of stress.

Though there are alot of other factors that can affect conception, like age, physiological makeup, etc. I will emphasize more on stress and conception being a wrong formula.

Stress as we know isn't good for our body and should be avoided as much as you can. If you are trying to conceive, that's another way to avoid getting too stressed. According to, stress is one of the main causes of infertility. Stress can affect the hormones in your body that's responsible to stimulate your ovulation, which is why some stressed women notice that they are having irregular periods. If you and your partner are trying to conceive for quite a long time without success, try your best to avoid stress, it could just be the reason why you're having difficulty having pregnant. Women can also start tracking down their ovulation to make sure they do not miss that small window of opportunity in a woman's cycle to get pregnant.

Women can also try exercise that could help lessen stress like pilates or yoga. It helps calm the senses while working out the body. Workouts releases endorphins which gives a happy feel that can be used to manage stress.

In anything, trying to conceive a baby starts with readiness and the excitement of having a little mister or miss. This thrilling and new adventure should be celebrated and not stressed about. So for mom wannabe's or mom-to-be's, or already moms, enjoy the journey, it's a blessing.
