Trying for a baby is supposed to be an exhilarating time for many couples, but that excitement can quickly turn to anguish when it seems like an impossible feat. Between 10-15 percent of couples deal with infertility, and the emotional toll it takes can be exacerbated by not knowing what’s affecting your ability to conceive.
The sooner you discover what’s hindering your chances of conceiving, the better your odds are of getting answers and achieving a successful pregnancy. So if you’re worried that you or your partner may have fertility issues, the best thing to do is see a fertility specialist to help avoid stress and frustration.

While planning a pregnancy can be an excitingly blissful time, it can also be extremely stressful when it's not happening as quickly as you'd hoped. But agonizing over not getting pregnant can be the exact thing that's keeping you from conceiving.
A recent study conducted by the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center followed over 500 women during a 12-month period and found that women with high levels of stress during preconception were less likely to conceive than their less stressed counterparts. This research found that 29 percent of the participants who measured with high stress levels (found in their saliva) were less likely to conceive month-to-month and twice as likely to be considered "infertile."
"It's a known fact that cortisol, a stress hormone, has a great impact on a woman's fertility," says women's health expert Dr. Nancy Simpkins. The stress that couples, and women in particular, experience while trying to get pregnant can have a snowball effect on the body, which makes stress management a top priority.
