Research proves- Stress can delay pregnancy and double the risk of infertility
Stress can create many problems in life. Unconsciously we all are trapped by the vivacious circle of stress but according to a recent study stress can even work against human natural cycle. As per a new report presented in journal Human Reproduction reveals that stress can create difficulties in getting pregnant and can also almost double the chances of infertility.
The researchers observed 501 American ladies within the ages from 18 to 40 years who are healthy and can easily bear babies. They were tracked for a year or until they get pregnant and then Saliva samples were studied. This exercise helped them to check their stress levels and chances of pregnancy problems.
The lead researcher, Courtney Denning-Johnson Lynch, director of reproductive epidemiology at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, explains, “This is now the second study in which we have demonstrated that women with high levels of the stress biomarker salivary alpha-amylase have a lower probability of becoming pregnant, compared to women with low levels of this biomarker.”
