With it taking, on average, 12-18 months for a couple to conceive and with approximately 1 in 6 of these couples experiencing fertility problems, trying to have a baby, for many, can be a very difficult and stressful time.
There are a number of factors, both male and female, that can affect fertility. Stress has been shown to have a major impact to the balance of hormones in the body of both men and women. Hormonal imbalance has been shown to adversely affect fertility.
