There’s no doubt about it — infertility is stressful. From the way you feel about yourself to your relationship with your partner, infertility can deeply affect your emotional and mental health.
Though your situation can seem overwhelming at times, there are things you can do to both manage your stress levels and increase your chances of getting pregnant.
Maintain a healthy diet and weight.
Maintaining a healthy diet and weight can help you with both managing your stress levels and getting pregnant. Throughout the day, make sure that you're consuming plenty of fruits, vegetables, protein, and water.
Not only can regular exercise help you maintain a healthy weight, but it can also help relieve stress and depression.
Maintain a regular sleep schedule.
Lack of sleep is closely correlated to feelings of stress and depression. While many people understand that poor sleep can affect their day-to-day life, few realize that it also has an impact on fertility. To break the cycle, get in the habit of going to bed and waking up at roughly the same time each day, even on weekends.
Take some of the focus off conceiving.
It's easy to let the idea of getting pregnant consume your life. However, even though it might be something that is very important to you, it's necessary to focus on other things, like spending time with family and friends, and enjoying your favorite hobbies.
Reach out to a specialist.
If after one year of trying to get pregnant you still aren't able to conceive, consider reaching out to a specialist to learn about options that might help you. The younger you are when you seek help, the higher your chances are of getting pregnant are.
Learn about infertility options.
If you’re unable to get pregnant, you still have options for parenthood. Don't give up; instead, look into the various options that are available for couples suffering from infertility. Even though you might feel alone, you and your partner are not the only ones who are dealing with infertility issues.
