FSH, estrogen & progesterone (the 3 common hormones that lead to infertility when left imbalanced – check our past 3 posts for more on this) are all strongly impacted by stress

So a woman who is experiencing high levels of stress may not get an ACCURATE reading on her fertility situation based on these hormone levels

You may consider stress to be the outcome of what is going on in your immediate environment, such as:

your job, paying bills, upkeep with the house, getting the gym, arguments with your spouse

But you probably overlook the underlying issues that are, what I consider, the SILENT stressors, such as:

perfectionism, people pleasing, never feeling good enough, past abortions or miscarriages, fear of failure, fear of loss, narcissitic / alcoholic parent, feeling victimized

These deep-seated issues often rear their heads during times of fertility challenges – whether you are conscious of them or not

We’ve all heard the cliche: “the issues are in your tissues,” meaning that our bodies are a REFLECTION of our emotions

So if a woman finds herself brimming with fear, anxiety & overwhelm after months of trying to conceive naturally without success

PLUS she’s dealing with the normal stress load of a modern woman, than it’s NO WONDER she’s getting the “your eggs are too old” diagnosis

Stress directly decreases blood flow to the uterus, decreases follicle production & quality, lowers estrogen, weakens the adrenal glands leading to low progesterone & interferes with the pituitary’s production of FSH

Notice a common theme? Stress directly disrupts the hormones of fertility

“Harder, better, faster, stronger” is the type of mindset that will limit your ability to both conceive naturally AND succeed with fertility treatments

IF YOU HAVE BEEN TTC FOR 6 MONTHS TO A YEAR & thinking of getting hormones tested soon, do this FIRST to decrease stress, connect to your fertile body & to ensure an ACCURATE depiction of your fertility hormones:

1. Lower feelings of stress /anxiety / overwhelm by incorporating journaling, meditation & hypnotherapy to help process those limiting subconscious beliefs

2. Seek out an acupuncturist who can also prescribe herbs to ensure your reproductive system is energetically balanced

3. Utilize mind body techniques like yoga, meditation & visualization to harmonize your mind with your body
