New study shows stress does not affect IVF treatments
A common question asked by patients undergoing infertility treatments such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) is about the impact of stress on the chances of pregnancy. Patients are frequently faced with stressors including busy work schedules, time away from work for treatments, and the stress of dealing with infertility. A recent study on the impact of stress and IVF outcomes shows women are just as likely to become pregnant when they face life's stressors as women that do not face similar stress.
