Stress, Cortisol and Infertility

I've proven to myself time and time again that there is a definite connection between our minds and our bodies. Leading a stressful lifestyle increases stress hormones which can ultimately affect ovulation.

 I worked in a high stress "corporate pressure cooker" job for 19 years.  I tried to get pregnant while I was still working and, needless to say, I was unsuccessful.  It wasn't until I quit my job and let my own natural rhythms take over my life that I succeeded.

"Emory's Sarah L. Berga said that her work was the first to show that reducing stress through psychological intervention could restore ovulation in women whose ovarian function had previously been impaired. "Contrary to what had previously been believed, we found that multiple small stressors that seemingly would have minimal impact on reproductive competence can play a major role in causing anovulation [ovulation failure]. Up till now it was thought that failure to ovulate was usually caused by the energy deficits induced by excessive exercise and/or under-nutrition, but we asked why women undertake such behaviors. Often dieting and exercise are a way of coping with psychosocial stress, and our previous work had shown that such stress is often increased in women who do not ovulate," explained Berga.

Berga and her team set out to study the causes of functional hypothalamic amenorrhea (FHA) in women of normal weight who had not had a menstrual period for more than six months. FHA is caused by a prolonged reduction in gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), which signals the release into the bloodstream of hormones that simulate ovulation. Analysis of the cerebrospinal fluid in women with FHA, as opposed to women who were ovulating normally, showed increased levels of cortisol, a hormone related to stress."
