Conceiving a child can become a stressful time for couples, especially if they have been trying for some time. Manage your stress levels during this time as stress has been found to affect hormone levels, which can make it harder to conceive a child. Try to aleviate your worry and take the time to enjoy activities with your partner to reduce the stress levels. If you have been trying to conceive a child for a year with no success, consult a fertility specialist for an evaluation. Here are some activities you can do to help manage your stress levels.
Go out and have a night that reminds you of why you fell in love with your partner. Enjoy a dinner and a movie or go to a museum, something to get your mind off things for a while. This will give you the chance to just enjoy each other’s presence and reassure your appreciation for each other.
Yoga is a great way to relax and have time for yourself. Partake in meditation and relaxing breathing exercises and go through the movements to lower your stress levels. Yoga has the added benefits of improving your mental and physical states and increases blood flow throughout the body and reproductive organs, which could aid in conception.
Sometimes you just need a weekend to get away from all your worries. You do not even need to travel far; a “staycation” at a local resort or hotel may be just what you need. Enjoy a relaxing day at the spa and relax while you get pampered.
Just talking to your partner about the feelings and stresses you may be having can help alleviate some of the worries. You have to know that you are not in this alone and have someone there for you.
If you continue to experience difficulty conceiving, consult a fertility specialist to review your options. Contact The Fertility Clinic of Las Vegas to book an appointment for a consultation or to attend a patient education seminar.
