Stress affects fertilityResearchers from University of California, Berkeley claim to have found a missing piece of puzzle about how stress causes sexual dysfunction.

The study showed that stress delivers a double whammy on
reproductive system and fertility.

It is already known that stress boosts levels of
stress hormones - glucocorticoids such as cortisol - that inhibit the body''s main sex hormone, gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH), and subsequently suppresses sperm count, ovulation and sexual activity.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
