NIH study indicates stress may delay women getting pregnant – 4
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. Recent study results suggest that women trying to conceive should find ways to reduce stress.
Louis: It’s important for couples to relax in a way that they think works best for them.
Narrator: Dr. Germaine Louis is with the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.
Louis: Well I think stress is a very personal state. And I think how people relax is also a very personal state. What may be a form of relaxation for someone such as jogging may not be as relaxing for someone else.
Narrator: Study findings support the widespread belief that stress may reduce a woman's chance of becoming pregnant. Learn more at www.nichd.nih.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
