Does Stress have Impact on IVF Pregnancy?

August 5, 2009

People might think that the stress will influence the outcome of IVF treatment.

According to a 2005 Swedish study published in the Oxford Journal Human Reproduction, 166 women were monitored starting one month before their IVF cycles and the results showed no significant correlation between psychological stress and their IVF outcomes. The study concluded with the recommendation to clinics that it might be possible to reduce the stress experienced by IVF patients during the treatment procedure by informing them of those findings. While psychological stress experienced during a cycle might not influence an IVF outcome, it is possible that the experience of IVF can result in stress that leads to depression. The financial consequences alone of IVF can influence anxiety and become overwhelming.
