Experts say fertility clinics should offer yoga to boost couples’ chances of having a baby.
Anxiety is known to be a major factor in infertility – a problem made many times worse by the stress of going through treatment.
One in three women going through fertility treatment suffer from severe anxiety and depression, according to researchers. Doctors found a way to combat that by doing 45 minutes of yoga a week.
Infertile women who undertook a class for just six weeks reduced their anxiety levels by 20 percent. Anxiety interferes with the way women’s reproductive systems work. Stress hormones can stop ovulation.
