Can stress cause female infertility?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 05/30/2017

Yes. As a matter of fact, in todays modern, fast-paced society, it is a common cause leading to female and male infertility. In the case of women, the presence of a adrenalin can signal to the body that it is not the right time for conception, thereby preventing pregnancy.

Adrenalin also causes the pituitary gland to produce prolactin. This can cause infertility by inhibiting the releasing of GnRH, a hormone responsible for the production of sex hormones, may suppress ovulation.
