Stress and male fertility.
Stress can inhibit male fertility in various ways, reducing sperm health and quality, and sperm problems are the main cause of male infertility.
Steroid hormones may be activated by stress resulting in lower levels of sperm production, and work stress is thought to cause lower levels of testosterone in the sperm which affects the sperm health.
Research has shown that two or more stressful life events in a year can result in a lower percentage of sperm movement (motility) and lower percentage of sperm of normal shape (morphology).
Stress may result from not conceiving, having fertility tests or fertility treatments, and stress can lead to behaviours such as smoking or drinking that are unhelpful for fertility.
Hypnotherapy can be effective for introducing positive behaviours, such as healthy eating and exercising regularly, to replace unhelpful and unwanted behaviours that may be affecting fertility.
Hypnotherapy can also help to achieve deep levels of relaxation, giving you the ability to manage stress and any triggering situations better, as it is not possible to be relaxed and anxious at the same time.
I'm available for hypnotherapy sessions at Muma Nurture on Thursdays, 2pm to 6pm.
