Get in the Mood: Fighting Fertility Stress
With a large number of couples postponing pregnancy to advance their education and careers and balance other life goals, the demand for fertility treatments and tools is exploding.

Unfortunately, the price tag of waiting is high.

You may also feel frustrated that conceiving isn't as easy as you thought.

The constant clutter of advice from family, friends, and coworkers, combined with the pressure of the clock ticking, is enough to pit you and your partner against each other, rather than being on the same conception page.

This can change your mood and even make you want to give up.

How can you de-stress while trying to conceive?

Chloe Carmichael, PhD, shares how you can still get in the mood even though you and your partner may be struggling with fertility.
