Our expert says:
Stress is a very subjective diagnosis and I would certainly not subscribe directly to the cause and effect relationship between stress and infertility in all instances. I would advise a very careful and detailed gynaecological evaluation as well as a sperm analysis to rule out more likely causes of fertility problems. If stress was a major player then in some ways ovulation would be affected and this should be diagnosed fairly readily. Should this be the only problem then perhaps a careful look at stress management should be valuable, in my option this is more likely to be the exception than the rule.
