At any given time in the UK, some 200,000 women have been trying for a baby for 6 months or more. About 1 in 4 women TTC will fall into the category of unexplained infertility.
Infertility is, in this case, a misnomer as, after 3 years of trying 93% of women achieve a natural pregnancy. (70% after 3 months)
It is unexplained because a range of common issues can affect your chances of success and these could be different ones each cycle or a combination of several.
Apart from frustration, waiting and not knowing cause stress. When this is compounded by work, relationships or other stressors it can lead to underlying chronic stress without you realising it.
In chronic stress your body keeps producing cortisol, the main stress hormone. In women the overproduction can lead to delayed ovulation or no ovulation at all. More importantly, it impairs the preparation of the uterus for implantation of the egg. (also a major issue in IVF success rates)
In men stress affects sperm quality. YTE is a dietary supplement that breaks the vicious cycle of chronic stress. It may help you to prevent potential issues due to stress.
