People across the globe are facing challenges of hectic lifestyles and try to find a balance between work and their personal space. The stress resulting from this may be a lot more damaging than what people think.

Fertility is a major concern for many couples and a new research suggests that juggling work and family life may be making things worse. The findings suggest that work-life stress can reduce a woman’s chances of getting pregnant by 25 per cent.

 

The study recommended counselling women trying to have a baby about importance of a work-life balance. This research shows the role mental health can play in preconception guidance and care.

Previous research has suggested that women suffer from work-related stress more than men. Women with hectic jobs are at risk as they are also in denial about stress in their life.
