Reduce your stress levels
Stress and depression
may hamper your fertility. Stress can affect the hypothalamus, which is a gland in the brain that controls the hormones required to release female eggs. If stress takes a toll on your body, then it could mean your ovulation will occur later than usual in your menstrual cycle, or not at all.

, yoga or support from a counsellor or a group, can get your hormones back on track.
