Pregnancy Rate

A number of medical studies suggest that a change in psychological well-being can lead to an increase in fertility success. By participating in programs that teach relaxation and cognitive restructuring, women experiencing depressive symptoms greatly improve their chances of conception . Severely depressed women who participated in a cognitive-behavior group program for 10 sessions that was designed to lower depression and anxiety experienced a 60% viable pregnancy rate within 6 months (Domar et al. Psychological Interventions and Pregnancy Rates Vol. 73, No. 4, April 2000).
