According to the National Sleep Foundation, the majority of Americans aren’t getting enough sleep.
A good night’s rest is of vital importance when it comes to your overall health and your fertility. The amount of sleep we get (or don’t get) can have a powerful influence on the body's hormones, which controls a woman's cycle and regulates ovulation. Those who are regularly not getting enough sleep have a significantly higher level of the stress hormones, cortisol and adrenocorticotropic, both of which can suppress a healthy fertility cycle.
So, when you’re taking into account a healthy diet, cutting out caffeine and getting your body into shape in order to conceive, it’s important that you remember that getting quality sleep at night is just as important!
