Acute stress triggers at various times in your life are inevitable such as moving house, bereavement, illness or a new job.
Your body has incredible ways to protect you when stress comes upon you and one of those ways is to stop you ovulating as it knows that it would not be a favourable time to start making a baby.
All the signs towards ovulation may be present but then it just doesn’t happen. Then when the stress eases your ovaries get the go ahead to ovulate.
This delay in ovulation can mean two separate build ups of mucus and often your whole cycle can be lengthened.
If you don’t realise you have been acutely stressed and not charting, the cycle being longer can give false hope of a possible pregnancy especially when your period isn’t arriving when you may expect it.
A stress impacted cycle isn’t a problem when charting using the Creighton Model System as I teach you how to preempt and manage this.
Of course finding ways to keep positive and calm when these stresses arise are so important to your fertility and I help you address this too.
