Reuters (6/28, Norton) reports that according to a study published online Jun3 13 in the journal Fertility and Sterility, women who undergo unsuccessful attempts to have a baby through in vitro fertilization (IVF) may be at increased risk for depression or a clinical anxiety disorder in the months immediately following the failed procedure. A second study also appearing online June 13 in the same journal found that women who were anxious and depressed while trying to conceive through natural methods appeared to have about the same chances of becoming pregnant naturally as their less stressed and depressed peers.
