Going through infertility can be a very stressful journey, and stress in return plays a negative role with fertility. 

There are many fun ways to cope with stress and anxiety during this time whether it’s doing something as a couple, with your family and friends or with your close girlfriends.

Websites such a Groupon always have amazing deals to help you with these fun things to do. www.groupon.com
