womansleepingWe all know sleep affects our bodies in multiple ways; from our memory, to our skin, even affecting our weight. But can sleep play a role in the outcome of in vitro fertilization?

Well a team of Korean researchers set to find out. They surveyed the sleep habits of 656 women who were about to undergo IVF. What researchers found was that women who had 7-8 hours of sleep per night were 25% more likely to become pregnant than those who slept 9 plus hours.

While it’s easy to find the correlation in this study, it’s not so easy to pinpoint exactly why sleep affects fertility. Further studies will need to be done in order to form a more solid conclusion.

The good news is that research in the “boost your fertility” field is quickly growing! So we encourage you to stay tuned to keep updated on the latest fertility studies.
