New research suggests if you want to get pregnant, try to relax a little.

The study done at Oxford University in England involved 274 British women, 18 to 40-years-old.

Researchers used saliva samples to measure their stress levels. The scientists found that women with higher stress levels were 12 percent less likely to conceive than women who were more mellow.

On average, couples have a 30 percent chance of conceiving each cycle.
