Trying to become pregnant? Could it be your Asthma? A new clinical observation study published in the European Respiratory Journal adds to more information that identifies a link between fertility in women and asthma. During fertility treatment in this observational study, women with asthma required almost double the average time to get pregnant than with non-asthmatic women. Not only that but, asthmatic women had fewer successful conceptions than those without asthma again by nearly double. The trend was seen more so in women as their age was older.
