Not predictable: The AM serum cortisol is not extremely helpful without symptoms. Having said that, stress has a negative impact on successful conception and healthy pregnancy.

Unknown.: I doubt this is an issue but for general health you should probably seek medical endocrine consult for an acth stimulation test to see if your system can respond to stress. I don't really think that this would have a negative impact on fertility unless it's proven to be a consistent finding and severe deficiency. Even then i wonder about the significance. Best of luck
