Unlikely: The amount of hormones produced by your ovaries are fairly tightly controlled by a thermostat in your brain called the hpa-axis (hypothalamus, pituitary) which help the ovaries know when enough is enough. If you're having difficulty with emotional stress and sex-deprivation then it may be worthwhile to look towards exercise and sleep, sometimes counseling.

A 40-year-old member asked:

Is it normal to have spotting after sex if I am pregnant?

Dr. Ruth Crystal

Yes: Any new bleeding in pregnancy should be reported to your doctor/cnm. The cervix is very friable (bleeds easily) in pregnancy. Because of this, many women experience spotting after intercourse. I would not qualify this as normal, but it is very common and most times not worrisome.

Ovulation difficulty: This condition is becks a woman doesn't predictably ovulate. So getting pregnant may be more difficult. Sometimes fertility drugs are needed to resolve this problem during pregnancy some of these women are more likely to get gestational diabetes. All of this can be managed by good care before conception and during the pregnancy. Weight loss, good nutrition, and exercise can help too.
