Why do they say you must relax to fall preggies?
Funny question... why do they say you must just relax, and then you'll fall pregnant? Surely the sperm swim the same regardless?
You know, I really do try and relax about the whole baby making thing, but I have to take Clomid to ovulate, so there's never a month that I can just not take any fertility drugs and forget about the whole thing. We might take a break from the process next cycle, but there's NO chance of us falling pregnant if I don't release eggs!
Any thoughts?

Stress probably intereferes with ovualtion,hence the recommendation to relax. If you are taking Clomid, this effect will not be there.
