4 Herbs That May Increase Fertility

By Momatlast @momatlast

It's more common than ever for couples of all ages to experience difficulty conceiving. The addition of herbal treatments may help to balance your body and prepare it for pregnancy with fewer possible side effects than prescription drugs or other medical procedures to treat infertility. These four herbs have been shown to be effective in naturally enhancing fertility.

4 Herbs That May Increase Fertility

Stinging Nettle

Typically consumed as a tea, stinging nettle helps to prepare the body for pregnancy and sustains the embryo after conception by nourishing the uterus. It promotes strengthening of the kidneys and adrenal glands and has a high amount of chlorophyll, which acts as a detoxifier. It is also high in vitamin K, which is important for newborn health. For best results, it's recommended that you drink two to four cups of nettle tea a day for several months. Drinking nettle tea while breastfeeding will also promote lactation and help to ensure a sufficient milk supply.

Red Clover

Red clover is known to be one of the best herbs for increasing female fertility. Its alkalizing properties help to balance hormones, and it is high in both calcium and magnesium, which are believed to be important for conception. It can also help to repair scarred or damaged fallopian tubes, which can be a barrier to conception. Brewing red clover tea with mint can also be a sexual stimulant.

Red Raspberry

Red raspberry should be used while trying to conceive and then stopped once pregnancy occurs. The primary benefit is that it helps to tone and strengthen the uterus making it a stable environment for long-term pregnancy. It has been shown to be effective in treating recurrent miscarriages due to uterine weakness, poor egg quality due to nutritional deficiency, and uterine trauma. For best results, use red raspberry for at least three months prior to trying to conceive in order help the body heal and prepare for pregnancy.

Chaste Tea Berry (Vitix)

The chaste tea berry, also known as Vitix, helps to balance estrogen and progesterone and may help to prevent miscarriage. It can be taken through the end of the first trimester and then should be stopped, as it can cause milk to come in too early. It can be resumed after birth, preferably in the first ten days, to help rebalance hormones and increase lactation.

According to the American Pregnancy Association, clinical effects of taking herbal medicines are typically seen after 60-120 days of use. Herbs are generally safe, but some should not be taken while pregnant and others should not be mixed with each other or with other medicines. Always consult your physician before beginning any herbal treatment.
