Herbs possess incredible healing powers and have been used for centuries with great results to treat infertility. Most fertility herbs used to make fertility herbal remedies not only stimulate ovulation, promote healthy uterine lining, increase sperm count and libido. Herbs for fertility also replenish the body from important minerals and vitamins providing anti-oxidant compounds, called phytochemicals, which are present only in plants.
Popularity of Fertility Herbs
Did you know that for two-thirds of the world population, traditional medicine consists of using herbal medicine? In many countries, natural medicine is not an alternative, it is common healing practice based on the knowledge that has been accumulated over the centuries and passed on from generation to generation. Also, many medical doctors study natural healing either as part of their medical studies or during their medical specialization.
Regardless of where you live, you will find that there is a very strong tradition of using fertility herbs to enhance male and female reproductive wellness. In western society, this very valuable tradition was almost lost or forgotten to leave room for more advance technology of medical science such as IVF. Fortunately, there is a rediscovering of this ancient medicinal herbal knowledge that can now be applied to the benefit of anyone who is having difficulty getting pregnant. In fact, more and more women are resorting to herbal remedies for fertility in order to conceive naturally.
Fertility Herbs For Infertility Issues
Fertility Herbs help women conceive by:
1. Regulating the menstrual cycle
2. Supporting ovulation
3. Maintaining endometrial health
4. Prevent miscarriage
In men, fertility herbs improve sperm motility, count and morphology while supporting healthy levels of testosterone.
Fertility Herbs for Women
If you want to increase your fertility and regulate your menstrual cycle, a very good fertility herbal remedy that I do recommend is
Fertile XX for women. This excellent fertility herbal bland contains:
Chasteberry (Vitex agnus-castus) is the most famous of all fertility herbs because it stimulates proper balance and production of the hormone progesterone by stimulating the pituitary gland to secrete luteinizing hormone (LH) in the correct amounts. Vitex stimulates ovulation and regulates the length of the luteal phase (second half of the menstrual cycle from ovulation to the periods) addressing luteal phase defect (too short second phase may prevent embryo implantation). In western herbal medicine it has been used for centuries to treat sterility and recurrent miscarriages.
Vitex is also known to lower high follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) levels and high prolactin levels in women with polycystic ovaries and poor ovarian response.
Black Cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa) is a very popular female herb used by Native Americans to treat gynaecological disorders of the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. Cimicifuga helps to balance estrogen levels and reduces menstrual problems related to infertility. It also resolves estrogen related conditions like fibroids and endometriosis because it has anti-inflammatory properties. Cimicifuga also helps prevent DNA damage as it contains antioxidants. This herb is very useful in promoting reproductive health in women over 35 who are trying to conceive for the first time because it helps stimulate cleansing of the uterus before conception. This herb can also prevent miscarriages during the first trimester but can also cause uterine contractions. Once you conceive, stop taking this herb. Take under the supervision of a professional natural health practitioner if you are pregnant.
Siberian Ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosis) used in Chinese medicine to promote healthy blood flow to the reproductive organs and stimulate conception. This herb is a great adaptogen that helps your body deal with increased stress, exposure to radiation and drug side effects. Siberian Ginseng is part of a group of fertility herbs that boost both male and female fertility. Siberian Ginseng supports healthy uterine function and relieves menstrual disorder, while combating fatigue and restoring energy and vitality.
Irregular Periods and PMS
If you suffer from irregular periods and pre-menstrual syndrome, Femalite for PMS can help you find balance and harmony.
This remedy helps maintain a stable mood before and during your menstrual period, supports healthy fluid balance, soothes "cramps" commonly related to the premenstrual and menstrual period. These are the main herbs:
Sweet Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) is a great herbal remedy that regulates the menstrual cycle and reduces PMS by balancing fluid levels and by decreasing cravings. If you suffer from PMS, this herb will help relieve bloating, cramping and alleviate mood swings.
Pasque Flower (Pulsatilla vulgaris) is an excellent herb that helps maintain hormonal balance within the female reproductive system by regulating the menstrual cycle and aiding in difficult periods. This herb helps regulate PMS symptoms that include moodiness, crying and emotional upset. If you suffer from premenstrual headaches and nervous exhaustion, this herb can help your regain a positive balance fast.
Lemon Balm (Melissa officinale) is another great herb that promotes emotional balance and a calm state, averting premenstrual irritability. It also helps to prevent skin eruption due to premenstrual stress. If you suffer from amenorrhea (absent periods), Lemon balm will stimulate menstrual flow by regulating the menstrual cycle. Lemon Balm is also indicated in cases of chronic fatigue syndrome, premenstrual migraine headaches and irregular thyroid function.
Fibroids Treatment with Herbs
Herbs for fibroids can really help you if you have uterine fibroids and cannot conceive as a result. Fibroids grow in the uterus causing pain during menses, painful intercourse, and infertility. The larger the fibroid, the more difficult you will have while trying to conceive. Fibroids can also distort the size and location of the uterus and prevent conception. If you know you have fibroids, consider a natural approach before resorting to surgery.
Endometriosis Affecting Fertility
More and more women suffer from endometriosis affecting fertility as a result of hormonal imbalances, poor diet, low vitamin intake and susceptibility to environmental pollutants
If you have an existing condition like endometriosis that is affecting your chances of conceiving, herbal remedies can assist you resolve this issue.
Endo-Ex is specifically designed to promote women's healthy endometrium lining. Endo-Ex decreases inflammation in the uterus caused by pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), endometriosis, and infections. Endo-Ex is a compound remedy containing herbs that work well together to support your endometrium :
Chasteberry (Vitex agnus-castus) supports hormonal balance and helps avoid the side effects of estrogen dominance that cause endometriosis. This herb is used by herbal medicine practitioners as an excellent fertility tonic because balances estrogens and progesterone levels leading to a natural regular menstrual cycle.
Don Quai (Angelica senensis) is another wonderful herb that has a tonic action on the female reproductive system. This herb is used both in Western and Chinese Herbal Medicine to regulate the female menstrual cycle and to balance estrogen because it supports the liver in eliminating excess estrogen that stimulate endometrial implants to grow.
Don Quai is also used for its natural pain killer qualities to help ease painful menses cause by PID and endometriosis.
Milk Thistle (Silybum marianus) supports the liver whose job is to synthesize hormones. This herb is a mild liver cleanser that helps support regular cycles by helping eliminate excess estrogen from the body. It is important to take vitamin B6 while taking Milk Thistle to help metabolize extra estrogen. If you are like many women who do not tolerate Vitamin B6 well, you can take its activated form pyridoxal-5-phosphate (P5P) instead. This will decrease PMS and endometriosis symptoms.
Chinese Yam (Dioscorea villosa) is another wonderful herb that help get endometriosis under control by reducing the amount of estrogen in the body. It also has anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic (soothes menstrual cramps) qualities.
Viburnum opulus is often used in homeopathic medicine due to its affinity for the uterine lying and to treat menstrual problems, painful menses, uterine inflammation caused by endometriosis. This remedy has anti-inflammatory properties and it is also a muscle relaxant aiding in menstrual cramps.
Once you conceive, your should stop taking this remedy. There are some specific herbs for pregnancy to help you with your pregnancy symptoms.
Male Fertility and Healthy Sperm
For male fertility problems, the fertility herbs contained in Fertile XY are very effective in stimulating the production of healthy sperm and boost male libido.
Most of the time, it is the woman that seeks natural health solutions for fertility problems and decides to look into fertility herbs, but most often it is the male partner that can greatly benefit from this type of therapy because the health of the sperm makes a big difference when trying to increase the odds of conception.
Men, who produce lots of healthy sperm with high in sperm count, good motility and morphology, have greater odds of conceiving. Herbs for men contained in Fertile XY are:
Horny Goat weed (Epimedium grandiflorum) promotes healthy seminal emissions and increases sexual performance. It is usually incorporated in sexual tonics to promote sexual stamina and support testosterone levels that cause male sterility. If you suffer from low sperm production, this herbal remedy can help increase your sperm count.
Gotu kola (Centella Asiatica) increases longevity and promotes rejuvenation. This herb is used to increase male fertility because it strengthens the connective tissue of the walls of blood vessels of the seminiferous tubules where sperm cells are made.
Gokshura (Tribulus terristis) stimulates male virility and increases libido. Tribulus increases levels of a variety of hormones like DHEA and testosterone, supporting male sexual function.
Tribulus has a calming effect on the nervous system and encourages relaxation. Stress can interfere with male fertility and health sperm production.
How to Take Fertility Herbs
The healing powers of herbs come from their "active constituents" used to create a standardized herbal product in the form of an infusion, tincture or decoction.
Tincture should be taken diluted in water and can be taken one or two times a day when the action of the herbal remedy needs to be stronger on the body.
Fertility herbs in the form of herbal teas and decoctions are great when taken often during the day for a soothing and mild action.
Herbal teas, keep you well hydrated and nourished because many herbs are rich in minerals that are easily absorbed by the body.
Most herbal remedies come in tincture preparation and are more concentrated and more potent.
Take 20 drops diluted in 1/2 glass of water 3 times a day away from meals. Do not take fertility herbs if you are taking prescription medication or fertility drugs. To avoid drug herb integration talk to your doctor first.

Fertility Herbs and Safety
When choosing fertility herbs think about safety and effectiveness, not price! Not all herbs to increase fertility are made equal, even if they list the same ingredients. I recommend Native Remedies because of their unique approach to reproductive wellness by utilizing a dual modality formulation method where herbal remedies work in combination with homeopathic remedies, flower essences and tissue salts. Another important reason why I find these remedies excellent is because the manufacturing processes are absolutely safe.
Many companies manufacture herbal remedies using a process of extracting herbs that uses chemicals. This presents the risk of dangerous side effects especially if you are preparing for conception.
Fertility Native Remedies like FertileXX and FertileXY are manufactured using a unique approach called Full Spectrum Approach of extraction to ensure you get the quality, potency and protection you need. Learn more about these herbal remedies for fertility here.
