Herbal Remedies For Fertility

Herbal remedies for fertility have been used for centuries with the purpose of stimulating ovulation, cleansing the uterus and balancing the female hormonal system.

If used wisely, herbal remedies for fertility can be very safe and effective. Herbal preparations are made using herb's roots, flowers, bark and fruits. Herbal therapies are available in tea, capsules, or tincture form making them popular for all types of individuals.

The best way to take herbal supplements is to prepare them yourself or to trust a good company that prepares the herbal remedies.

Remember, not all herbal remedies for fertility are made equal.

Herbal Formulas For Women

Herbal Tea: A Fertility Tonic

I like FertiliTea because its ingredients are safe if you are trying to conceive and can help increase your fertility in a very gentle and effective way. FertiliTea, Designed by Amos Grunebaum, MD, an internationally recognized fertility expert, supports the entire reproductive system and helps increase your chances of conceiving a healthy baby. All the ingredients are organic and wildcrafted, safe to take while trying to conceive.

The reason why I like this tea is because it's a loose-leaf tea that provides added nutritional support. You get important minerals and plant nutrients from the herbs in this tea as they transfer these nutrients into the water infusion when you prepare the tea.

Make sure to use filtered water and not tap water as this contains chlorine and heavy metals, which will reduce the uptake of these important nutrients.

Herbal Fertility Formula To Support The Menstrual Cycle

If you suffer from hormonal imbalance like high FSH and low progesterone, a fertility tincture like Fertile XX may be stronger in its action.

Fertile XX is an excellent fertility herbal remedy for women because it is very effective in stimulating and supporting ovulation and regulating the menstrual cycle.

How Are Herbal Remedies For Fertility Made?

Herbal tinctures are made by extracting the healing components of the herbs using a solution of alcohol and water.

Herbal teas are also called infusions or tisanes because the healing properties of the herbals components are extracting by boiling water.

Tinctures and herbal teas are both very effecting in supporting healing and normalizing the reproductive function. Herbal tinctures seem to be stronger, more therapeutic and you need to take less of it. Herbal teas are soothing and help maintain hydration within the body.

You can also make your own herbs for fertility bland. In this case, search for herbs that are grown organically and that have been subjected to strict quality control and manufacturing processes.

Herbal remedies made in certain countries may not be safe, so be aware of products made with the sole intent to profit by selling cheap and poor quality ingredients!

How To Make Fertility Herbal Remedies At Home

The following herbal remedies for fertility can be taken in a combination tincture or as an infusion tea. I like to purchase my herbs bulk and make my own infusions, if I have time.

Preparing my own herbal blends gives me a sense of power because I am taking care of myself. Also I know that the quality of the herbs is good and I always look for organically grown or wild crafted herbs.

Cleansing Herbs for Women

Pre-conception Cleansing Herbal Bland

This is my favoured pre-conception cleansing tea and contains very effective herbal remedies for fertility. This tea or infusion is useful if taken before you try to get pregnant. It is meant to gently cleanse your body by nourishing the reproductive system at the same time.

Here is the herbal formula:

4 parts Red Clover
3 parts Marigold flower
2 parts each of Dandelion leaf and root
2 parts Basil leaf
1 part Horsetail herb
2 parts Rose hips

1. To prepare your herbal bland put the herbs in an amber glass container (a plastic container will also work fine) and mix them up gently. Keep the container in cool, dry place away from sun light.

2. Steep about one ounce of the mixture in 2 litres of boiling water to fifteen minutes and then strain.

3. Drink up to four cups a day.

Liver Tonic Decoction

Here is a root tonic decoction that is a nice liver tonic. This herbal bland is meant to detoxify the liver and eliminate excess estrogen and stimulate liver functioning.

Before you can take herbal remedies for fertility, it is important to cleanse your liver from toxins in order to balance your hormones and increase your chances of conception.

Do not take this tea if you are trying to conceive. This is more of a preconception liver cleansing tea.

Here is the herbal formula:2 parts Dandelion root
2 parts Burdock root
1 part Sarsaparilla root


1. To make a decoction, bland the ingredients in an amber glass container (plastic containers are fine). To brew 1 litre of tea, combine 2 tablespoon of tea bland with 4 cups of filtered water (do not used tap water) in a covered pan.

2. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Let it rest for 5 minutes before straining.

3. Add honey, maple sugar or stevia to make it sweat and then drink 2 cups a day.

4. Keep the remaining bland in the fridge.

Milk Thistle Seed Extract

Milk thistle is an excellent liver tonic that may reverse toxic liver damage. This herb is present in many detoxification herbal compounds, but it can be taken in single tincture form to aid the liver while cleansing.

If your liver is sluggish and not in optimal health, any toxins that enter your body will not be processed correctly leading to a state of liver stagnation. Proper liver health is very important when it come to hormonal balance and fertility. Milk Thistle removes excess hormones from the blood and helps maintain normal sugar levels and digestive function.

Milk thistle is also present in many herbal remedies for fertility due to his gentle cleansing action. Learn more about this herbal remedy and fertility here.

This herbal composition also plays an important role in regulating the pituitary gland in FSH and LH production.

Stimulating Herbs For Women

Follicular Phase
 (from day 1 to day 14 or ovulation)

During this time, a mature follicle is developing in your ovary under the influence of the follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) secreted by the pituitary gland.

The ovarian follicle contains a mature egg, which is released during ovulation around day 14 of your cycle.

Herbal remedies for fertility are very important in regulating the luteal phase thus increasing your chances of getting pregnant and stay pregnant.

Here is the herbal formula:

3 parts Dong quai herb
1 part Panax ginger root
1 part Siberian ginseng root
2 parts Damiana herb
1 part 3 parts Rosemary herb
1 part Back cohosh root

1. Put the herbs in an amber glass container (a plastic container will also work fine) and mix them up gently. Keep the container in cool, dry place away from sun light.

2. Steep about one ounce of the mixture in 2 litres of boiling water to fifteen minutes and then strain.

3. Drink up to four cups a day.

4. Add honey to make it sweater.

5. Take these herbal remedies for fertility bland as soon as your menses are gone until day 14 of your cycle.

Luteal Phase
 (from day 14 or ovulation to day 28 or end of cycle)

This herbal formula stimulates the production of progesterone. During this phase the egg moves through the Fallopian tube, where it can be fertilized, to the uterus. If this phase is short, the fertilized egg does not have enough time to implant itself in the lining of the uterine cavity and it may end up in a miscarriage. This herbal formula can assist those who suffer from luteal phase defect.

Here is the herbal formula:4 parts Vitex agnus-castus
1 part Cramp bark
3 parts Skull herb
1 part Panax ginseng root
1 part Rosemary herb
1 part Sarsaparilla root


1. Put the herbs in an amber glass container (a plastic container will also work fine) and mix them up gently. Keep the container in cool, dry place away from sun light.

2. Steep about one ounce of the mixture in 2 litres of boiling water to fifteen minutes and then strain.

3. Drink up to four cups a day. Add honey to make it sweater. Take these herbal bland from day 15 until your period. Do not take any herbal bland while menstruating.

Herbal Remedies For Male Fertility

Male infertility can also be supported and enhance through the use of herbal remedies. Most men who have issues with fertility have poor sperm count, low motility and hormonal imbalances. Diet and life style changes are very important for men, especially when it comes to stop smoking and drinking alcohol.  

The following list identifies the main benefits of herbal remedies for fertility in men:

1. Support the functioning of male sexual organs

2. Increase sperm count and sperm motility

3. Maintain healthy testosterone levels

4. Support a healthy sex drive and strong, healthy erections

Most herbal formulas for male fertility like FertileXY contain herbs that support all aspects of male fertility, especially healthy seminal emissions, sperm health and testosterone production.

If you are TTC and have been diagnosed with hormonal imbalance, consider a natural approach, like using herbs to support your fertility naturally.

Fertility Blessings!
