Apple Cider Vinegar For Fertility

by AMS
(Pittsburgh, PA)

I've recently read a lot of health benefits to taking apple cider vinegar daily. Is there any benefit to fertility?


It is true that apple cider vinegar has many benefits for many conditions, but it is not for everybody. It depends on your pH levels and constitution. Most people do respond well to apple sider vinegar in small amounts to help with pH balance.

Apple cider vinegar is made through the fermentation of fresh apple cider and it helps enhance health because it is a rich source of minerals, particularly potassium. It also contains vitamins, enzymes and amino acids. When taken internally diluted in water it has been used in holistic medicine to treat many conditions like gall stones, headaches, high blood pressure, bad cholesterol, infections, high blood sugar, vaginal yeast, UTI, prostate problems, digestive problems, weight gain, asthma, just to name a few.

In fertility is can be employed to treat candidadis that causes hostile cervical mucus. Candida is a systemic condition that affects the entire body and may cause infertility, blocked fallopian tubes, and worsens endometriosis, fibroids, polyps, and PMS symptoms because it changes the pH of the body.

Some practitioners recommend apple sider vinegar for infertility by taking 2 teaspoons of apple Sider Vinegar with water twice a day for a few months. You should be checking your saliva pH and
also your vaginal pH to make sure it stays alkaline. Even if vinegar is acidic it has an alkalinizing effect on the body.

If your saliva pH is acidic you are at risk of degenerative diseases. You want to maintain an alkaline pH in both your saliva and you vaginal environment to facilitate conception. Acidic cervical mucus is hostile to sperm.

Apple sider vinegar has to be raw, unfiltered and organic in order to be effective, do not take pasturized apple sider vinegar as it will have the opposite effect on your body. I am sure you can find the unpasturized kind at you local health food store. The key is dilute it and drink it with a straw to prevent affecting tooth enamel. Also, it should be taken on an empty stomach. Too much apple sider vinegar can cause upset stomach. In this case the dosage should be lowered or diluted in more water.

I would not recommend apple sider vinegar for long term use. It is best to take breaks in between cycles of a few months. In my personal opinion the dose should be adjust to each person’s need. The key is to use it just enough to maintain balance within the body’s pH.

Do not take apple sider vinegar if you are on prescription medication without talking to your doctor first.

Apple Cider Vinegar for Fertility
by: Anonymous

A friend of mine recommended Apple cider vinegar to me, am trusting God for a child, I have done 2 IVFs but still no child, how will ACV help me.


ACV has many benefits for health and it does not affect fertility per se, but helps the body become more alkaline (balances body pH) and produce digestive enzymes and absorb more nutrients the body needs to make healthy eggs.

If a woman is suffering from Candida, ACV can help a lot restore normal pH in the cervical mucus increasing conception.

ACV is known to contain vitamins like vitamin B and C and minerals like magnesium, potassium, copper. These nutrients are very important for the body normal functions, including reproduction and pregnancy

ACV is often recommended to help unblock the fallopian tubes, PCOS, balance the hormones and decrease fibroids. ACV cannot be considered a treatment option for these condition, but when the pH of the body is brought back into balance the body enters a state in which healing can take place.

Many Blessings!

Irregular Period: Lass Than 28 days
by: Anonymous

My partner and I have been trying to have a baby for almost a year now, but my period are less than 28. Sometimes 2 periods in 1 month, can you please help?


There are many reason why a woman may experience short cycles. Consider that anything between 21 to 35 days cycle is consider a regular cycle by fertility experts.

If you have noticed that your menstrual cycle has shorten recently, then this can be an indication of having low estrogen or low progesterone.

I would recommend talking to your doctor to evaluate your situation.

Hormonal imbalance is often the root cause of this and it can be treated with a natural approach like fertility vitamins, herbs, acupuncture, massage, etc... An important thing you can do is to chart your cycle.

Also, doing fertility detox is often a great way to prepare for pregnancy and help your body eliminate harmful toxins that may affect your hormonal balance.

All the best!

Can ACV help me
by: lee007

Hey me and my partner have been trying to conceive,but my periods irregular and my period are 10 days long and I've realize that there's a watery clear liquid coming out of my breast when I squeeze my nipple,can you please give me advise on what can be the problem and can you tell me if the ACV will help increase the estrogen and progesterone and or if the ACV will make a difference in my sitsuation if I start using it.

Thank you in advance


ACV can help in your overall level of health because it helps your body maintain a healthy pH level, but it does not specifically treat hormonal issues. ACV can be a great complementary supplement to use.

In order to balance your hormones it is important to talk to your doctor to see which are not balanced and find a treatment for that.

You can chose a natural approach with herbal remedies, acupuncture or homeopathy. Also, remember that your diet is very important.

Apple cider vinegar for absent periods
by: Anonymous

My friend has recommended me to use apple cider vinegar for my absent periods and ovarian cysts will it really help? Please halp me I m tired with this issue of absent menstruation and ovarian cysts.


Apple cider vinegar can help the body in so many ways and it can assist in fertility issues, but if hormonal issue are the underling problems it is best to talk to a naturopath or herbalist and get more specific advice for your specific case.

Oarian cyst can be treated naturally in most cases, especially if hormonal issues are the root cause. Most women with ovarian cyst present low progesterone and estrogen dominance. Make sure to talk to a health care practitioner for proper diagnosis of your case.

The OvarianWise Kit is can help support ovarian health and promote hormonal balance.

All The Best!
