Causes of Infertility and Herbal Fertility Supplements that Can Help
There are many things that can cause you to not be able to get pregnant. In this article, we’ll discuss some of the causes of female infertility. We will also go over some of the herbal fertility supplements that can help.
Have you ever noticed that everything sort of gets off balance when we’re stressed? Digestive problems, mood changes, and yes, even fertility problems occur when we fail to handle the stresses in our lives. Try yoga, meditation, or exercise.
First, Yoga centers the body and mind so that you are better able to solve problems and deal with your stress. You can find Yoga classes online. Most gyms have classes free to their members.
You can sign up for a class at your local Community College or Community Center. There are even phone apps that you can download to your smart phone to use at home or on the go!
Second, Meditation can help you focus and channel your energies better. There are several phone apps with guided meditation. You can even find one specifically focusing on fertility!
Furthermore, Exercise gives you a release of endorphins (the “feel good” hormones) that just make you feel better in general. Join a gym, or your local YMCA.
Community Centers often have exercise classes as well. You can also just go for a brisk walk or jog, ride a bike, or go for a hike.
All of these can help alleviate the stress in your life. For more tips, see our Stress blog here.
Equally, or even more so, at fault are hormones. The reproductive cycle is ALL about hormones. There is a very small fertile window in the cycle. If even one of the hormones gets off balance, it throws the whole process off. Check with your doctor to have your hormone levels tested.
If your hormones are off, there are replacements you can take to fix the problems.
Last but not least, the physical issues. Sometimes there are physical problems with the uterus that can only be discovered through a visit to your doctor. There are many possible problems, and your doctor will be able to guide you in the right direction regarding treatment or options.
Whatever the issue is, remember you’re not alone! 10% of women in the United states ages 15-44 have trouble getting pregnant.

Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine (TCM)
There are Chinese herbal fertility herbs can help regulate your system and get everything back on track.
To begin, Rehmennia helps balance hormones and regulate menstruation. It strengthens the uterine lining and circulates blood. Rehmannia nourishes “yin,” which balances out Asiatic Dogwood, which supports “yang.”
Next on our list is Chinese Peony. This herb nourishes the blood and supports the liver. It aids in flushing toxins from the liver to increase balance, supporting fertilization.
Third, Asiatic Dogwood. This stabilizes the kidneys and menstruation. It tonifies the liver, kidney and jing, which promotes strength and health, and reinforces the immune system. Asiatic Dogwood supports yang, being a counterpart with Rehmmania, and helps sustain the level of follicle stimulating hormones, encouraging health ovulation.
Not to mention Chinese Yam, sometimes referred to “fairy food,” This is a powerhouse of health. Strengthening the spleen and stomach in aiding digestion, it supports nutrient absorption, creating a stronger environment for conception. It regulates fluids and promotes longevity, as well.
