Supporting fertility naturally with supplements: what are your options?

Fertility is increasingly becoming a problem, for example, in America, 10% of women aged between 15 years and 44 years (over 6 million) struggle to get pregnant or to stay pregnant. There are many known causes.

However, in some cases there are no apparent reasons meaning that we still don’t know all the causes. Inability to get pregnant may take a huge emotional toll on the couple as their friends and family members enjoy having children.

Medical solutions are available but costly

Once it is determined that a couple struggles with infertility, medical solutions are available. This may include surgery for men and women, hormone therapy, medications for diseases and erectile problems and assisted conception.

For many couples that have been diagnosed with infertility, the cost of medical procedures that help them to get pregnant are too high and discouraging. Basic in vitro fertilization costs around US$12,000 excluding the cost of specialized tests, fertility drugs and hospital delivery. One American couple spent over US$63,000 for many in vitro fertilizations over many years.

There wasn’t much that they could do to reduce these costs and they were still unable to get pregnant. Eventually they opted for adoption.

Insurance may cover part of the cost of fertility treatments or may not cover it at all. Coverage depends on the insurance company, laws of the state, the couple’s ages, the reasons for infertility and the couple’s relationship status. This is why people are looking towards nature for help, especially in the early days of attempting to fall pregnant.

Natural Supplements

Diet and lifestyle changes, such as exercising more, sleeping sufficiently, smoking less and drinking less all help couples who are trying to conceive. Other women notice better and faster results when they take natural supplements and herbs. Below we discuss some of the natural supplements.

Fish oil

Fish oil contains omega-3 essential fatty acids which have helped many women to increase their fertility. They also help with the development of the fetus and the health of the pregnant mother.

Red raspberry leaf

Red raspberry leaf is known to improve the chances of falling pregnant and contains many nutrients that improve the health of the mother and the fetus during pregnancy.

Conceive Plus Products

Conceive Plus fertility support has two products, fertility support dietary supplement pills for men and women and a fertility lubricant that is protected by a U.S Patent and FDA cleared.

The fertility lubricant contains magnesium and calcium ions that naturally occur in semen and cervical fluids and support the viability of sperm, sperm motility and the fertilization process. The lubricant also corrects the vagina’s pH levels. By creating an ideal environment for fertilization, it improves the chances of conception.

The fertility lubricant is useful whether the couple are trying to conceive for the first time or have been trying for some time. It can be used each time the couple engages in sexual intercourse during the woman’s fertile days. Many women who used to struggle to get pregnant tried this fertility lubricant and they managed to conceive.

Conceive Plus Women’s Fertility Support and Men’s Fertility Support are the fertility support dietary supplement pills that improve health in men and women, preparing their bodies for conception. They contain vitamins A, C, E, a number of B vitamins, folate, calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium and other minerals.

Here are the benefits of these nutrients. Vitamin C is good for both male and female fertility. The B vitamins increase production of luteinizing hormone and follicle stimulating hormone which improve ovulation.

Vitamin E has been found to improve sperm motility in men who have poor sperm motility or low sperm count. Folate is beneficial when taken for many months before pregnancy since it enhances cell division and promotes ovulation.

Zinc helps with general cell division and helps with ovulation and sperm production. Selenium is antioxidant therefore it protects the sperm and eggs from free radicals. It also helps with cell division and may prevent miscarriage. The capsules are vegetarian and do not contain gluten, artificial flavors and preservatives.

The fertility support dietary supplement pills can be taken daily for several months while the couple uses the fertility lubricant during sex. Both fertility products have worked wonders for many couples as found in the reviews available on Amazon and fertility forums.

Nettle leaf

Nettle leaf is rich in chlorophyll, vitamin K and minerals which support adrenal health. It also reduces stress and it is a natural uterine tonic. It provides nutrients during pregnancy and the vitamin K prevents hemorrhage.

Red clover

Red clover contains high levels of vitamins and almost every trace mineral. It is known to balance hormones and restore fertility.

Maca

Maca balances the hormones and is well-known worldwide for powerfully promoting fertility and vitality. It can be taken by both men and women though women should only take it between their periods and ovulation. Once a woman is pregnant, she has to stop taking it.

Vitex/chaste tree berry

This herb nourishes the pituitary gland and lengthens the time between ovulation and the beginning of the period, giving a woman more chances of getting pregnant. It also raises progesterone levels and lowers prolactin. These effects increase a woman’s fertility.

Last word on natural supplements

There is hope for couples who are struggling to get pregnant. Indeed the cost of medical treatment is prohibitive. However during the early days, prior to being diagnosed with infertility, couples can choose to take specific herbs listed above as well as a range of products from Conceive Plus and other suppliers.
