Natural infertility treatments

Infertility is a disheartening problem. It is a couple’s dream to be able to raise children in their dream home and be a big, happy family. When certain factors prevent that from happening, both the man and the woman feel like it is their fault. Infertility is caused by many factors, including ovulatory failure, tubal damage, endometriosis, and for most people, the problem is unexplained. A large percentage of people are unable to have the problem diagnosed, still leaving them without pregnancy. This can bring a number of psychological problems for the couple, such as depression and feeling worthless, or not like a real woman or man because they have a problem that prevents them from being able to have kids. The truth is that many couples experience infertility problems, so no one is ever dealing with this alone. It is a fairly common problem, and there are many choices.

A healthy diet is critical to being able to produce children. Many foods and complications from eating unhealthy can cause infertility problems. There are even foods that can cause infertility. The right food can correct hormone imbalances that may affect fertility. The first step is to take care of your own bodies before you attempt to have children. A healthy body is important for a healthy pregnancy and reducing all risks of birth defects and birth problems. Being healthy can also provide an advantage for the baby developmentally and emotionally. You should eat a healthy, regular diet and avoid drugs, alcohol and anything in excess. This is also practice for avoiding bad substances during pregnancy to prevent birth defects. Pregnant women are advised to avoid mercury, caffeine, alcohol, smoking cigarettes, using drugs, and certain prescriptions. It is the thing for women trying to conceive, because these substances can alter fertility.

Supplements are another natural infertility treatment for both men and women. Certain vitamins and minerals can have a positive effect in improving the hormone balances that may cause infertility. It is advised to take folic acid supplements, which are helpful in producing your baby’s DNA and RNA codes and prevent birth defects. Giving B6 vitamins to women can improve fertility, and giving B12 vitamins to men can increase sperm counts. Also, zinc deficiencies can cause chromosome changes which can lead to miscarriage or infertility. Zinc also is included in the process of creating sperm. The head and tail of sperm includes zinc. Additionally, selenium is an antioxidant that is also useful in preventing infertility and miscarriage caused by chromosome breakage. It is also found in the blood of men with higher sperm count, so taking selenium supplements should aid in creating more sperm which enhances the chance of getting pregnant. Vitamins C and E improve sperm quality and mobility, making it easier to get pregnant. Herbal treatments are another popular way to natural infertility treatment. A herb called agnus castus helps restore hormonal imbalances and result in fertility.

In order to properly become pregnant, you need to begin monitoring your body. There is a period of four months that should be used to prepare the body by eating right, taking supplements, and avoiding anything that will be harmful for you and the baby. Using thermometers and tracking tools to measure the ovulation period will also help to get pregnant. When you are ovulating, your basal body temperature rises by one degree. This is taken in the morning right after waking. Usually the most fertile days are found by taking the average number of your cycle (24 to 30 days for most women) and subtracting 17 from that number. That is when your most fertile days start. Combine these tracking tools with proper health habits and you should be able to attempt to get pregnant again. If you sense something worse is wrong, check with your doctor.
