Trying to get pregnant? You have landed at the right place. Some recent studies have found that certain herbs can have a positive effect on fertility. Here is a list of five such herbs that can be helpful.
Asparagus is considered a female reproductive tonic and as the name implies, the tonic has the ability to increase fertility and vitality.
It’s rich in phytoestrogens, a group of naturally occurring compounds that has a similar chemical structure to oestrogen, which plays a major role in the reproductive cycle.
It also helps by reducing stress, which can cause fertility issues. It’s also used for menopausal symptoms and to increase lactation.
Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha)
Ashwagandha has been used traditionally to treat fertility issues in men. It is believed to improve semen quality, erection and sperm count.
It helps in improving male sexual health in disorders such as psychogenic impotence and unexplained infertility.
Agnus castus (chasteberry)
Some small studies have suggested that agnus castus balances reproductive hormones and helps regulate the menstrual cycle.
The irregular menstrual cycle also makes it difficult for many women to get pregnant.
The herb is said to improve female fertility. It’s believed to stimulate the ovaries and give ovulation a boost.
There is not much evidence, but Chinese herbs are said to improve fertility when taken along with other fertility drugs. However, the effect of Chinese herbs on fertility when taken alone has not been tested and proven yet.
