Black Cohosh

This antispasmodic is a very popular herb for the treatment of fertility issues. It not just relieves cramping and mood swings but also treats other menopausal symptoms such as vaginal dryness. This herb should be taken during the first half of your menstrual cycle i.e. from menstruation to the time you start ovulating. This herb works like estrogen to balance hormonal levels. Alongside, it stimulates the ovary into releasing the egg.

Dong Quai

This herb is famous as a female hormone regulator. Dong quai works to increase the levels of progesterone in the body along with regulating the menstrual cycle. The herb is also known to solve high blood pressure, fatigue, and menstrual difficulties. It enhances the chances of conception by balancing the levels of estrogen in the body. The dosage depends from person to person. It is highly advisable that you check with your doctor before beginning to take this herb.

Vitex or Chasteberry

This herb is also referred to as the ‘female herb’. It is known to stimulate ovulation by enhancing the production of progesterone.

Evening Primrose Oil

This oil helps not just for fertility but also the brain. It consists of essential fatty acids. It works to increase the production of fertile cervical fluid. The production of this fluid facilitates the swimming of the sperm to reach the egg. It also helps in lowering cholesterol levels, and preventing menstrual cramps. This should not be taken after ovulation because it causes uterine contractions.

False Unicorn Root

This herb helps with female infertility and ovarian pain. It can treat hormone imbalances as well as menstrual abnormalities. This herb is also known to prevent miscarriages. This herb must also be taken during the time between menstruation and ovulation.

Red Raspberry Leaf

You can take this herb anytime during the menstrual cycle. This herb is very useful in strengthening the lining of the uterus and thus, it helps in lengthening the luteal phase. It is the ideal herb to take if you have the short luteal phase problem.

However, you should talk to your doctor about taking the herb during pregnancy. It is usually recommended during the third and last trimester because it strengthens or ‘tones’ the uterus. This is the answer to almost all fertility problems. The fact that it is high in calcium helps it maintain hormonal balance in the body.

Red Clover

This herb contains high amounts of magnesium, calcium, and vitamins, which are useful for the uterus. It also has high amounts of protein, which serves the entire body. Red clover also works to balance hormone levels while aiding blood detoxification, and relaxation of the nervous system.

These herbs are available in various forms such as tinctures, capsules, and tablets. Just because these herbs boost fertility in women, you shouldn’t consume all of them. You should find out which ones will benefit you the most. It is ideal to talk to your healthcare specialist so that you are absolutely sure.

Also, keep in mind that you shouldn’t take herbs as well as prescription medicines together. They may react and have bitter effects on the body.
