Getting pregnant can sometimes be challenging. If you are having a difficult time getting pregnant, then you may want to try some herbs that have been known to help increase fertility. Here is a list of four of them and the benefits that can be derived from taking them regularly.
Red Raspberry Leaf
Red raspberry leaf is full of calcium and can be powerful in fighting infertility because it helps to tone the muscles in the uterus. When the muscles in the uterus are toned it strengthens the lining of the uterus. This makes it more likely that a fertilized egg will be able to implant in the uterus. Drink at least two cups of red raspberry leaf tea daily when you are trying to conceive. Make the tea by adding a half a cup of red raspberry leaves to a cup of boiling water. Allow it to boil for fifteen minutes before adding sugar to the mixture.
Don Quai is another herb that effectively tones the uterus. It also helps to regulate your hormones, so if hormonal problems have been contributing to you having difficulty conceiving, then this herb will be helpful. You can purchase don quai capsules at your local herbal store.
Red clover is rich in calcium and magnesium which help to strengthen the lining of the uterus. Red clover also assists in the regulation of female hormones which helps to normalize irregular menstrual cycles and this increases your chances of conceiving. You can make red clover tea by placing a cup of the dried blossoms in two cups of water and boiling them on low heat for at least ten minutes. You can ten strain off the leaves and use honey or sugar to sweeten the tea to your taste. You should drink at least two cups of this tea per day.
Vaginal dryness can severely affect fertility because a dry vagina is hostile to sperm. Sperm need to swim to the egg in order to get to the vagina. The vagina is kept moist by cervical fluid and false unicorn helps to produce healthy cervical fluid. This means that when sperm get released into the vagina during intercourse they will have rich cervical fluid in which to swim in to get to the egg. This increases the chances of fertilization. You can make false unicorn tea by placing two teaspoonfuls of the false unicorn root into a cup of boiling water. Allow it to boil for fifteen minutes then sweeten to taste. Drink the tea at least three time per day.
Herbs are often effective in helping with conception and should be considered a viable option if you are having trouble conceiving. Always consult your OB-GYN when starting a new fertility regime. For more information about women's health, contact a company like the Women's Healthcare of Illinois.
