Herbs for Fertility
Answered by: Susan Eagles
Question from: Regina
Posted on: March 30, 2004

My husband and I have been trying for 4 years to conceive. My husband and myself are 29 years old. We have both been to doctors and I have taken fertility drugs, which was unsuccessful. The doctors don’t see any problems with me are my husband. We are active and eat healthy. Are there any herbs that I can take to help fertility?

There are many factors that may be involved with infertility. A full assessment by a qualified natural practitioner, such as a medical herbalist or a naturopath, is necessary to determine the herbs that will promote fertility in your individual case.

You will find some information on infertility on our website at www.richters.com. Choose Q&A from the main menu, and enter "fertility" for the search. I recommend reading the following books: Amanda McQuade Crawford’s “Herbal Remedies for Women” (Prima Publishing) and "Healthy Parents, Better Babies" A Couples Guide to Natural Preconception Health Care by Francesca Naish and Janette Roberts (publisher The Crossing Press, California). The information described in Naish and Roberts’ book is used in natural fertility clinics, whose statistics for successful pregnancies with healthy babies is much higher than in clinics using fertility drugs.
