Natural ways to boost fertility? I’ve had a miscarriage and an ectopic pregnancy in the year my husband and I have been trying for a baby. I’ve been checked out and no one can explain my issues or apparent infertility. I’m on prenatals, am not overweight, I exercise, and have cut down on caffeine etc. I am under a lot of stress.. But I have anxiety disorder so I’m never not going to be stressed out. Hah I had no issues getting pregnant in the past, as I fell pregnant while very young and on birth control. I’m 29 now. After the miscarriage and then the ectopic I’m losing hope.
Please get checked for MTHFR gene mutation
Thanks! I’ll look into this.
Good luck. I just know it’s tied to fertility and miscarriages. I have one copy and haven’t had any issues with fertility or keeping the baby. Sorry for your losses and what you’re going through
Yes this and blood clotting disorders
The list goes on and on.
Yes I was going to say MTHFR!
Anxiety can stem from gut health. If you have gut health issues then your insulin levels can be off causing hormone issues.
I'm a holistic healthcare practitioner. This is the root cause of a lot of women's infertility issues.
My hubby and I started trying 10 months ago. We got pregnant right away, but sadly had a miscarriage as well. Then it took us 6 months to get pregnant again. I realized I was trying too hard. Once I calmed down and stopped thinking about it 24/7 The next month we were pregnant. Going strong now at 10 weeks along. Sometimes it's our mind. Good luck, and don't stress.
I'm sorry but as someone that's dealt with infertility, "stop stressing and it will happen" is one of the most aggravating things to hear. Like it is our fault we can't get pregnant.
If you read that is exactly what happened to me so don't try to tell me stress can't effect it. Also, try some research it's a proven fact. Oh, and others on this thread have said the same thing, so clearly it's happened to others. I'm sorry you struggled with infertility, but don't take it out on me.
I’m just a stressed person. I’m never not going to be stressed. İt’s a well meaning statement to keep faith though.
It seems you edited to add to your post, or maybe some of it didn't show for me. I did not see any of the parts about stress. If you have an anxiety disorder, then yes, you won't be able to just not be stressed. Also, you can check for pcos. I don't know much about it, but heard it can be more difficult to conceive. Also my mom had trouble conceiving me and went to a specialist. They discovered she was too acidic and the sperm was dying before reaching the egg. Just a thought.
Tandra Lancaster thank you! I will talk to my doctor!
Connect with spirit
I guess I’m not sure what that means? I definitely pray about it often.
Took me a year to get pregnant I had a miscarriage then took exactly one more year to get pregnant. Had my son 13 months ago. Been trying for another ever since we could again. It will happen soon. Just keep trying don’t give up sometimes it takes time.
Stop drinking milk immediately. The hormones from the "nursing" cow prevent conception. And, take horsetail herb. Research horsetail and fertility.
I mean I apparently can get pregnant since I had a miscarriage and an ectopic. But it took 6 month to fall pregnant for the miscarriage and 10 more when I discovered the ectopic. My husband hasn’t been checked out yet.
Look into the mthfr thing for sure, related to that is a person with mthfr issue to not be able to properly use folic acid. Look for methylfolate so your body can use properly. I’ve also read about iodine being a huge factor for a lot of women. Hold on I have a link on that
Shannon Gill thank you!
Have you had him tested fertility issues?
He hasn’t been tested yet. That’s my next plan of action. I did fall pregnant twice - one miscarriage and one tubal/ectopic. So I know we potentially can get pregnant.
Our food, air, water, medicines and vaccines are all full of toxins. I would eliminate GMOs for sure as there are studies that point to infertility in animals who are fed GMO feed. I think the more you boost your immune system and strengthen your body through organic nutrition the more likely you are to boost your fertility. Just my two cents worth...
My husband and I were trying for over a year without success, we also tried Ivf, nothing.. At this point I stopped stressing about getting pregnant, started taking care of myself, exercise, fertility shakes, Acupunture and also used YS Royal Jelly/Honey Bee/Bee Pollen... We decided to try ivf again because I was told by doctors I was old and didn’t have many eggs left and couldn’t get pregnant on my own so while I was waiting for my period to arrive to start the meds, it didn’t come because i was pregnant... My first was born full term and a year later I was pregnant again without even trying.... Find an Acupunture who specializes in pregnancy and def try the Bee pollen jelly, it helps making more healthy eggs
May not be you If your husband drinks ... Ask him to stop for a solid 2 months folic acid and b complex
Vitamins for him
Both of you no alcohol or anything toxic in your body for 2 months
Thanks! I hardly drink so it shouldn’t be hard for me to forgo the one of two drinks per week I do have.
Look into vitex chasteberey. Not same during pregnancy but helps fertility
This book changed my life and three of my friends. We all got pregnant super fast!
I had several miscarriages related to my thyroid TSH levels, I wasn't producing enough to maintain a pregnancy.
You need to mediate, ride horses, or do yoga! You’ve got to get the anxiety under control
It’s as under control as it can be. I do everything I can. I have severe panic disorder. I take medication and try to actively exercise and relax. I’ve been hospitalized for it in the past. My attacks come out of nowhere. I’m probably the least anxious I’ve been in years. Although after the terrible scare with my ectopic pregnancy I’ve been more anxious again.
maca, progesterone, some kind of bad estrogen remover like DIM
My progesterone was actually good during my ectopic pregnancy. I had to get shots of methotrexate to deplete my folic avid levels to end the pregnancy in my Fallopian tube. This was in October. I’m now taking folic acid supplements .
High fat low carb
Really? I can try that! I definitely can not afford to lose any weight though.
Look up Bulletproff fertility
Stop drinking milk. The hormones of the cow who is "nursing" impact fertility and also horsetail! Look up horsetail!
I drink soy milk. But I definitely eat cheese etc.
Stop drinking Soy, its probably the worst thing ever
Soy is a fertility inhibitor. Just eat healthy - lots of vegetables little meat if you eat it. I would highly recommend reflexology once a week for 4 weeks and then twice a month. A good reflexology st will pick up any issues, know when you are ovulating etc. The quickest result I had was a client pregnant by her 3rd appt. Goodluck and try not to worry x
Yes, soy is a goitrogen and thus impairs thyroid function.
Thank you! I think my folic acid levels are okay. I take vitamins and prenatal supplements with folic acid.
https://www.target.com/p/rainbow-light-prenatal-daily-duo-multivitamin-dietary-supplement-tablets-and-softgels-60ct/-/A-50058877?sid=2471S Maybe something like this brand. I know folate is different from folic acid do some research, or maybe seek a naturopath to see other deficiencies that's causing miscarriages. Sending prayers
It should say low folate. When ingesting folate outs bodies turn it into folic acid. Anyone taking folic their bodies are missing s key step. Folic acid is synthetic and not good for anyone
Thank you Rebecca Keyes, I highly agree!
Shatavari (asparagus root) is good.
Does your prenatal have folic acid?
Needs to have folate.
Acupuncture, yoga and diet helped me after 5 yrs of trying
I listened to a video the other day by a Chiropractor, she spoke about womens hormones.... Wish i would have known this info 25+ years ago. I had two miscarriages myself....
Support your thyroid and hormones!
Acupuncture, chiropractor and clary calm from doterra. Also try to go gluten free as much as you can.
Take a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in water every day. This is a great fertility booster and will also help to ensure a healthy pregnancy and child. Also supplement with Lugol's iodine.
I'm so sorry you're going through this. We walked through years of infertility and I also had an ectopic pregnancy. I'd love to share some things with you in a message if you want to chat.
Have you been tested for the MTHFR genetic mutation?
iodine helps to balance progesterone and estrogen. But it needs time and enough iodine to work. My daughter in law had such severe endometrosis polycystic ovarian disease that the medical system had had her in menopause for over 3 years (she was 20 when I met her) plus over 20 surgeries as well. After taking high dosing iodine and using whole food co-factors (most recommend synthetic forms) all symptoms are gone and all medications / prescriptions are gone as well. She was told she had 5% chance to get pregnant and less chance of carrying the baby. She got pregnant & was so healthy was able to have the baby at home and is pregnant again. For anxiety try 12foru adrenal tincture & anxiety tincture sampler pack. All herbal based... Combinations of adaptogens work better than singles
No dairy. No soy. Both mimic or have an exponential amount of hormones.
Reiki can help in many ways, the most obvious being that it aids deep relaxation, as stress can be part of the problem. Reiki also helps to rebalance on a deeper level. Worth investigating and a lovely treatment for you both. Good luck!
Hello look up and research Maitake mushrooms. They are really good for women who have miscarried and have fertility issues.
