Medical fertility treatments carry a high rate of success, however, they are one of the most costly medical treatments. For every fertility treatment attempt that doesn’t succeed, patient costs rise. As a result, many people are turning to natural fertility treatments, which can improve the likelihood of successful fertility treatment. Patients undergoing regular medical fertility treatments can also turn to natural treatments in order to increase fertility. People needed help with fertility long before medical fertility treatments were in progress. Yet, the human race didn’t die out overnight due to underpopulation. This is because increasing fertility by way of natural treatments works.
If you would like to increase your fertility, there are many methods that people have been successfully putting to use for thousands of years. Below are some tips for taking a more natural approach to increase your fertility, or complement your current medical fertility treatment plan.
How Can I Increase My Fertility Naturally?
Change Your Diet
Changing your diet is one of the easiest ways to increase fertility in a natural way. If you follow a healthy and natural diet, your body is more likely to be in tune. In fact, there are certain food types that are known for improving fertility or libido.
A diet rich in fresh fruits (like figs) can promote the body’s natural hormones and give your body the natural fertility boost you are in need of. Cut out artificial ingredients, unhealthy oils, and preservatives. Not only can sugar have a negative impact on your overall health, but it can also lower fertility. Stay away from sugar!
The healthier your body is when you attempt to increase your fertility levels, the more likely the process will be a success. Before you begin with any type of fertility treatment, consider starting with a detox, or a return to more natural food types.
Detox doesn’t have to be complicated. Instead, a detox can simply mean that you cut out unhealthy ingredients for a while.
Multivitamins can improve your immune system, which also compliments fertility levels. Multivitamins can also increase the effectiveness of any other fertility treatments that you might already be following.
Choose a multivitamin that is the most comprehensive to add to your intake and the safest for your needs.
Exercise More Often
A lack of exercise doesn’t just impact how your body processes fat. Studies show that failure to exercise regularly also negatively affects how likely your body is to take to fertility treatment. If you are unable to maintain a healthy weight, take control and gain your body back before starting any additional fertility treatments. Controlled exercise can mean that your body responds better to treatment and can increase your chances of conceiving.
Work With Your Body
The best thing to do if you are trying to improve your chances of getting pregnant by natural means is to work with your body, never against it. Both men and women have cycles where they are more active and fertile. Learning to be in tune with your body and listen to these cycles can bring you closer to natural fertility.
There are many herbs out there, including St Johns Wort, that claim to be beneficial for increasing fertility and libido naturally. While most herbs are terrible in their raw form, the majority of fertility herbs are also available as supplements. Consuming fertility herbs in supplement form can help boost your fertility levels in the most natural way.
Studies also suggest that acupuncture can help increase fertility. One way acupuncture helps increase fertility is by improving blood flow within the uterus. This makes it easier for an embryo to implant. Second, IVF is extremely stressful, and stress hormones significantly decrease your chances of conceiving. However, acupuncture is relaxing and allows your mind to be more in tune with your body, which can help lower stress levels.
