Not every woman of child-bearing age is able to conceive so easily, and the answer to the problem could be right under her nose.
The following tips may help you to pinpoint what’s causing your problems and may be something you can discuss with your doctor.
– Often when couples are trying to conceive, they are really stressed out about the whole idea. Will it work this time? Am I doing this right? Are we ready to be parents? These are all questions that might run through their heads, but you’re better off just going into the process of trying to conceive like just another passionate, intimate encounter with your significant other. Stress weakens immunity and works against what you’re trying to accomplish here, so you must find a way to relax and just go with the flow.
Hold the Wine
– If you’re trying to conceive, alcohol is an obvious no-no, as it can really lower male and female fertility, hampering the production of sperm and creating female hormone fluctuations.
– This is just another way of referring to the Chinese practice called acupuncture, which aims to correct any energy balances in the body by pricking the surface of the skin with needles at specific points. If there are some sort of blockage or imbalance that is causing dysfunction in the reproductive system, acupuncturists know which spots on the body to target in order to try and fix the problem. Though not entirely painless, the procedure is reportedly not as painful as one might think.
Go on the Pill
– Not the birth control pill, as that is a direct contradiction, right? There is a homeopathic pill called Sepia, which is created from the ink secretions of cuttlefish, that is particularly beneficial to women’s health. For the purpose of regulating hormones, improving blood circulation, stimulating ovulation and correcting menstrual problems (all of which could interfere with conception), you would need a 6C strength pill. This remedy should be administered under the careful supervision of a holistic doctor.
– Ingesting just 1 tbsp. per day of aloe vera in its gel or extract form can help keep the female reproductive system clean and clear of blockages and functioning well. Health food stores sell aloe vera juice most commonly, but be sure to look for the gel or extract consumable varieties.
– The leaves of this flowering plant can be made into a tea that may help to keep the fallopian tubes clear and functional, as well as help minimize swelling of ovarian cysts. The recommended regimen is about 3 cups a day for the next few months.
Keep it Moving
– Reportedly, making a lifestyle change of walking regularly at a fairly quick pace is a great way of keeping the female reproductive system working at top notch. Walking strengthens muscles in the pelvic area and helps to regulate cycles and hormones, with the steady flow of blood and oxygen that exercise creates.
Diet, Diet, Diet
– Diet is everything. What you put in your body will directly affect your baby and, even before then, can determine if you’re able to conceive in the first place. Steer clear of starchy foods, which upset the pH balance of your vaginal fluid, causing it to be more alkaline rather than acidic.
Alkaline vaginal fluid hampers conception, while acidic vaginal fluid is a better environment for conception to take place. Also, be sure to include folic acid (vitamin B9) in your diet well before the process of conception begins and continue using it throughout your pregnancy to protect your unborn child from birth defects.
