Oftentimes a woman decides to have a baby only to learn it isn’t as easy to conceive as she was first led to believe. Amazingly, of all the days in a month you are only able to conceive during a very limited number depending upon your menstrual cycle. You can indeed figure out which days you are most fertile, known as your time of ovulation, using various methods such as those found in Fighting Female Infertility. However, even once you learn of your most fertile days you may still find yourself disappointed month after month. Perhaps your reproduction system just isn’t working to its best ability. Maybe it simply needs some TLC, tender loving care, to get it back on track. Luckily there are a few things you can do to increase your fertility and therefor increase your chances of getting pregnant. Read on to learn of some things you can do to keep your reproductive system working to its fullest potential naturally.

Increase Fertility Through Balance

One thing you can pay attention to while trying to get pregnant is the balance in your life. This means you need to seek balance physically, mentally and spiritually. Happiness and harmony can have a great influence on your ability to conceive. Life can offer many stressful situations which can in turn cause your body to release a higher level of stress hormones – which THEN trigger hormone imbalances. Stress and hormone imbalances can affect your ovulation cycle, perhaps even stopping it altogether, leading you to become infertile. To increase fertility naturally you must balance your life. Get exercise daily, refrain from watching awful reports on the news and open up some inspirational books.

Increase Fertility by Improving Your Diet

Another important step in taking care of your body properly in order to increase fertility naturally is to watch your diet. The proper balance (there’s that word again!) of healthy foods and drinks can boost your fertility. Think about what kind of foods you eat and what kind of drinks you consume. Eliminate from your diet anything containing artificial products or any genetically modified organisms (GMO’s). Include in your diet fresh fruits and vegetables and lean cuts of protein. Try to stick to high quality organic meats and sea fish. While improving fertility your goal should be to consume foods rich in vitamins and minerals.

Increase Fertility by Supplementing with Herbs

You can also boost your fertility naturally with the assistance of herbs. Different herbs will work on different organ systems and some can be used independently while others give better results in conjunction with one another. Each person is different, so if you have a fertility problem you should only use herbs that are related to your specific problem under the direction of a physician. Some herbs can even be so effective they can treat several problems at once. Before starting any herbal program be sure to have a good understanding of each herb you plan to use.

Increase Fertility Using Chinese Traditional Medicine

Chinese Traditional Medicine is well known for its results and there are many benefits to using it. Western medicine only treats the specific part of your body and its specific symptoms while Chinese Traditional Medicine (CTM) treats your entire body. CTM works on the basis that illness can show up because your body energies are not balanced. Acupuncture and acupressure are two ways to rebalance your body energies thus causing your body to treat itself naturally – even your fertility issues.

Remember, these are just a few general bits of advice of what you can do to increase your fertility when trying to get pregnant – without drugs! To learn more ways you can increase your fertility naturally visit

      Thanks Melovy! I think both Western and Chinese medicines have their strong points. The best healthcare plan should combine the two - in my humble opinion :)

      Im so glad you stopped in to give your say on both methods of increasing fertility. I can tell you are a wonderful mommy just form your Hubs. You have so much information that newer mommies (like me) can use!! And its because you did all that reading huh?

      This is full of very useful ideas for anyone having difficulty conceiving. I’m long past that stage now, but I had plenty of problems and can vouch for all of these. What you write about achieving balance is so important.

      I am also so glad to see you included Chinese medicine as I feel sure my first daughter would not be here without it! (And my second owes her life to Western medicine and health care so I appreciate both.) Just reading your reply to RHW, and I think that my struggles to conceive made me far more thoughtful about parenting than I would otherwise have been.

      Voting up!

      Hi there Cardisa :) You are so smart! I will do one for the men. I've read several ways men can naturally increase sperm potency and count. Thank you so much for reading and for the idea.

      Hi Debby :) Thank you so much. Hopefully this helps make some happy families. Too cute!

      RHW, Aaw. I HATE hearing about the best mommies who struggled to get their precious little bundles. Im so glad you had a happy ending.

      THis is a great article - I wanted Syd for 7 years before I finally got pregnant - I'd really given up. Then I got the flu - but it was just lasting I decided maybe it was mono and went to the doctor. Hm wasn't I surprised:) lol

      This is wonderful. I had no idea that all these could increase fertility. Very useful for a lot of women. Maybe you could follow up with one for the men!

      Hi Haunty, when someone wants a baby in the worst way possible he or she will try anything to fulfill that need. My first baby was difficult to conceive - and I wanted her so so bad. I would've walked on my hands for a month straight if it meant getting her sooner :)

      Hi PCC, I always think the natural approach is best. Thanks for reading

      Hello stephhicks :) Yes, more rest = more relaxed = more fertility. I say forget the expensive drugs, go naturally. Thanks for coming on!

      Great tips Ardie! I love the idea of using herbs and acupuncture/TCM to increase fertility. Lots of sleep to minimize stress is another helpful tip. Best, Steph
