Natural Tips to Overcome Infertility

Infertility can give anxious and trying times to couples who have been trying unsuccessfully to start a family. The desperation to have a baby is quite understandable and many couples seek medical treatments for infertility. It is also true that out of desperation couples seeks infertility treatments even before they are sure of their spouse’s infertility. So how do you define fertility? It is a state of being unable to produce offspring; in a woman it is an inability to conceive; in a man it is an inability to impregnate.

And a couple is considered as infertile only when they have failed to conceive after having unprotected sex for a period of one year at a frequency of three times a week. So the first of the natural tips to overcome infertility is increasing the frequency of your sexual intercourse to at least three times a week.

Male infertility is mainly cause by reduced sperm production. A man whose sperm count is less than forty million is considered infertile. Moreover the motility of the sperm, i.e., their swimming ability also affects the fertility in men. A natural way to increase sperm count is to avoid tight briefs. A warm crotch area lowers sperm counts. Wear loose underwear or try shorts especially while sleeping. Also sperm count is at its maximum during the early hours of the day. Guess you won’t mind getting up a little earlier than normal to take advantage of this natural benevolence. So you have just come to know of the second tip.

Another cause of infertility may be traced to use of vaginal lubricants which contains spermicide. As such, next time to buy a lubricant, make sure that it does not have spermicide.

In women, some factors responsible for infertility includes age, smoking, drinking, use of drugs, obesity, damaged or blocked fallopian tubes, ovulation disorders etc. Some factors are beyond your control. However some are definitely in your hands. Always try to start a family before you turn 35. Women fertility gets deteriorated with the process of aging. The menstrual cycle is longer and unpredictable; the quality of the eggs released also gets lowered as a woman gets older. Again, you can eat healthy; avoid smoking, drinking, or use of drugs, and take an exercise regime to overcome infertility.
