Infertility Facts – Ayurvedic Treatment For Infertility

You have been trying to conceive for a while and are not successful yet, the suspicion about infertility may start growing on you. Whether or not to consult a doctor becomes a matter of confusion. Under such circumstance, there are a few things that you should know and few steps to follow.

Infertility facts –

If the wife has been taking oral contraceptive pill and stopped it very recently, then it might take anywhere between 3 months to 1 year for the body hormones to settle down and ovulation to restore. Hence no reason to lose hope within that period.

I personally do not recommend oral contraceptive pills (OCP) as a measure of contraception to anyone and especially for those who do not have any child. OCP messes up the hormonal balance in a healthy woman, and after stopping ocp, restoration of normal hormonal production may take time.

Soon after marriage, if a couple is trying for conception, they may give a try upto one year period. After which it is better to consult a doctor right away.

Both husband and wife should consult the doctor together.

Both husband and wife have to give up smoking and excess alcohol consumption habit, if any.

It is ideal to have sexual intercourse on alternative days between 10 – 22 days of menstrual cycle, if the menstrual cycle is of 28 – 30 days.

It is ideal to try for conception within 35 years of age, for both men and women. Chances for conception from there on goes down year by year.

Causes for infertility in men – Husband might be having varicocele, hernia, any structural deformity in the reproductory system, that might be causing problems in sperm quality or sperm count.

Poor nutrition, obesity, sedentary life habits are a few known causes for infertility in men and women.

Over exposure to pesticides, certain drugs can also cause infertility.

Heat can cause decreased sperm count or quality hence it is advised

  •  Not to keep laptop over the lap
  •  Not to wear tight pants
  •  People working near furnaces should always exercise caution.

Causes for infertility in women – Women might have infertility issues  because of blockage of fallopian tube, endometriosis, problems in egg release (ovulation), PCOS, etc.

sometimes, lack of suitable sex position causes semen to spill out, leading to infertility. In such cases, it is ideal to stick on to man on top position. Woman need to sleep in supine position (face facing upwards) for 5 – 10 minutes after intercourse to avoid spillage.

Ayurvedic treatment for infertility – 

In women –

If the cause is structural defect, like blockage of fallopian tube, Ayurvedic treatment will not help.

In cases of PCOS, irregular menstrual cycle etc, Ayurvedic treatment will be of use.

Ayurveda can help to lose weight, improve nutritional levels and to improve overall lifestyle of both husband and wife.

In men, there are effective medicines to improve sperm count, quality and motility. But for structural problems like varicocele, it is better to undergo surgery, after which Ayurvedic treatment can be taken to improve sperm count  and quality.
