I have listed the causes of male and female infertility below. Just read them carefully and check whether you or your husband is suffering form any one or more of them. If the answer is yes then be strict and try to remove the causes of infertility first and then follow my recommendations because if the cause is not removed than no formula can act. BUT if the answer is no, then directly go to the measures that should be taken to improve fertility.
Some causes of Male Infertility: Improper shape and movement of the sperm, No Sperms in the testicles, Low sperm count, Varicocele - Varicose vein in the scrotum, Undescended testicle, Deficiency of testosterone, Due to some infection, Problems in ejaculation.
Some causes of Female Infertility: Inflammation of Fallopian tube, Ovulation disorders, Early Menopause.
Common Problems: Stress, Malnutrition, Obesity or underweight, Cancer and its treatment, Other medical problems, Thyroid problems, Medications, Age, Pesticide and Chemical, Smoking, Alcohol and drugs.
Dear, go through the following points thoroughly and be sure to apply them in your routine.
1) Get into proper shape by exercising and following a proper diet. As it very important to have a normal hormonal balance for the conception. Being over weight or under weight could just help your infertility woes.
2) Stop Smoking completely. It has been found that smoking cigarette decreases sperm count in men. Women who smoke could no longer conceive.
3) Avoid Alcohol. This too results in low sperm count. And is not good for women too.
4) Best position. It is not sexist, but man on top and woman lying down is the best position for conception. Once the ejaculation happen, women should lie for at least 5 minutes in the same position.
5) Use of Lubrication. Avoid petroleum jelly, K-Y jelly as these are known as sperm killers; instead use liquid paraffin which is available with most chemists.
6) You can use egg white as a vaginal lubricant to help your conception process. The optimum use can be made when the woman is fertile. Do not use it for treating vaginal dryness. Do not try this if you are allergic to eggs.
7) If you are having irregular periods it means you are not ovulating. Consult a doctor.
8) Do not douche as this may not help the conception procedure.
9) Keep testicles cool. Avoid tight clothes and close-fitting underwear.
10) Abstain for sometime from intercourse so that the sperm count increases. Daily intercourse can decrease the sperm count.
TREATMENT (I know that you will have to put in some efforts to follow my suggestions, but dear I tell you that if you follow them you will get your desire of becoming mother for the second time fulfilled very soon.)
1) Using Banyan Roots
The tender roots of the banyan tree are one of the valuable remedies found beneficial in the treatment of female sterility where there is no organic defect or congenital deformities. These roots should be dried in the shade and finely powdered. About twenty grams of this powder should be mixed with milk, which should be five times the weight of this powder, and taken at night for three consecutive nights after the monthly periods are over. When this remedy is administered, no other food should be eaten for a short while thereafter. This remedy should be repeated after the completion of the menstrual cycle every month till conception takes place.
2) Using Jambul Leaves
An infusion of the fresh tender leaves of Jambul fruit is an excellent remedy for sterility or miscarriage due to an ovarian or endometrium functional disorder. The infusion can be prepared by pouring 250 ml of boiling water over 20 gm of fresh Jambul leaves, and allowing it to steep for two hours. The infusion may be taken with either two teaspoons of honey or 200 ml of buttermilk.
3) Using Winter Cherry
The herb winter cherry is another valuable remedy found helpful in sterility. The herb should be powdered and six grams of this powder should be taken with one cup of milk for five to six nights after menstruation.
4) Using Nutrients
Certain nutrients, especially vitamins C and E, and zinc, have been found helpful in some cases of sterility. A woman who is unable to conceive should take 1000 mg of vitamin C, 100 I.U. of vitamin E and 30 mg of zinc daily.
Seeds, nuts, curd and cottage cheese.
Physical debility and functional faults of organic nature can be cured by simple and effective methods of natural treatment, of which optimum nutrition is an essential part. Fasting is the best remedy for the treatment of disorders resulting from toxins in the system. A short fast of two or three day should be undertaken at regular intervals by women who are unable to bear children. Diet is an important factor in the treatment of infertility. It should contain seeds, nuts, grains, vegetables, and fruits. These foods should be supplemented with milk, vegetable oils, and honey. Curd and cottage cheese are also recommended. About seventy to eighty per cent of the diet should consist of foods in their natural uncooked state, because cooking destroys much of the nutritional value of most foods. Sprouting is an excellent way of consuming seeds, beans, and grains in their raw form, as in the process of sprouting, the nutritional value is multiplied, new vitamins are created and the protein quality is improved.
Food to be avoided
I recommend you to avoid your best the following foods:
Excessive fat, spicy foods, strong tea, coffee, white sugar, white flour, refined cereals, flesh foods, greasy or fried foods.
Warm water enema
The bowels should be cleansed by a warm-water enema during the period of fasting and afterwards when necessary. This will have a beneficial effect not only on the digestive system but also on the surrounding organs of the urinary and genital system.
Mud packs and cold water treatments
Other helpful measures in overcoming female sterility are mud packs and cold-water treatments like a hip bath and wet girdle pack. These treatments greatly improve internal circulation in the genital organs and relieve them of all kinds of inflammation and other abnormalities. Mud packs may be applied to the abdomen and sexual organs. The cold hip bath should be taken for ten minutes at a water temperature of 10degree C-18.3 degree C. For a wet girdle pack, a thin underwear wrung in cold water should be worn. Over this, a thick, dry cotton or woolen underwear should be worn. All cold treatments should be suspended during menstruation.
Important: You should find out the most fertile days during your menstrual cycle and indulge in baby making activity particularly on those days. If your menstrual cycles are regular then the following formula can help you. Just substract number 18 from your total cycle days. For example: If you have 30 days cycle, then substract 18 form 30 and you will get 12. It means your ovulation (most fertile period) will take place on any day from day 12 and one week onwards. You can indulge in baby making activity on 12th day, 14th day, 16th day and 18th day. (Note: also tell your husband not to indulge in any sexual activity or masturbation 2-3 days before your ovulation period, this will increase the sperm count and hence the chances of pregnancy.)
