10. Yarrow

One of the most versatile herbs in the world, it works well when combined with other fertility herbs. Yarrow is a well-known plant that stimulates fertility by encouraging menstruation and regulating a normal menstrual flow. It has antispasmodic compounds that help stop cramps and is a natural anti-inflammatory as well.

Yarrow stops inflammation of the uterus and relieves congestion to improve the overall circulation in the reproductive system. Yarrow can also stop heavy bleeding, which is often a sign of ovarian cysts, or uterine fibroids. Yarrows most helpful feature is it can help find the appropriate ground for the implantation of fertilized egg cells.


11. Maca

This is a plant native to Peru and is available in almost all health food stores in a capsule form. Maca has been used for thousands of years to improve female fertility. It’s said to increase the libido in men and improve sperm count. For women, maca regulates hormone production and improves the health of their eggs. Maca helps with PCOS and endometriosis, both causes of infertility.

12. Damiana

This is another very old herb that has been used for hundreds of years as both an aphrodisiac as well as for the improvement of fertility. During the 19th century, damiana was a normal part of pharmacopoeia and accepted by most doctors as an effective treatment. This plant is normally taken as either a tea or a tincture. Damiana regulates the menstrual cycle and is thought to give nourishment to the reproductive system.

You should note that herbs are mild in action and results are rarely instantaneous. Use them consistently and allow several months for them to work their magic. Always consult your doctor if you are taking any other type of prescription drugs or fertility drugs as there can be interactions.
