For centuries, women have been taking various herbal blends in hopes of having a baby.
These natural herbal fertility remedies have withstood the test of time. They offer couples a potential alternative to drugs, surgery and other interventions.
Although scientific studies are lacking, the herbs in one blend were developed by an Ob/Gyn. These medicinal plants have a long history of being used to treat “female problems.”

Please understand that I’m not giving medical advice. Nor am I promising that a particular formula or supplement will deliver a long-awaited bundle of joy. All I’m doing is sharing information that’s already published elsewhere.
As someone who’s personally experienced the heartbreak of infertility and pregnancy loss, I was thrilled to find an herbal tea designed to increase the likelihood of conception.
I just wished I had found it back when I was trying to conceive. (Yes I’m past the age where bearing a child is a possibility. But I’m hopeful the information can help someone else.)
The older I get, the more I realize that our bodies are designed to work properly. When this doesn’t happen, it’s believed that medicinal herbs can possibly help restore balance.
If I had been more knowledgeable about natural medicine back when I wanted a family, I certainly would have given fertility herbs a try. I also wish I’d paid a lot more attention to my overall health and nutrition when I was hoping, month after month to become pregnant.
What I didn’t take into account was my poor diet. Is it possible all the processed food I loved wasn’t helping my efforts to become a mother? However, at the same time, I was depressed. So I turned to food for comfort.
Unfortunately, I didn’t begin to appreciate holistic healing until serious health problems hit, and were then resolved, with the help of natural remedies.
Herbal Fertility Treatment
Anyway, there are various herbal fertility supplements on the market. One of the more popular is FertilitiTea, shown below. This is a blend of six herbs with a long track record as fertility aids. This formula is designed to regulate the cycles and improve egg quality.
Herbalists often recommend specific medicinal blends because the individual components work in synergy. This means that each ingredient becomes more effective when taken with with complimentary herbs.
- Vitex, also known as chasteberry. This is used in many fertility supplements because of its reputation as a hormone balancer. In Europe, this plant is used as a natural endometriosis remedy by mainstream medical professionals.
- Green tea.
- Red Raspberry.
- Ladies Mantle. Herbalists often recommend this plant for women with ovarian cysts, or polycystic ovaries.
- Nettle Leaf. This herb is frequently used to modulate the immune system. (It’s also really good for hay fever.)
- Peppermint Leaf
Designed for women, FertiliTea was developed by an Ob/Gyn. But it takes two people to conceive. Oftentimes, men are often left out of the equation, while women are given strong drugs with potentially dangerous side effects.
The same company that makes FertiliTea also sells an herbal male fertility treatment, called FertilAid for Men. This is a mix of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants designed to increase sperm quantity and quality.
