View Full Version : herbs for concieving
just wanted to know if any of you know of any herbs to help u fall pregant,
I would advise seeing a Chinese medicine practitioner rather than "winging it" off internet suggestions.
after 1 year with no success i used a herbal tincture of shatavari :thumbsup: baby born 11 months after i first started it... i went to a herbal and well being place to get it.. cost $26:yes:
I am currently doing Traditional Chinese Medicine (Herbs) to help conceive... they arn't exactly a miracle drug and are going to MAKE you fall pregnant.. Just help you fall pregnant, so you still have to be able to time it etc...
My herbs have helped keep my tempratures high enough so that a egg can survive, they have helped regular my periods a bit and also lightened my AF by alot!
I would suggest going to talk to someone who is qualified with the herbs to help you along the way.
p.s they are not always cheap either!
iam seeing a acupunturist and have been doing acpunture for 3 weeks
to help bring on my periods and to help me ovulate
but she hasnt given me any herbs as of yet.
but i will go ask her
dreamtobeamummy- what herbs are you taking to help regulate your periods and to help you ovulate.
thankyou for your help
My acupuncturist is my qualified herbalist, she has made up a remedy especially for my case.. its called Jin Gui Shen Qi Wan.. I take one flat teaspoon twice a day before or after meals.. they say to mix it in hot water but I found that the worst way to take it and my acupuncturist has suggested mixing it in honey (so it all sticks together) and that helps it slide down and takes some of the taste away.. My herbs have been getting stronger and stronger though as my temprature wasn't high enough to be able to have a eggie survive!
HTH (any other questions fire away ill try my best to answer them)
Its a hard road :hugs:
Agree see someone that knows what they are doing re herbs, and I also think everyone should look into anything a practitioner wants to give you, regardless of it being a doctor or acupuncturist or anyone doing the recommending/prescribing.
After all it's our bodies that its going into.
Probably not what you were after, butI can say, regular evening primrose oil capsules (I'm taking a linseed, fish and evening primrose oil mix) has made a massive difference in CM for me, and being able to pinpoint fertile times so much easier seems like a logical positive step in timing dtd. :thumbsup:
So I would suggest giving that a go, as taking it can do no harm and is helpful for your hair and skin and PMS symptoms and a plethora of other things anyway.
so sorry to crash your thread people... :o
Zel, do you mind telling me the brand of those capsules? it's just what I have been looking for for DD
No worries Jag, they are
"herbs of gold" - Ultra Omega - 3,6,9
I'm sure there are other types of linseed, fish and evening primrose oil mixes..
But I get that one as it's super cheap, 200 caps for 14$ or similar?
