A publication from Megan Kelly, writing in Mind Body Green…She is a Licensed Esthetician specializing in holistic nutrition, woman’s hormones, and natural beauty:-

Once a woman gets pregnant, she’s typically more aware than ever of what she is putting both in and on her body. But what about when trying to get pregnant?

It takes nearly a hundred days for a woman’s egg to mature before it’s ovulated and seventy-two days for a man’s sperm to form. This means that a three-month period of optimal nutrition for a couple will produce the healthiest possible egg and sperm and that it’s important to be conscious of good nutrition even before you conceive.

While preparing your body for pregnancy, you want to focus on nutrient dense foods. This means loading up your diet with fresh fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, clean nutrient dense proteins, essential fatty acids and healing herbs.

Preconception preparation could be something like this:


1. Fermented Cod Liver Oil/ Butter Oil Blend

Provides fat soluble vitamins A, E, D, K2, EPA, DHA, and Omega-3 fatty acid. These are essential nutrients for a healthy baby, healthy hormones, and healthy skin.

2. Raw Prenatal Vitamin

Make sure these are made from whole foods, not synthetic vitamins. This will ensure you are getting all of your necessary vitamins and minerals, especially B vitamins, magnesium and folate. Make sure the Folate is in the form of Metafolate not folic acid so your body can use and absorb this important nutrient.

3. Probiotic

Your healthy gut flora determines your babies immune system, a good probiotic will help with digestion, and create a healthy inner ecosystem for a baby to thrive in. (Fernandez L, Langa S, Martin V, Maldonado A, Jimenez E, et al. (2013)), ( The human milk microbiota: origin and potential roles in health and disease. Pharmacol Res 69: 1–10)

4. Herbal Tea Blends

Red Raspberry Leaf is an all-around excellent herb to use for pregnancy. It is a uterine tonic, anti-abortive, and helps prevent infection.

It would seem that along with a lot of other problems and diseases that are on the march in our countries, the causes of infertility are growing also and trying to conceive is a big issue for lots of loving married couples all around the world today.

In the year of 2000 one in ten couples who were trying to become pregnant were declared infertile, and now we have reached and passed that date by many years, and the figures are at a staggering (to me anyhow), one in six couples, and soon if the trend continues it could be as high as one in three, imagine that!!

If after 12 months of unprotected intercourse a baby is not on the way, infertility would be assumed.

In most countries, couples are able to get help for their causes of infertility, or lack of success when trying to conceive with assistance in the form of IVF under the Public Health System.

Basic knowledge on the causes of infertility.

There are also many good publications about natural infertility treatment that may be extremely helpful, and certainly worth exploring.

So is this a good thing or not?

Well one would have to think that it certainly appeals to many couples by looking at how many people ( and how many folk do you know, or know of ) who have gone down this path.

If you are over 35 years of age, have been living a good healthy lifestyle and been having intercourse at the right time each month with no success, well surely you are ready for some help.

It is also helpful to combine the medical intervention with natural means, acupuncture, and naturopathy, to help the body to function how it is meant to.


causes of infertilityOn the other side of the story, it would seem that IVF has become almost too readily available for some couples, ie some who are a bit ignorant of their bodies, and lack knowledge about falling pregnant.

I would believe that basic education is needed and has not been offered to some couples about the availability of pregnancy miracle books and natural infertility treatment to begin with to explain the causes of infertility.

Apparently many couples are turning up at IVF clinics, and really all they need is information on where and when women are fertile during their menstrual cycle, seems amazing that in this day and age women can be ignorant as was the case 50 years ago, when ‘things’ of that nature were not even spoken about, and half of the time I had to wonder if mothers themselves even knew too much about how the body works, and how they even really became pregnant, getting very unhelpful information from them that you could get pregnant off the toilet seat. I know that my introduction was very sketchy, with a “Talk to Girls” program at school one night. The boys had a different night, (would imagine the Mums were happy at that one)

It was reported that in Melbourne at two IVF clinics a study found that only 13% of women had a good understanding of when they were fertile in their cycle, while an amazing 53% had a poor understanding and 11% had no understanding at all, which meant that their causes of infertility was in some cases just due to basic knowledge of their bodies.

Knowing your body better and eliminating some of the causes of infertility.

Day 1 of your cycle is the first day of your period, when an average woman will hatch an egg, or ovulate on about the 14th day, and survival time is up to a week, but is at it’s peak for 48 hours when insemination needs to occur.

Some women will ovulate either side of the 14 day period, but a blood test can be done by a doctor in the early part of your cycle, or you may wish to purchase one of the many home kits available for this purpose, to pick up changes in your hormones to tell you if you are ovulating.

Other reliable signs are vaginal secretions, which change in texture, increased temperature, a slight pain on one side, increased libido, or a pimple or tears.

The causes of infertility are very many and varied, but these suggestions will help ………. having a good healthy diet… plenty of exercise for you both… keeping stress to a minimum… and don’t forget to have lots of fun together while you keep on trying for your pregnancy miracle.
