Fertility Herbs

Black cohosh

Herbs have been used for centuries to treat health ailments. They can be used to promote fertility and can be considered to be a form of natural fertility medication. Because herbs can be very potent, it is important to speak with a registered naturopath before taking any herbal supplements. Herbs are most commonly used to treat female infertility include:

  • Red Clover Blossom
  • Licorice
  • Chastetree Berry
  • Black Cohosh
  • Dong Quai
  • Wild Yam
  • False Unicorn Root

For male infertility, Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng) (4 grams per day for three months) may be helpful. Before taking any supplement it is important to consult a healthcare provider who is familiar with herbs and their effect on fertility and your body in general. Just because it's "natural" doesn't mean that it's safe or effective.
