black cohoshYou are doing all the necessary steps. You maintain a healthy lifestyle and you keep yourself fit. Still, no dice. Maybe it is not you. You just need a little more push. Here are some known natural female and men fertility boosters.

Although these are all natural fertility boosters, please check with your doctor before trying any herbal supplements or beginning an exercise routine.

Take folic acid

Folate is necessary for the production and maintenance of new cells. This is especially important during periods of rapid cell division and growth such as infancy and pregnancy.

Take vitex (chasteberry)

Vitex helps promote fertility by stabilizing the menstrual cycle and bringing on ovulation.

Try black cohosh

This herb is said to improve hormone functioning due to its phyto-estrogens.

Try evening primrose oil

EPO helps to promote favorable cervical mucus.

Eat a balanced diet

A balanced, whole-foods diet will help you maintain a normal BMI, a critical component in maximizing fertility. Foods with omega-3 fatty acids promote fertility.

Go walk

Walking may help boost fertility by increasing circulation to the pelvis and the reproductive organs, since some research has linked decreased blood-flow to the ovaries with ovarian aging.

Chart your fertility cycle

Charting your fertility for a few months can help improve your chances of getting pregnant by showing you what days are best for conception.

Try vitamins and supplements for men

Male fertility vitamins and herbal supplements promise to increase sperm count, motility, and quality. Although not verified by the FDA, it is believed that male fertility is helped by the following vitamins and herbal supplements:

  • Vitamin E
  • Zinc Sulfate
  • Yohimbe Bark
  • Coenzyme Q10
