With the population boom in full blast, infertility problems in couples may seem like a rare occurrence. Sadly there are many people facing difficulty conceiving due to numerous issues. Medical statistics according to Nice (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence), estimate that one couple in every seven couples are affected by infertility in the UK.
The good news is that Homeopathy offers an excellent option to couples who wish to boost their fertility naturally. It can help couples who are seeking assistance with becoming pregnant or as a support physically and/or emotionally for those undergoing fertility treatments such as IVF or IUI.
A large number of women undergo fertility treatments such as IVF or IUI, some resort to ovulation drugs, some follow treatments for PCOS while many others try to avoid pregnancy mishaps like miscarriage. Nowadays more and more couples are opting for Homeopathy as it takes more of a holistic approach in boosting overall health at the same time as tackling fertility issues and any emotional challenges that may also arise.
The inability to become pregnant after at least a year of trying to conceive is termed as infertility. Many women face difficulty conceiving due to a number of reasons such as age, uterine, menstrual or ovulation problems, sexually transmitted diseases, endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), history of miscarriages, low libido, hormonal disorders or for unexplained reasons. For men infertility may be due to problems related to motility and quality of sperm, complications after sexually transmitted diseases, low libido or genetic or autoimmune dysfunctions.
Besides medical reasons, excessive drinking, smoking, drugs, weight issues, nutritional deficiencies, and toxins also affect both men and women’s reproductive health. Emotions too have a huge impact on our health and often surround fertility problems.

Sperm count and sperm motility were improved by homeopathy and the improvement was comparable with conventional treatment.

A research trial of 45 sub-fertile men showed that homeopathy improved both the number and the quality of sperm. Significant changes were found in sperm density, percentage of sperm with good progressive motility and density of sperm with good propulsive motility. The general health of the patients also improved significantly. It did not matter whether these men were subject to stress or had been childless for a long period of time.

“I suffer with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and was told by doctors it would be very hard to conceive and I probably would need IVF. I decided to use homeopathy to see would this help me. I started on my remedy in conjunction with mild fertility treatment. This homeopathic remedy helped stimulate my ovaries and also helped with the side effects I was experiencing from the fertility drugs. After a couple of months I got pregnant and I am due my baby any day. I firmly believe homeopathy played a huge part in finally getting pregnant. Overall it helped release negative thoughts and stress I had during this process. In the end I didn’t need IVF! ”
