Here are some few other fertility issues a fertility self massage can help resolve.

  1. Endometriosis
  2. Irregular Ovulation
  3. Blocked fallopian tube
  4. Twisted Fallopian tube
  5. Uterine fibroids
  6. Unexplained Infertility
  7. Hormonal Imbalance
  8. Lack of Menstrual cycle
  9. Painful Menstruation
  10. Poor egg health
  11. Infertility due to stress
  12. PCOS

Self Fertility Massage Contraindications

Self fertility massage should NOT be done in the following instances

  1. While Pregnant: Especially during the first trimester, fertility massage on the uterus may affect the fetus and may cause abortion. Therefore do not do a self fertility massage when pregnant or when you think you may be.
  2. While Menstruating: Since fertility massage tends to affect blood flow, engaging in it during menstruation may increase flow, cause discomfort or even pain Do not do a fertility massage while menstruating
  3. If you have health issues, It is better to ask your doctor before performing a self massage for fertility.

 

Fertility Massage and Menstrual Cycle

The average length of female menstrual cycle is about 28 days.

These entire duration can be divided into four phases which are highlighted below:

  1. Menstrual phase (From day 1 to 5)
  2. Follicular phase (From day 1 to 13)
  3. Ovulation phase (Day 14)
  4. Luteal phase (From day 15 to 28)

For women Trying to Conceive,   Fertility massage should not be done during the luteal phaseThis is to avoid the risk of miscarriage incase implantation occurs immediately after ovulation. 

The best time for a fertility massage is after the menstrual phase till ovulation phase (From day 6 to 14).  

This is because the egg is produced, developed and released during this time, and self fertility massage can help direct regular supply of oxygenated blood and even distribution of hormone towards the reproductive area.

Women who are not trying to conceive but are only preparing their body can engage in self fertility massage anytime during the menstrual cycle EXCEPT during the menstruation.

 

How to Locate your Reproductive Organs

[sociallocker id=”963″]One of the major reason why self fertility massage is often recommended is because it helps to familiarize the woman with her reproductive organs.

For an effective self fertility massage, it is important that a woman know where her reproductive organ is, which are all located in the pelvic region.

 

Locating the Landmarks (Pubic bone and Navel)

The pubic bone, as well as the navel, will be often used as landmarks or indicators of where other reproductive organs may be located.

While you can see where your navel is, you will have to locate the pubic bone.

The pubic bone is located just above the pubic hairline.

Another method for locating the pubic bone is to unite your thumbs and index fingers in a triangle and place the thumbs on your navel.

Locate Pubic Bone fertility massage

The point where the index fingers meet is approximately where the pubic bone starts.

You will be able to feel it, as it will be harder to the touch than the rest of the area.

 

Locating the Uterus, Ovaries and Fallopian Tubes.

The uterus is between 3 to 4 inches in length and often pear-shaped. However, women’s anatomy may vary based on different factors such as lifestyle, genetics, etc. The approximate location of the uterus is between the pubic bone and the navel. It lies vertically directly above the bladder, that is about an inch above the pubic bone and like 4 inches below the navel.

Pubic Bone Fertility Massage

The Ovary is located approximately 3 inches to the left and right side of the uterus.

That is, 4 inches below the navel, then 3 inches to the right is the right ovary and 3 inches to the left is the left ovary.

The ovaries are linked to the uterus by the fallopian tubes.

 

Here is a brief video that sheds more light on the locating your reproductive organs.

  1. Apply pressure for about 1-2 minutes by using your fingertips on the acupressure points
  2. Then apply deep pressure using a clockwise motion for about 1 minute
  3. If you feel pain or discomfort, decrease your pressure or stop.

Here are images showing some important acupressure points.

  1. Ren 3: Stimulating this point helps regulate the menses, strengthening the kidneys and the urinary bladder.
  2. Ren 4: Stimulating this point (site of uterus) increases chi energy to aid conception
  3. Ren 6: This point is also called, the sea of Chi. When stimulated, it increases energy and vitality to the whole body.
  4. Zigong: The stimulation of this point increases blood flow to the ovaries and uterus, addressing infertility related to menstrual problems
  5. K16:  This point is the site of the kidney. When stimulated, it brings healing energy to the heart and kidney while clearing the mind and improving immunological function. Also, this point releases energy blocks in the abdomen that causes low fertility.
  6. St30: When stimulated it helps increase the function of the ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus by releasing stagnation.
  7. Ren 12: This point has an affinity for the spleen and the stomach and it is very important in draining the body of excess fluid and mucus production like fluid accumulated in the fallopian tubes, uterus, and urinary bladder.
  8. Ren 14:  This point when stimulated will help release your fears and relax your mind.
  9. Lv14:  This acupressure point is located below the breast, two ribs below the nipple. This point resolves liver and gastro intestinal complaints related to poor digestion experienced as sluggish feeling after eating. This point also helps those who suffer from premenstrual breast tenderness. When this point is stimulated, the sensual energy increases as well.

 

Reflexology Fertility Massage Technique

How to do a Comprehensive Self Fertility Massage

 

Requirements for Self Fertility Massage

The recommended time for a self massage for fertility is about half an hour prior to intercourse.

However, self fertility massage can be inculcated into one’s daily routine and be performed either in the morning, evening or whenever you can spare 20 to 30 minutes.

Much supplies are not needed for a self fertility massage. Below are basic requirements.

1 soft pillow
Massage oil (lavender, Jasmine, Olive oil, Castor Oil etc.)
A towel
A mat, bench or any even hard surface
Serene environment with soothing cool music

Before commencing the self massage, make sure your bladder is empty (you don’t feel like urinating)
Also if you are eating before the massage, eat light meal.

 

Performing the Self Fertility Massage (9 steps)

  1. Lie down, with your back on the mat, bench or the even hard surface.  While a soothing cool music is being played so as to make you relax.
  2. Place the towel under your head and a pillow under your lumbar region (i.e. containing the 5 vertebrae that form the curve in the back).
  3. Start with the Femoral Massage Technique on both legs by blocking the femoral artery (the area between your thigh and lower abdomen) with your four (4) fingers so that blood flow to the leg will stop and there will be increased blood flow to the reproductive organs for about 30 t0 45 seconds. This will take about 2 mins
  4. Get some massage oil on your hands and warm up your fingers.
  5. Press gently on your uterus and walk your way up and down, from the pubic bone to the navel and back.
    Press on the uterus and try pulling it up towards the navel. Hold the uterus in this position for a few seconds or until you count to 10. Repeat this exercise up to 15 times.
  6. Using the acupressure fertility massage technique, locate the fertility acu-points as described in the images above. Apply comfortable pressure on the points then massage in a clockwise direction for about 1 minute each. Spend 5 minutes in this section
  7. Sit down for a while and massage your feet using the reflexology technique. Pay extra attention to the reproductive organs, pituitary glands and endocrine glands. Do this for about 7 mins
  8. Lie down back again and massage your whole tummy with a clockwise circular motion starting from the navel till it covers the whole stomach.
  9. End the massage with another round of femoral massage technique

      Yes there are some herbs combinations that nourishes the growth of fibroids because of their high estrogenic/phytoestrogenic content.
