Natural Home Remedies For Infertility In Women


Female Infertility is one of the prevailing problems in the society.

The good news is that you can get pregnant naturally without invitro fertilization and other Assisted Conception treatments by using natural and herbal remedies.

Just like Every other Diseases, Infertility in Women indicates a reproductive system problem that needs to be corrected. The body can often resolve the problem itself if given the necessary natural resources

What is Female Infertility

A woman is said to be infertile if for one reason or the other she is unable to get pregnant after a year of unprotected sexual intercourse.

Women who get pregnant BUT can’t stay pregnant probably due to miscarriages or other reasons may also be considered as infertile.

Getting pregnant is a process with the following stepsfemale infertility

  1. Ovulation: This is when the woman’s body releases egg from one of the ovaries
  2. The released egg will then move through the Fallopian tube towards the uterus or womb
  3. A sperm must swim up the cervix to fertilize the egg along the way
  4. Implantation: The fertilized egg will then adhere or attach itself to the inside of the uterus.

Infertility in women can occur if there are problems with any of the steps of this process

Furthermore, Infertility may be classified as Primary Infertility or Secondary Infertility Depending on previous pregnancy history.

Primary infertility is defined as a couple who has never been pregnant.

Secondary infertility describes a couple who are having trouble conceiving again, even though they have previously achieved pregnancy.

Causes Of Infertility In Women

Various factors are responsible for infertility in women. Here are some of them.

Ovulatory Disorder

Kinds of ovulatory disorder are Anovulation (no ovulation) and Oligovulation (irregular ovulation). Without ovulation, there are no egg to be fertilized. Ovulatary Disorder is a common cause of infertility in women which occurs in up to 40% infertile women. Ovulatory Disorder is often characterized by absent or irregular menstrual period

Causes of ovulatory disorder

  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome(PCOS): This is the most common cause of ovulatory disorder. PCOS is a condition marked by many cyst in the woman’s ovaries (ovarian cyst) It has to do with hormone imbalance problem.
  • Primary Ovarian Insufficiency or Premature Ovarian Insufficiency(POI): This is a situation in which the woman’s ovary stops working normally before she is 40
  • Hypothalamic Dysfunction: This is when the production of the two hormones that stimulates ovulation is affected by stress or substantially high or low body weight.

Blocked or Damaged Fallopian Tube

When this occurs, sperms are often prevented from reaching the egg or the fertilized egg is prevented from reaching the uterus.

Causes of blocked or damaged Fallopian Tube

  • Pelvic Infections (PID): A situation in which Fallopian tube and uterus are affected as a result of sexually transmitted infections like chlamydia, gonorrhea etc.
  • Endometriosis
  • Prior surgery in the pelvic region for ectopic pregnancy, or hysterectomy may lead to scar formation and fallopian tube damage.


Cervical Problems

This can also cause infertility in women by preventing the sperm from passing through the cervical canal towards the fallopian tube.

Causes of Cervical Problems

  • Abnormal mucus production preventing the sperm from swimming into the uterus
  • Cervical narrowing which is often caused by damage to the cervix or inherited malformation



This is at times a painful condition in which the tissues that normally grows in the uterus starts growing in other locations outside the uterus. This tissue growth itself or the surgical removal can lead to scarring and adhesions which may cause blockage of the fallopian tube. Similarly, Endometriosis causes Endometriomas (Ovarian Cyst) which is often associated with fertility problems.

A woman with endometriosis MAY have painful periods, pain during or after sexual intercourse, pain with bowel movement.


Uterine Causes

These are often due to abnormal anatomy of the uterus (abnormal shape) and Presence of polyps and Fibroids.

However, many women with polyps and fibroids get pregnant but may not stay pregnant due to the high likelihood of miscarriage.


Unexplained Infertility

This is when the cause of the infertility cannot be determined using the currently available method of investigation. This problem may correct itself with time.


Symptoms of Infertility in Women

There aren’t any specific symptoms of infertility in women apart from the major symptom which is not getting pregnant. However, there may be symptoms which often depends on the underlying cause of the infertility. Here are some symptoms that may indicate infertility problem in women.

  1. Irregular Periods: When the number of days between each period varies monthly
  2. Absent or Suddenly stopped period.
  3. Too long menstrual cycle (35 days or more) or too short (less than 21 days)
  4. Very Painful Period
  5. Repeated miscarriages
  6. Pelvic Inflammatory diseases
  7. Milky white discharge from nipple which does not relate to pregnancy
  8. Skin changes which often includes more acne
  9. Change in libido
  10. Pains during or following intercourse


Factors that can increase the risk of infertility in women

  • Age: Women have finite number of eggs. Therefore as a female grow old, the quality and the quantity of the egg reduces. At mid 30s, getting pregnant becomes more challenging and there is increased risk of miscarriage.
  • Alcohol: Excess drinking has been associated with higher risk of ovulatory disorders and endometriosis
  • Smoking or being exposed to passive smoke: This increases the risk of miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy, damages the cervix and the fallopian tube. Smoking is also assumed to cause aging in the ovary, Hence depleting eggs prematurely.
  • Stress: Either emotional or physical stress both tend to increase the chance of ovulatory disorder and hormonal imbalance.
  • Sexually Transmitted Infections:  STIs such as chlamydia, gonorrhea etc can damage the fallopian tube. Having unprotected intercourse with multiple partners increases the risk of contacting a sexually transmitted disease.
  • Weight: Getting to a healthy Body Mass Index (BMI) has been proven to increase ovulation frequency and likelihood of pregnancy. Hence, normal ovulation may be prevented by being over weight (BMI more than 29) or being underweight (BMI less than 19)


Diagnostic Tests for Infertility in Women

Before natural or herbal home remedies are administered for female infertility, there is need for diagnostic tests so that the root cause of the infertility can be known and addressed Testing for infertility in women usually begins with a health care provider doing a physical examination and asking about your medical history. Fertility tests may include

  • Ovulation Tests: A woman may track the occurrence and pattern of ovulation by checking cervical mucus, recording of basal temperature, or using home ovulation prediction kit which are available over the counter. If you don’t have a positive home ovulation tests, then a blood test for progesterone (a hormone produced after ovulation) can prove that you’re ovulating. Other hormone levels, such as prolactin, may as well be checked.
  • Imaging Tests: A Pelvic ultrasound or other imaging tests to check for uterine or fallopian tube disease.
  • Hysterosalpingography: This is done to check if the fallopian tubes are free and normal. Either dye or saline and air are injected into the cervix and travel up through the fallopian tubes while the movement is monitored by X ray. In some women, Hysterosalpingography itself can improve fertility, possibly by flushing out and opening the fallopian tubes.
  • Laparoscopy: This is a minor surgical procedure involving the insertion of a slender tube fitted with a fiberoptic camera through a small incision just below the navel, giving the doctor a clear view of all pelvic organs. Laparoscopy may identify endometriosis, scarring, blockages or irregularities of the fallopian tubes, and problems with the ovaries and uterus.

  • Please what is Hog plum in yoruba and how does one get d stem bark. Is this remedy to relieve symptoms of fibroid or to shrink it.

    • Just boil them together (30 pieces of palm kernel nut with the same quantity of stem bark of hog plum) You don’t need to crush. You should also start taking the treatment for unexplained infertility for faster results.

  • I tried to buy the palm kernel seed but d woman selling dosnt evn know if its the unripe one. And she sells for 100 naira per seed.dint knw its dat expensive. Pls do u know how to use aligator pepper or mustard seed too to shrink fibroid. What is the combination of each with other herbs.

    • Tokunbo, You can always get very cheap palm kernel in places or villages where palm oil is being produced.

      Furthermore, A blend of Alligator pepper, ginger, coconut and african red pepper and castor oil seed will also shrink fibroid. But it has to be prepared rightly.

      Also, Taking mistletoe alone can solve the fibroid problem.

      PLEASE, Send me mails for personal issues like this instead of comments.

  • What is mistletoe called in yoruba language. Is Combining a blend in capsule and other means good for fibroid shrinking

    • Hello lizzy,
      Mistletoe in yoruba language is Afomo. I don’t understand what you mean by “combining a blend in capsule and other means” do explain in details.

      • I just got mistletoe growing on a lemon tree. My mum dried and blended the leaves for me. Can I take mistletoe along with vitex (I am making the tincture myself) sir?

  • PlS what is the yoruba name for the fertility plant?I’m having problem with ovulation
    I don’t think I’m ovulating
    Pls help me

    • Hi Biola, I don’t think vitex has yoruba name since it is not a plant native to nigeria.
      For high prolactin cases, fertility plant and ginger works perfectly fine

      • Vit ex is available in nigeria. It’s called ata iyere. U can buy it from local herb shops operated by yorubas. I know cos I just bought it in kaduna for that matter.

  • Hi Ife, My name is funmi, i am in portharcourt, Nigeria. Wonderful writeup. Please i want to know if you can help me make herbs for a certain infertility issue.

  • Hi I had an abortion of 3 months old since 2002 after that I ve not gotten pregnant I ve tried to but no avail. Don’t know wat to do I realy want to get pregnant. Pls I need ur help.

      • Ife, i am an ardent reader of your stuff you are doing a very good job, Gods blessings, i have been married for quite some time and in my mid thirties, i have done all the test and has taken all the fertility treatment you can think of but to no avail, last year i conceived for the first time after many years of TTC but unfortunatly for me it was ectopic pregnancy, i am left with a tube, pls i need natural herbs for me and my hubby cos we dont know what the problem is, i will be glad if you can reply and tell me what to do.

    • Hello maureen,
      Most of those herbs are not indigenous to nigeria. Since they are international herbs you can get them as supplements (pills, syrup and powder form).
      Nevertheless, you can send me mail concerning your specific situation so that i can advice appropriately.

  • Hi Ife,please what is the treatment for a woman who is married for two years now without any issue yet,ultrasound tests say the uterus,ovaries are in good shape,no cysts,fibroids. But the lenght of the cycle varies from month to month,and can’t really identify that egg-like mucus that signifies Ovulation.

    • Hey Onyinye,
      Varying cycle length can be caused by a lot of things such as hormonal imbalance, abnormal thyroid or pituitary function etc. but you may still be ovulating.
      The first thing is to confirm if you are ovulating or not before we move to the next stage.

      • I stumbled on your blog and find it interesting as I have been trying for a child. Please can one combine the supplements like vitex with the concortions you advised for the various ailments?

    • Thanks Ife,yes I do think I ovulate too because sometimes towards the middle of my cycle I do feel wet and slight stomach pain and have targeted intercourse at that time,yet haven’t conceived.
      Another thing Ife,my doctor who suggested hormonal imbalance or insufficient thyroid as you said and he placed me on clomid which I’ve taken for 2 cycles now,but that clomid seems to increase my weight. Now my weight is 74kg from 68.

      • Hey onyinye,
        I guess your doctor placed you on clomid probably because he felt you are not ovulating.
        You can try an ovulation test so as to be sure.
        However, have you considered the possibility of the fact that the problem may not actually be coming from you?
        Please send me a mail so that we can make the chat more private.

  • Good evening. I am so glad to have stumbled on your article on infertility which is quite educative and also very helpful for me. My challenge is that most of the herbs mentioned cannot be gotten in the local market with the english names you gave. I was actually searching for yoruba names of some herbs when I saw your blog and decided to check it out. May I have the yoruba translations of the herbs mentioned so I can easily purchase them in the market? I am eagerly awaiting your response. Thanks so much for your help.

    • Hello Tope,
      Thanks for the compliment.
      Some of the herbs mentioned are not local herbs e.g vitex, tribulus etc, so they don’t have yoruba names. But the ones I gave its mode of preparation are local herbs so they have nigerian names. Kindly specify the ones you want so that i can supply the names.

  • i’m from benin republic and i’m a medical doctor. i also use the alternative medecine. i’m interested by your development. i want to know: could we find all these plants and roots in our environment? thanks

  • Hello sir,

    Just stumbled across your blog site tonite. Nice work. I’m really impressed about the timely way you responded to each of your reader’s comment. Please, I’ve been having issues conceiving now for close to two years. Had a surgery to remove uterine fibroid because the gyn said perharps that was what was blocking my tubes. After the surgery, I had an HSG done and the result said “no free peritoneal and no spillage of dye” and that my tubes are not well outlined. Please what does this mean and what can I use or do to solve this challenge? Plus I tried sending you a mail just now but it bounced back. Kindly send me an email and pls drop your phone number for contacts.
    Thank you.

      Dr.Edibie mudu
      It’s no secret that couples these days are having an
      increasingly difficult time conceiving. Even young women
      in their 20’s who should have no trouble in this area are
      sometimes finding it a challenge to let nature take its course.
      How long has it been,maybe a year or two or even more
      you been trying to have a baby,the doctor have said so much
      that you are loosing hope,all you thinking now is to go adopt
      a child,weep no more because as long as their is life their
      is hope.Thanks to Dr.Edibie mudu who is spiritually endowed
      by the gods to use his power to save those that are hopeless,
      He is specializes in “CONSULTATION OF ORACLE”,

    • Hi Favour,
      You may actually not need to worry about the cyst. You may need to get hormonal assay especially if you have been trying to get pregnant for about 2years.

  • well done Mr Ife for this great work. thanks a million
    pls I have bilateral blocked tube and did flushing once which is hydrotubation
    my doctor ask me to wait for two cycles before another tube flushing. pls I want to know if their is Yoruba herbs that can help to open my tube. your response will be appreciated thanks

    • Hi Titilayo,
      I don’t actually subscribe to hydrotubation. Most times i see it as a waste of time. However, some women might get pregnant after the process but it is not actually because of the flushing. Fallopian tubes are more sophisticated that pipes that need to be flushed. There are herbs that may help you.
