Female infertility - supplements that may help

Posted by Mark Hamilton on

Fertility for women.

Infertility is described as the failure to achieve pregnancy after 12 months of unprotected sex.

Vitamin E: The antioxidant vitamin E is recognized as a nutrient for sexual ailments. Early studies found that animals couldn't reproduce and males' testicles shrunk without vitamin E in their diet. A few years later, in the 1940s and 50s, scientists gave women vitamin E for hot

flushes, vaginal dryness and other menopausal symptoms. Many naturopathic doctors continue to successfully use this treatment for their patients experiencing menopause symptoms. Many also recommend vitamin E-rich foods such as vegetable oils, whole grains, seeds and nuts to help sexual problems.

Zinc deficiency can also cause sexual dysfunction in women, a condition that's reversible with supplementation, says Suleyman Dincer, M.D., from the S.B. Ankara Hospital in Turkey. Ironically, synthetic estrogens used in oral contraceptives deplete zinc as do diuretics. Foods high in zinc include seafood, meat, root vegetables, nuts and whole grains.

Diet and lifestyle – regular exercise to improve blood sugar control and optimise body weight / composition. Reduce saturated fats. Increase antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables.
