Chinese herbs have been used for centuries to help boost fertility. I have been an herbalist for many years and have helped many women get pregnant with herbs. The problem I find the most is that women will come in with an arsenal of supplements and herbs that they are taking just because they read somewhere that this would help with infertility when in fact what they are taking is making their infertility worse.

For example, I had a patient who had been having frequent miscarriages and was clearing having signs of high estrogen and low progesterone. She came to me taking a tea that was branded for infertility and Vitamin E. I asked her why she was taking these and she said because she read somewhere that this was good for infertility. I explained to her that the items she was taking were for women who are running low estrogen, so she was actually making her infertility worse. I took her off of those items and put her on the multivitamin for her body type (which was Opal/Hourglass) and also put her on Nuan Gong Yun Zi Pian (which helps elevate progesterone levels) and progesterone cream. She was finally able to hold on to her pregnancy and now has twins.

Some women come in with infertility problems because they have thyroid problems. These women will be treated differently than those with other hormone imbalances. For this reason I highly urge women who want to get pregnant to select supplements that cater to their specific needs.

    Taking any type of medicine or herbs without consulting or without getting it prescribed by the professional physician can certainly affect the situation and may even worsen it and may created further complications in the mere future.
