Herbal treatment for infertility in Nigeria is very important as so many people are affected. Infertility affects above 15 percent of all couples. It can be described as the inability to conceive after a long period of trying, which could be anywhere above 6 months. The cause of infertility can exist in either partner, in fact 40 percent of cases are male. Within the female partner, it is referred to as female Infertility.

The most common causes include ovulation problems, damage to the uterus, ovarian ducts or issues with the cervix. Age is also a strong contributor to infertility because as time passes, women come closer to menopause, and chances of fertilization slowly drop.
Ovulation problems can develop because of one or some of these:

  • A tumor or cyst
  • A hormonal imbalance
  • Eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia
  • Excess weight
  • Stress
  • Alcohol use
  • Drug use, including caffeine
  • Thyroid gland problems
  • Extremely brief menstrual cycles

Damage to the uterus or ovarian ducts can be caused by:

  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Polyps in the uterus
  • A previous infection, usually STD’s
  • Fibroids
  • Scar tissue or adhesions
  • A previous ectopic pregnancy
  • A birth defect

Abnormal cervical mucus can also cause infertility. Cervical mucus secretions that are too thick can trap the sperm and prevent them from reaching or penetrating the egg.

How Infertility is  Diagnosed?

Doctors may use one of the following:

  • A urine or blood test to check for infections or hormone problems, including thyroid function
  • Pelvic and breast exam
  • A sample of cervical mucus tissue to determine if ovulation is occurring
  • Abdominal laproscopy
  • Hysteroscopy, using a little telescope to look for uterine anomalies.
  • Ultrasound to look for problems with the uterus or ovaries

How Infertility is Treated?

Contemporary medicine usually employs one of these methods:
Taking hormones to solve a hormonal imbalance, endometriosis or a short menstrual cycle
Taking medications to stimulate ovulation
Antibiotics to remove an infection
Surgery to remove scar tissue or tumors

Herbal Treatment for Infertility

Herbs, used appropriately can be used to treat any type of infertility condition, enhancing the effects on gonadotropins on the system and preventing or curing infections of the reproductive system in both males and females.
