Thank you for your question on

The problem of infertility can be due to conditions in the female or the male partner. It is absolutely important to examine both partners who are trying to conceive. In women, the problem underlying infertility can be hormonal changes, a condition called polycystic ovaries, genetic dysfunctions and organic pathology in the genital tract which is unfavorable for conception or loss of conceived ovum.

Similarly, in men the problem may lie in the genital tract, pathology affecting the health of the sperm, seminal quality, seminal quantity, sperm motility apart from hormonal and genetic malfunctions.

There are several alternate and mainstream medicinal and non-medicinal supplements which are prescribed or bought over the counter for helping in getting pregnant, but it is mandatory to have an examination and required tests to rule out any underlying problem.

You might want to consider seeing an infertility specialist for the problem. Thank you.
