Yoga for fertility

“Don’t worry, everything will work out when it’s the right time. I am sure most of you must be tired of listening to this. For long you guys must be waiting for the “right time”, and it has not come yet.

Have you lost all hopes? I will say, DONT. “Hope” is the only solution to all your problems. If you have hope, you know great things will happen to you super soon. It is a sense of positivity, which is important, especially in tough times like these. Many couples go through the torture of not able to conceive and face a lot of problems but that doesn’t mean you give up.

Let me tell you a secret? Do you know why I am asking to not lose hope? It’s because I have the best solution to this issue. I am going to reveal it soon. But before that let’s have a look at why you are not able to conceive? It is important to be aware of the problem, rather than just finding a solution, if you know the cause, it will be easier to find a perfect cure.  

CAUSES OF INFERTILITY IN WOMEN 

Infertility in women is because of reasons such as: 

1. Ovulation disorder-  Ovulation disorder in simple terms means a problem in the ovary or if reproductive organs undergo drastic changes. This means you are not able to ovulate at all or the process of ovulation is rare in your case. 

  •  Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)- PCOS is the most common cause of female infertility. Ovulation disorder occurs since PCOS causes hormone imbalances. Symptoms of PCOS include abnormal hair growth on the face or body, acne, obesity, and insulin resistance. 
  • Hypothalamic dysfunction- Luteinizing hormone (LH) and Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) are the two hormones produced by the pituitary gland and are responsible for stimulating ovulation each month. If the production of these hormones is intermediated, the process of ovulation is affected as well. Some of the symptoms are sudden weight gain or weight loss or an overload of physical and emotional stress and the most common indication of this is inconsistent periods or no periods at all.

2.  Damage to fallopian tubes (tubal infertility) – If the fallopian tube is damaged it leads to infertility since the sperm is unable to get to the egg or the passage of fertilized egg is blocked to go into the uterus. The causes of the fallopian tube include: 

  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)– Sexually transmitted disease, chlamydia or gonorrhea leads to an infection in the fallopian tube or the uterus.

3. Endometriosis- A tissue that normally grows in the uterus implants, tends to grow somewhere else which leads to Endometriosis. The growth of extra tissue is removed through a surgical procedure, which could result in injury or damage. Therefore, the damage doesn’t let the egg or sperm intersect with each other. The implantation of the fertilized egg is also disrupted since Endometriosis can also affect the lining of the uterus.

Women are not the only ones who might have a problem conceiving. Sometimes, men also might be the reason for infertility. But, that’s a separate topic altogether.

Whoever might have the problem, a couple suffers a lot if they aren’t able to have a baby through the normal process, usually, women endure depression and anxiety as well.

I have heard many stories about, who struggle to have a baby, and it’s just heartbreaking what they go through.

Now, there are a few treatments to work on this situation, but it may only work at a certain percentage. As in, there are chances it will work, and there are chances it won’t work. So, what can you do to increase the chance of your percentage to make it work?

That’s the reason I am here to share the information. I hope it helps in some way and makes things a lot easier for you. Remember about the big secret reveal regarding the best solution, yes that solution is going to help you to increase that percentage, so here we go, finally. 

YOGA- THE BEST REMEDY FOR INFERTILITY 

 Yoga plays a role of positivity in tough times. It helps couples to relax their minds and body during this period. Like I mentioned before if a woman is not able to conceive she undergoes depression. Depression leads to nothing, but more and more problems. It is really important to be tension-free and relaxed to be able to bring another life. Women especially should take complete care of both their bodies and mind. Yoga is a great alternative to do so, Let’s see why. Shall we?

Does infertility mean I can never have children?

If women are under the age of 35 and are trying to get pregnant for over a year, it means infertility. In the case of women over 35, the timeline is 6 months. In some cases, women do get pregnant, but they are not able to stay pregnant and face many miscarriages. In conclusion, it does not mean it is not possible at all, you require the right treatment to deal with the particular issue.

Is the issue of infertility only in case of women?

No, the issue is not only in the case of women. Men and women may equally be responsible for infertility. Sometimes, either one of them has the problem, and sometimes both male and female bodies are just not ready to conceive. In rare cases, doctors are just not able to give an explanation as to who or why.

What are the risk factors of infertility? (Gender wise)

Risk factors in women

  1. Age ( It plays a major role especially in women)
  2. Overstress 
  3. Unhealthy diet 
  4. Sudden weight gain or weight loss 
  5. Health problems such as Polycystic ovarian syndrome and primary ovarian insufficiency 

Risk factors in men 

  1. Hormone or health problems or kidney disease
  2. Smoking cigarettes, overuse of drugs and alcohol 
  3. Medicines 
  4. Age 
Why is “age” a major concern in women? (For infertility)

As women age:

  • She might have health problems that may affect her chances to conceive 
  • Ovaries of women over 35 are not able to release enough ovaries 
  • If a woman is over age, either she has fewer legs left or the eggs are unhealthy.
Can yoga be harmful to try to conceive?

In the beginning, be sure to take simple yoga poses. Move forward slowly, be patient throughout the process. Once you practice it often it gets easier. Always consult your doctor, if you are new to the practice. Collect information and gain more and more knowledge. The more you learn the better you get.
