Abstract

Infertility is defined as the failure to achieve pregnancy during one year of frequent, unprotected intercourse. Infertility affects 10-20% of couples trying to achieve pregnancy in industrialized countries, and more than 186 million married women of reproductive age in developing countries. Many partners in western culture are utilizing western medicine but should we go back to our traditional roots? Herbal remedies have been used as early as 200 A.D. to rectify the balance of the body. Many studies have shown 50-90% success rates with the use of herbal remedies. It is a cost-effective option that can be used in conjunction with Western therapies.
