Yoga Positions For Fertility

With more and more women delaying having children until later in life, there are a growing number of couples having difficulties conceiving. From their mid thirties onwards, women’s chances of getting pregnant drop dramatically and many couples are turning to medical intervention to assist them in having a baby.

Trying to conceive can be a very stressful and emotional experience, particularly when it involves undergoing fertility treatments or IVF. Many doctors are now recommending women use yoga in conjunction with their medical treatment, both to assist them in de-stressing and to enhance their possibilities of becoming pregnant.

A Harvard based study found that women who were trying for a baby were three times more likely to conceive if they took fertility focused yoga courses than those who did not. But what is it about yoga that prepares the body so well for conception and pregnancy?

As we have already mentioned, stress can be a major problems when a couple are having trouble conceiving. Stress can interfere with a woman’s menstrual cycle and delay ovulation, as well as reducing sperm production in men. The emotional release of yoga can ease stress and anxiety, enhancing a couples chances of conceiving.

This is most effective if both the male and female participate, and a couple might consider partner yoga in this situation. In addition to deepening and strengthening their relationship, partner yoga can teach them how to cope together with the strain of trying for a baby.

There are numerous other ways that a fertility focused yoga course can help a woman to conceive. In yoga the body is seen as an energy system, with a number of different areas or chakras. Certain yoga positions focus on increasing the energy flow in the second chakra, known as the seat of creation, which is where the reproductive organs can be found.

There are many yoga positions that increase energy in the second chakra. Certain restorative poses are perfect to prepare the body for conception. They can help to soften the abdominal region and remove any tension from the area of the ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus. Reclining poses are used to elongate the abdominal region, allowing more blood flow to the reproductive organs.

There are also specific yoga positions that a woman can use after sex to increase her chances of conception. One of the most popular is a legs up the wall pose, known as Viprarita Kirani. This ensures that the sperm remain in the optimum position for fertilization for as long as possible.

A final way that yoga can assist conception is by correcting irregular hormone levels that may be limiting fertility. Certain yoga positions can improve glandular function, which helps to normalize hormone levels.

Although nobody would claim that yoga alone can make you pregnant, following a course of fertility focused yoga can significantly reduce the stress and emotion of trying to conceive. Used in conjunction with medical treatment, it can prepare your body and mind for pregnancy and greatly increase your chances of creating that longed for baby.

  2. @indug:

    Sorry to hear about your problem. Sometimes people have structural problems and no amount of remedies (natural or unnatural) can correct them and allow them to become pregnant.

    That said, natural remedies are good for your overall health so they do not hurt to try. Browse through our site and you will find tons of suggestions and articles on how to improve your fertility naturally.

      @deepa:

      I am sorry you are having a difficult time conceiving. Most of the articles on our site recommend a holistic, natural approach to boosting fertility including chiropractic, yoga, acupuncture, massage, as well as optimal nutrition, elimination of sugars and toxins and relaxation techniques. Read through some of the articles on our site and google “natural fertility”. Good luck!

  8. I am part of a tubal reversal group and someone mentioned getting herbal tampons. I ordered them recently. They help with any virus and relax your tubes from spasm. When your tubes spasm it makes it almost impossible for the sperm and egg do its job. I am going to try this and see if it helps out. also check out the environment your sending the sperm to make sure not to acidic. and also have to relax and have fun.
