If you are having trouble conceiving do not presume that it is the woman's problem, infertility can also be due to the male partner. If you suspect a male infertility problem and want to improve things naturally, there are several herbs that can be taken to improve the situation:
Ginseng: can be used to increase energy and vitality and improve the immune system thus improving health in general. It also specifically helps with male fertility by counter acting impotence, raising sexual desire, increasing testosterone levels and improving sperm count and sperm motility.
Pycnogenol: is a plant extract taken from the bark of a Maritime pine which is found growing on the southwest coast of France. It acts as an antioxidant containing a natural combination of organic acids, bioflavonoids and procyanidins. In clinical tests pycnogenol improved the quality of sperm by 38% and the function of sperm by 19% and should definitely be a part of any multi vitamin treatment being taken for male fertility improvement.
Maca: which is a root vegetable native to the high Andes of Bolivia and Peru works highly effectively to increase sperm count and motility as well as a libido booster.
Tribulus is a flowering plant and it is claimed to increase the body's natural testosterone levels improving male sexual performance. It can be used by both males and females and acts as a natural aphrodisiac and is much safer than some of the libido enhancers that are available.
Saw Palmetto: is a natural form of a steroid and helps build tissue and stimulate glands, toning and strengthening the male reproduction system. It improves male impotence, prostrate health and low libido.
Flaxseed Oil: is excellent for improving male fertility, it improves the health of the sperm and may also help improve male impotence.
Gingko Biloba: can grow to a tree but is kept as a shrub for producing leaves that are used in herbal preparations. Gingko Biloba is reported to improve circulation and this improved blood flow can improve erectile dysfunction and overall sexual health.
Milk thistle: acts as a detoxifier and thus improves your whole body health. Improving your general health will also mean improving your reproductive health which leads to healthier sperm, more of them and healthier sperm motility.
Herbs must be taken at the prescribed amount, do not think that by taking twice as much than is advised that you will be improving your sexual health twice as quickly - some herbs taken in large doses are poisonous. Combine your herbs with an improvement in your diet in general - plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, quality protein, loads of water and cut down on the sugar. If you are a smoker - quit now! And if you are a drinker (of alcohol) take steps to cut it down to a minimum if you cannot give it up altogether. Add a multi vitamin and mineral targeted for male infertility and you will be off to a great start. Expect to see an improvement in three to six months.
