"Evening primrose oil and star flower oil are also often recommened for those having trouble concieving, as they helps to regulate the woman's hormonal cycle" I just found this for you...
* Vitex angus castus (chasteberry) : This is meant to help with hormal problems, especially luteal phase defects. click here for testamonial. Some sites say only take between menstruation and ovulation, others say its safe throughout cycle, just stop when you find out you are pregnant. Do not take with clomid or similar drugs.
* Evening Primrose oil : This is meant to help with the production of quality cervical fluid necessary for conception ( it helps the sperm to swim and stay alive longer). Some sources say take only from menstruation to ovulation as it can cause uterine contractions, others say its ok to take right through pregnancy! You need to take about 200omg a day. It is also a good source of omega 6. If you do take large amounts of EPO you need to ensure you also have enough omega 3 to balance it. The recomended ratio is 1:4 (omega 3 to omega 6). You can do this by taking fish oil supplements, or flax oil if you are vegetarian. (If you take fish oils make sure they come from a good source, as cheaper sources can be made from polluted fish).
* Ginseng : For mail fertility - said to boost immune system and help with male impotance and mail infertility.
* Flaxseed oil : For men and for women. Said to improve quality of man's sperm. Said to help regulate a woman's cycle. ITs also a good source of omega 3.
