My husband and I have been trying for about 18 months now and we still have no baby. I don't want to do IVF or anything like that. I'd like to stay natural if I can. Does anyone one know how you can increase your fertility or chances of conceiving?

Welcome, Bergitta. Check the Vitamin D subforum under Vitamins. I just posted a connection a few minutes ago. You might also browse the Pregnancy forum, not sure what you might find.

I got pregnant at age 44, and again at 46 and 47 (tho i did not carry any of these to term). I changed my diet and did acupuncture. The acupuncture was instrumental in 2 of the 3 pregnancies.

My recommendation would be the book, You Can Get Pregnant Over 40, Naturally (You Can Get Pregnant Over 40, Naturally" - Sandy Robertson) by Sandy Robertson. Even if you are 20, i think this book contains info that is good for everyone, especially anyone trying to conceive. She focuses a lot on the effects of diet and of exercise.

I think anyone trying to conceive should give this advice a try before moving on to allopathic (hum, nonsense) advice. Most doctors still do not admit the effect diet has on health.

Also, as mentioned at another post here, Vitamin D3 is instrumental. I think the 5,000 IU advised would be a minimum.

1. Avoid vaccines/flu shots. They have chemicals in them that probably affect fertility. More information at:

2. Gluten sensitivity is being found to be an undiagnosed problem in infertility.
If you have migraines you have a 80% of being gluten sensitive; more information on gluten and infertility:

3. BPA found in plastics and canned food is a hormone-disrupting chemical.

I hope you can find something here to help you. Blessings to you and your husband:).

A lot of studies link GMO to fertility. Here's just one example; I'm sure there are others on this forum, or do a Google search on "monsanto fertility" or "gmo fertility."

How to avoid GM foods? Again, browse the topics in our Genetically Modified forum. Short answer: NO processed foods. That includes mayo, salad dressings, basically anything in a jar, bag, box or bottle.
