Can evening primrose with starflower oil help you conceive?

i have heard it can - is this true? my hubby and i are ttc and we suffered a miscarriage in november and was wondering what else apart from healthy diet and plenty of sex can increase our chances

Can evening primrose with starflower oil help you conceive?
Evening primrose on it's own can help your CM(cervical mucus ) keep moist.

Read about preseed.It helps create a sperm friendly environment for sperm and can help it last longer.If a woman feels she's not producing enough CM it can make the sperm's swim to the womb harder and that's where preseed can help and it has quite a high sucess rate.

Multi-vitamins or geritol can help.Chasteberry tea

helps to balance hormones.

Selenium helps cell renewal and for men- helps protect sperm.

God Bless and plenty baby dust from one ttc to another!

Reply:Please keep in mind that this answer is for information purposes only, and is not intended to diagnose, treat or replace sound medical advice from your physician or health care provider.

This is only personal opinion and was written to cater to general audiences. Not responsible for any side effect of this advice, i.e. getting pregnant. This advice assumed that you have undergo medical check up and do not have any clinical problem, i.e. PCOS, block uterus, impotent, etc.

In order to ensure you get a good chance to get pregnant is to understand how it happen and then try to help the process to happen. Pregnancy happen when sperm join the egg, as such both must be present at the same time. Therefore it is good to ensure you ensure you and your husband have sex at the highest probability this happen.

1. Sperm is being generated continuously in male reproductive system. However, sperm and _*** is not the same thing, i.e. if you have sex daily, the sperm count in _*** might be lower. As such, you might want to hold off sex 2 - 3 days before trying. (No masturbating also.)

2. You need to do in 1 – 2 days before your ovulation. During most times of the month, the sperm are killed pretty fast. They do get some protection from the surrounding seminal fluid, but they are too weak to swim through thick, acidic vaginal mucus. Only once a month does the woman's body help the sperm out by making clear, stretchy mucus that is good for the swimmers! That is around ovulation, when the body wants the sperm to succeed.

3. Selecting baby sex: It was noted that sperm for male died slightly easier, compared to sperm for female. As such, some folks remedial may include stressing the sperm to determine the sex of the baby, i.e. washing vaginal with acidic material (i.e. vinegar, lemon) for female or douse with baking soda (or specifically devised alkaline solutions) before intimate relation to give boost to male sperm which swim faster. Increase the acidity slightly kills the weaker male sperm – so the theory goes (not too much or you end up killing all of it).

3.a. When trying to conceive a boy, it is suggested that orgasms during sex are a good thing as the body produces substances after orgasm that makes the vaginal environment more alkaline, which favors the "boy" sperm. The contractions which accompany an orgasm help move the sperm up and into the cervix, giving the "boy" sperm an extra chance at being available when your egg is available for fertilization.

3.b. Also suggested that if you are trying to conceive a boy, deep penetration from your partner, preferably with the "doggy style" position, will deposit the sperm closer to the cervix giving the more aggressive and quicker moving "boy" sperm a head start to fertilizating the egg first.

3.c. I have also read that wearing tight pants, going to spa can also caused testes temperature to be higher (female baby), loose pants/boxer is cooler. This happen because the sperm is being stored in testes. More info from

4. Illness can temporarily reduce sperm count, so if the father is sick you may want to delay your attempt until the following cycle.

5. Smoking, drug and alcohol use, and exposure to toxic chemicals, can all reduce sperm count.

6. Emotional stress is associated with lower sperm counts. You may want to check into relaxation techniques.

7. Regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight are lifestyle changes that can improve sperm count.

8. Lack of certain vitamins and minerals can lower sperm count. You may want to try a nutritional supplement for enhancing male fertility

9. If you're worried that you may have a low sperm count, you can use an at-home semen analysis kit to check your sperm concentration.

10. Any form of stress, not just heat, can affect sperm production and lower sperm count.

11. Diet: The father may have some caffeine just before intercourse.

The father can have a couple of cups of coffee (or other caffeinated drink) fifteen minutes to half an hour before intercourse.

Caffeine gives both types of sperm a boost, but the Y-sperm would get a little more of a boost.

12. In order to ensure that the eggs supply is available, you need to ensure that you are not stress.

13. You need to ensure that you are in ovulating phase. Ovulation occurs when a mature egg is released from the ovary, pushed down the fallopian tube, and is available to be fertilized. An egg lives 12-24 hours after leaving the ovary. Normally only one egg is released each time of ovulation. Ovulation can be affected by stress, illness or disruption of normal routines

14. Sperm can live 5-7 days after sex and it is possible to have sex before you ovulate and not during and still get pregnant.

The best of luck to you.
