According to the U.S. government website
4women.gov, about 12 percent of women will have problems conceiving
or carrying the pregnancy to term (2002). Of those 12 percent,
over time, about 60% of couples will become pregnant either
on their own or with treatment.
According to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine,
fertility issues affect about 6.1 million people. Female infertility
accounts for 1/3 of cases, male for 1/3 and combined 15%.
15% of cases are “unexplained”.
According to 4women.gov,
of the fertility issues pertaining to women, ovulation issues
account for most cases. Less common reasons for infertility
are uterine fibroids, blocked fallopian tubes (due to endometriosis
or ectopic pregnancy) or physical problems with the uterus.
Another important reason that women may be having trouble
conceiving is that they may not be producing enough cervical
fluid/mucus or the cervical fluid may be hostile – meaning
that it can prevent sperm from passing through the cervix.
There is no doubt that cervical fluid is very important to
conception as it assists the sperm up to the fallopian tubes
and determines the amount of time a sperm can survive –
however, it’s importance relating to infertility is
disputed by some fertility experts.
Factors that increase the risk that a woman will have
Not enough body fat from athletic training
Under or over weight
It can not be denied that there are so many subtle endocrine
and hormonal factors that are affected by a woman’s
overall health. These factors suggest that years of poor eating,
stress and too little knowledge of our fertility cycles have
left many women “sub-fertile” or with very sluggish systems.
Another factor attributing to problems ovulating is birth
control use. While it has been established that birth control
pills do not cause infertility -- it is not so uncommon in
practice to see a woman’s system go dormant for a period
of time after using birth control pills. Birth control pills
are hormones that prevent ovulation and also cause changes
in the cervical mucus and the lining of the uterus as well.
Since no one person is a statistic and will not know how her
body will respond, it is wise to plan a few months of a re-regulating
period to make sure that your system will rebound properly.
Age and Fertility
More and more women are delaying having their first child.
Surveys indicate most women who chose to wait want to make
sure they have a stable relationship before starting a family
– this is in light of the fact that 50% of marriages
end in divorce and life expectancy continues to rise. Further,
in one survey, a great majority of women (67%) feel it is
worse to have children when they are not emotionally or financially
ready than to risk the chance that they may not have children
(33%). According to 4women.gov,
20% of women in the U.S. will have their first child after
the age of 35. Age has the following affects on fertility.
The health of a woman’s eggs decline
Her ability to release and fertilize an egg declines
Risk of miscarrying increases
She is more likely to have health issues that affect her fertility
Three Important Factors to Conceive
These three factors assume that there are no physical obstructions
to getting pregnant.
Egg Quality The quality of an egg is dependent on
the quality of DNA and the environment in which the egg has
developed or matured.
Cervical Mucus or Fluid As mentioned, it is the cervical
fluid that assists the sperm to reach the fallopian tubes
in order to fertilize the egg. It also determines the amount
of time that sperm can survive by providing protection and
nutritional support. Healthy cervical fluid also helps neutralize
acidity in the vagina during a woman's fertile time. With
all these important functions, the chances of getting pregnant
without good cervical fluid are severely diminish.
The Timing of a Woman’s Cycle Keeping track of
ovulation time is very important as the window of opportunity
to fertilize an egg is only 12-24 hours after ovulation. Fresh
sperm can live up to 72 hours. Frozen sperm is only expected
to live between 12 and 24 hours. A lot of women have better
results conceiving if they plan to have sex (or a procedure)
right before they peak in their ovulation. If a woman waits
to peak on the ovulation kit, she is often too late. If she
uses an ovulation kit (or basal method) every day during that
critical time, she should be able to determine a trend moving
up towards ovulation and thus get a feeling for her own body’s
timing. This may take a couple of months but she should be
able to reasonably predict it – even with slight variances
month to month.
The Role of Oöna’s Fertility Health Boost
Oöna ’s Fertility Health Boost is designed to help
pull women out of that subfertile/sluggish state by providing
them with an extra nourishing boost to the body in a particular
way that addresses their endocrine system.*
A woman’s fertility and hormone production encompasses
more than the ovaries and the uterus. It is a complex system
in which most of the major organs play a role. It is in turn
monitored by our hypothalamus pituitary axis. (click

Oöna ’s Fertility Health Boost incorporates a three
part approach to make sure that a woman’s body has the
best chance to conceive.* Delivered in a daily packet, Oöna
’s Fertility Health Boost contains a restorative tonic,
important supplemental vitamins and an herbal hormone modulator.
We began by analyzing all of the pre-natal vitamins on the
market today – both over the counter and prescription.
Oöna’s Fertility Health Boost assumes that a woman
is taking a prenatal vitamin that addresses her needs for
important trace minerals such as zinc, iron, copper, chromium,
The corner stone of the product is an herbal
tonic that is both nourishing and restorative.* Tonics
by definition are gentle and non-toxic. They work overtime
with lasting results to gently correct any imbalances. The
tonic in Oöna’s Fertility Health Boost will not
only boost the immune system and address any inflammation
but will also nourish important organs such as the
adrenal glands, the spleen as well as the uterus and ovaries. (For

Second, we’ve included important reproductive health
vitamins and minerals that are usually not supplied
in optimal amounts in a prenatal vitamin. Specifically we’ve
included B-complex, calcium with magnesium and anti-oxidants
E and C. (For
more information about the importance of these vitamins, click
here and scroll down.)
Together with a balanced lifestyle and stress management,
Oöna ’s Fertility Health Boost can help make a
positive shift in preconception health.* It’s important
to note that it takes about five months for a follicle to
mature to be in the running as a dominant follicle and thus
an egg – it will take a couple of months to notice the
difference with Oöna ’s Fertility Health Boost.
It must be taken regularly.
