Ovulation & Conception

Ovulation is a part of the menstrual cycle that naturally happens every month in females. For the purpose of fertilization, each month ovary releases an ovum (reproductive cell) sending to the fallopian tube. If ovulation regularly occurs every month then it denotes that the female reproductive system is healthy. If a woman is not having regular ovulation it may lead to irregular periods. This can later become cause behind infertility. There can be various reasons behind improper ovulation like stress, bad dietary habits, improper lifestyle, and genetic causes. Regular consumption of this herb balances the estrogen levels and regulates the healthy ovulation and conception.
