Hormonal Imbalance – Causes, Signs and Symptoms, How It Affects Your Fertility : Swissgarde Herbal Remedy For Hormonal Imbalance

HORMONAL BALANCE

Hormonal balance is necessary to get pregnant, carry to term and have a healthy baby.

What exactly are hormones?

Hormones are cell messengers coordinated by the endocrine system. Without proper endocrine function, our bodies cannot maintain proper hormonal balance.

Our cells are genetically programmed to only receive and respond to messages from certain hormones. Each cell in the body contains hormone receptor sites.

Once a hormone fits into a cell’s receptor, it gives the cell instructions. This is similar to a key fitting in a lock. Hormones control our bodily processes.

 Hormone Balance or levels can be influenced by the following:

1. Stress
2. Fluid changes in the body, 3. Vitamin and mineral levels
4. Infection
5. Exposure to environmental toxins.
6. Amount of body fat we have

Each endocrine gland plays a specific role in the ability of our body to maintain proper function. Each endocrine gland also communicates with the other in an amazing design. If one of the endocrine glands is not functioning properly, it may cause a broken link in communication with other endocrine glands or actions of the body, which may greatly impair fertility.

Because the endocrine glands secrete hormones, and the hormones are messengers for actions within the body, if the gland is not functioning properly, hormonal imbalance occurs and the ability to reproduce may be impaired.

HORMONES IMPORTANT FOR REPRODUCTIVE FUNCTION

There are key hormones that directly affect fertility health in both men and women.

IMPORTANT HORMONES IN WOMEN OF CHILDBEARING AGE:

For more information call Felix Joshua +2347038574473, 08074256315
1. ESTROGEN or Estradiol

is produced primarily by the follicles and corpus luteum (remnant egg sac) in the ovaries. This estrogen is the most potent and abundant. Estrogen is essential for healthy bone formation, healthy gene expression, maintaining healthy cholesterol levels, and formation of secondary sexual characteristics (pubic hair, breasts, etc). Estradiol is vital for a healthy menstrual cycle.

2. PROGESTERONE

Progesterone is needed for a healthy libido, bone formation, and proper blood clotting. Progesterone is produced by the corpus luteum in the ovaries and by the adrenal glands.

 Progesterone is one of the main hormones in helping to regulate the menstrual cycle. It works to balance the effects of estrogen. Progesterone also signals the release of insulin, playing a role in a person’s susceptibility for diabetes or insulin resistant PCOS.

 Adequate levels of progesterone are vital for proper fallopian tube function. Almost all of your other hormones are made from progesterone.

Progesterone is vital for conception and maintaining pregnancy. One of the main actions of progesterone is to help support a developing embryo. During pregnancy, the placenta produces progesterone to help sustain the developing baby

3. LUTEINIZING HORMONE (LH)

This hormone is produced in the anterior pituitary gland. LH surge is responsible for triggering ovulation and development of the corpus luteum. LH works synergistically with FSH. It stimulates specific cells to produce testosterone.

4. FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE (FSH)

This hormone is also released and synthesized by the anterior pituitary gland. It regulates the body’s development, growth, and maturation. It also regulates reproductive processes. FSH works alongside with LH.

FSH signals some of the follicles in the ovary to begin maturing in preparation for ovulation.

5. CORTISOL

Cortisol is produced by the adrenal glands, but it is controlled by the hypothalamus. Its primary function is to increase blood sugar, aid in fat, protein and carbohydrate metabolism and suppress the immune system. Cortisol is released in response to stress.

6. ANDROGENS

DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone): DHEA is a precursor to testosterone and estrogens. This means that those hormones are made from it. DHEA is necessary for protein building and repair. It is made by the adrenal glands. DHEA levels decline dramatically as we age.

7. TESTOSTERONE

Testosterone in women is in much lower amounts than in men. It helps to support a healthy sex drive and build bones.

 *HIGH PROLACTIN LEVELS*
(hyperprolactinemia)

*Symptoms of Hyperprolactinemia*

*In females, hyperprolactinemia or prolactinoma can cause:*

⏩ Irregular menstrual periods (oligomenorrhea) or no menstrual periods (amenorrhea)
⏩ Milky discharge from the breasts (galactorrhea) when not pregnant or breastfeeding
⏩ Painful intercourse due to vaginal dryness
⏩ Acne
⏩ Excessive body and facial hair growth (hirsutism)

*LOW PROGESTERONE LEVELS*

Progesterone is especially important in your childbearing years. If you don’t have enough progesterone, you may have trouble getting or staying pregnant. Each month, after one of your ovaries, releases an egg, your progesterone levels should rise. Progesterone helps the uterus thicken in anticipation of receiving a fertilized egg. If it’s not thick enough, implantation doesn’t occur.

*Symptoms of low progesterone in women who aren’t pregnant include:*

⏩ Headaches or migraines
⏩ Mood changes, including anxiety or depression
⏩ Low sex drive
⏩ Hot flashes
⏩ Irregularity in your menstrual cycle
⏩ Abnormal uterine bleeding.
⏩ Irregular or absent periods may indicate poorly functioning ovaries and low progesterone.

Without progesterone to complement it, estrogen may become the dominant hormone. This may lead to a variety of symptoms, including:

⏩ Weight gain
⏩ Decreased sex drive, mood swings, and depression
⏩ PMS, irregular menstrual cycle, heavy bleeding
⏩ Breast tenderness, fibrocystic breasts
⏩ Fibroids, endometriosis
⏩ Gallbladder problems
⏩ Thyroid dysfunction

For more information call Felix Joshua +2347038574473, 08074256315

*Symptoms of low progesterone in women who are pregnant may include:*

⏩ Spotting and abdominal pain.
⏩ Constant breast tenderness
⏩ Unrelenting fatigue
⏩ Frequent low blood sugar
⏩ Vaginal dryness
⏩ Toxemia or ectopic pregnancy.
⏩ Recurrent Miscarriage
⏩ Fetal death (stillbirths)

 *Recurrent Miscarriages caused by low progesterone report such as above could cause psychological trauma for a woman especially if she is TTC and in the childbearing age*

 *HIGH FSH LEVELS*

*Symptoms of High FSH*

In women presenting with high FSH levels manifestations include:

⏩ Ovarian hyperstimulation ⏩ Polycystic Ovaries or multiple ovarian cysts
⏩ Oligomenorrhea or Amenorrhea.
⏩ Galactorrhea may be present in the setting of high prolactin levels.

⏩ Primary or secondary infertility.

In women with ovarian failure, other symptoms may include:

⏩ Hot flashes sleep disturbance, mood swings, depression
⏩ Vaginal dryness and dyspareunia
⏩ Urinary incontinence
⏩ Urinary tract infections.

 *HIGH  ESTROGEN LEVELS*

Estrogen may become the dominant hormone without progesterone to complement it. This may lead to a variety of symptoms.

*Symptoms of high estrogen (estrogen dominance)*

⏩ Weight gain
⏩ Decreased sex drive, mood swings, and depression
⏩ PMS, irregular menstrual cycle, heavy bleeding
⏩ Breast tenderness, fibrocystic breasts
⏩ Fibroids, Endometriosis
⏩ Gallbladder problems
⏩ Thyroid dysfunction

> Foods high in fats has been shown to cause obesity, resistance to insulin, ovulatory disorder,
estrogen dominance (Hormonal imbalance) which leads to Uterine Fibroids & infertility.
: High FSH ruins your eggs, make them low quality and diminishes your egg reserve known as “DOR”- Diminished ovarian reserve.

LET ME JUST ADD THIS SO WE CAN KNOW HOW TO GO ABOUT FERTILITY CASES AND QUESTIONS TO ASK, TEST. RESULTS TO CHECK.

* FACTORS AFFECTING FEMALE INFERTILITY*

There are several factors that may impact on a woman’s fertility. Some of these factors include:

1. Thyroid
2. Hormones
3. Ovarian factors (PCOS, Ovarian Cysts, Early Menopause)
4. Diseases (Diabetes, Genetic conditions)
5. Tubal or Peritoneal Factors (Endometriosis, Implantation failure)
6. Pelvic Inflammatory Diseases
7. Benign Fibroids
8. Medications
9. Scar tissue from previous surgery
10. A weak cervix
11. Anovulation
12. Ovulating during menstruation
13. Absentee Husband
14. Low or Nil Sperm Count
15. Menopause
16. Hysterectomy (surgical removal of the womb)
17. Age
18. Poor diet
19. Stress
20. Rhesus factor
21. Being overweight or underweight

CERVICAL MUCUS
Let’s start with cervical mucus
Did you know that cervical mucus is important for fertility?  most women think it just for the ease of penetration for intercourse, I’m wet ” or “my body is moved,,” but it’s not only for that. Cervical mucous a woman produces actually helps in conception efforts. Here’s how…
The cervix produces different types of mucous depending on where a woman is at in her menstrual cycle. Just after menstruation, the cervix produces a fluid that is thick and acidic which is designed to prevent sperm from entering the vagina. This is known as infertile mucus.
Fertile cervical mucus (CM), also known as cervical fluid (CF) is produced by your cervix as ovulation approaches. Cervical mucus is necessary for allowing the sperm to swim freely through the cervix.
In order to support healthy cervical mucous production, we must consider herbs that supply essential fatty acids, especially omega-6. Herbs that are demulcent and bitter are supportive of mucous membrane function. We must also be sure to stay hydrated When talking of hydration,  water green tea, rooibos tea are good. Carbonated drinks are a No! No!! 
Herbs that increase circulation to the genitals may also be helpful.
Like
Borage seed oil (Borago officinalis): High in omega-6 essential fatty acids, Borage seed oil works to increase cervical mucus and balance hormones.

Dandelion leaf and root (Taraxacum officinale): This bitter herb is stimulating to the mucous membranes, which causes them to secrete fluids. Dandelion is a very nutritive herb, helping to support liver health for hormonal balance.
Evening Primrose Oil, cold pressed seed (Oenothera biennis): This oil is high in omega-6 essential fatty acids. It works to increase cervical mucus and balance hormones. 
CERVICAL MUCOUS CONT
For women that have low or no cervical fluid, it is harder for the sperm to reach the vagina and beyond for conception. In some cases, there may not be a friendly environment for the sperm to sustain themselves. A woman may have 
developed anti-sperm antibodies,  (ASA) 
have some type of infection (yeast or bacterial infection, STD)
, or may eat a diet high in acidic foods which may cause Cervical Hostility.
CAUSES OF LOW CERVICAL MUCUS
Not enough water intake each day
.Poor circulation to the reproductive organs; sedentary lifestyle.
Hormonal imbalance may cause changes to the entire menstrual cycle, which may inhibit production of fertile cervical mucus.
 Both low progesterone and estrogen levels may cause low cervical mucous production.
Fertility medications containing hormones can alter fertile cervical mucous production.
Cervical fibroid (very rare) also can be a factor
NATURAL OPTIONS FOR INCREASING CERVICAL MUCUS
▶Drink a lot of water throughout the day. This may be all you need, drink more water. Cervical mucus is made up of 90% water so drink up to 8 glasses a day
▶Be sure you are getting enough essential fatty acids each day in your diet. If you cannot get these through the foods you are eating, you may want to consider taking a complete omega supplement which contains omega 3, 6 and 9.(Omega plus)
▶Supplementation of L-Arginine helps to promote cervical mucous by supporting the production of nitric oxide (NO). Nitric oxide dilates blood vessels and helps to increase blood flow to the uterus, ovaries, and genitals. (SH&N)
▶Many herbs can support the health of our mucous membranes, including how they function. Many of those same herbs also support hormonal balance, which is necessary for appropriate cervical fluid changes.
Asparagus, St Johns Wort, Dandelion, Borage oils Spirulina, wheat germ ( 40 women, Omega, Buchu, royal jelly and immune booster)
If at all you use a lubricant to aid sex to avoid perfumed lubricants and opt for a natural brand
Remember the. production of healthy cervical mucous is vital for conception, as it supports the sperm in reaching the ova.

SLEEP DEPRIVATION AND INFERTILITY
When talking to couples don’t be afraid to ask about their sleep patterns
You spend the night thinking about TTC, you toss and turn and by morning you are drained…..you are sleep deprived. Recent research is demonstrating a rather clear connection between sleep deprivation and infertility. It looks like one of the best things you can do for your mental, emotional and physical well-being  – including your fertility prospects – is to get a good night’s sleep.
*Sleep deprivation affect FSH levels*  Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) controls the menstrual cycle and (ideally) is at its highest levels right before a woman ovulates. Studies that track women’s sleeping habits have drawn a correlation between the two. Women who average a healthy amount of sleep each night (about 7 – 9 hours) had FSH levels as much as 20% higher than women who averaged six or fewer hours per night. This relationship exists regardless of the women’s ages or weight
Don’t let your affinity for late night TV  affect  your fertility

 A fact that is not well known is *light pollution can affect egg viability* When you sleep your body produces melatonin – a hormone that regulates sleeping and waking cycles. Did you know that melatonin is also responsible for protecting eggs when they are close to ovulation, guarding against free-radicals and other degenerative entities? If you are someone who sleeps with lights on, who checks their cell phone every time it buzzes, or has the TV on non-stop, your body’s melatonin cycles get all screwed up. This, in turn, can prevent your egg from getting the protection they need, resulting in damaged eggs that are then rejected by the body or can wind up being the cause of a miscarriage.

Please let’s stop worrying and make the necessary changes to establish a healthy sleep pattern and get your circadian – and hormonal – rhythm back on track.
Infertility: Cervical Mucous, Sleep Deprivation, Sperm Count and Treatment  PART 2
SPERM COUNT AND HEALTH
When it comes to infertility people assume its the woman who is to blame for problems or delays in conceiving a baby.
The fact is about half of all infertility obstacles are contributed by men. 
Secondly, it is believed that sperm health is just about numbers – or sperm count. And while a healthy sperm count is a vital dimension of male fertility, there are clearly many other physiological factors like motility and morphology (called sperm parameters) that are equally important
*Sperm count*is the number (or concentration) of sperm that should be present/measurable in a given sample. The W H O provides that the benchmark for a “normal” count is *20 million sperm per milliliter* – given a total semen volume of 2 ml Sperm count is considered lower than normal if you have fewer than 15 million sperm per milliliter of semen

While sperm count is clearly vital, numbers are not everything. Sperm must be able

to swim in a sustained, forward manner. 
They must be normally shaped. 
And they must exhibit metabolic attributes that promote longevity, speed, or endurance.
A low sperm count is a called oligospermia A complete absence of sperm is called azoospermia
DIAGNOSIS OF LOW SPERM COUNT & QUALITY
Men have very few tests but should endeavor to do at least 
🔸Sperm analysis (SFA) 
🔸Culture test
🔸Hormonal assay
🔸Prostate-specific antigen (PSA)
🔸Blood work to test for autoimmune disorder or anti-sperm antibody. 
These tests can give an insight into how to get started with your fertility treatment.
Factors that can cause any of the sperm parameters  to be out of synch can be medical, environmental or lifestyle choices
MEDICAL
Low sperm count can be caused by a number of health issues and medical treatments. Some of these include:

Varicocele.  is a swelling of the veins that drain the testicle. 
Infections (STI’s ) can interfere with sperm production/ health
Ejaculation problems.
 Retrograde ejaculation
Certain medications might result in ejaculatory problems.  (Blood pressure medicine)
Antibodies that attack sperm. (ASA)Anti-sperm antibodies
.Tumors. Cancers and nonmalignant tumors 
Surgery, radiation or chemotherapy 
Undescended testicles. 
Hormone imbalances.
Defects of tubules that transport sperm.  
Chromosome defects  Inherited disorders such as Klinefelter’ disorder or cystic fibrosis
Celiac disease. A digestive disorder caused by sensitivity to gluten.
ENVIRONMENTAL
 Extended exposure to industrial chemicals
Heavy metal exposure. 
Radiation or X-rays exposure
Overheating the testicles. Elevated temperatures impair sperm production and function. Please note
 sitting for long periods,
 wearing tight clothing 
or working on a laptop computer for long stretches of time can increase the temperature 
LIFESTYLE
Drug use. Anabolic steroids  cause the testicles to shrink and sperm production reduces
Alcohol use. Drinking alcohol can lower testosterone levels and cause decrease sperm
Occupation. Certain occupations might be linked with infertility, e.g  welding  truck driving, Okada riders, and many desk jobs
Tobacco smoking. 
Emotional stress.  
Weight. Obesity can impair fertility in several ways.
. A sperm defect is present when sperm is irregularly shaped, have poor motility or low sperm count. It takes more than looking at sperm under the microscope to assess the ability of the sperm to fertilize the female’s eggs.
When a semen analysis is done, normal semen levels have been defined as follows:
Volume: 1ml to 5ml or more
Concentration: 20 million/ml or more
Motility: 50% or more
Morphology: 30% or more normal shapes (WHO criteria) 
Clumping: minimal
Presence of white or red blood cells: minimal
No hyperviscosity (Thickening of seminal fluid)
Results outside of these parameters probability that there is a case of male factor infertility, but it does not provide any guarantees. 
Very frequent intercourse can lead to the demand exceeding the supply. There are quite a number of infertile men whose sex drive is such that they must ejaculate 2-3 times a day thus giving them a lower sperm count.
The following herbs have been shown to increase not only sperm count but the overall health, motility, and morphology of sperm.
 Ginseng root (Panax quinquefolius): Ginseng may support a healthy sex drive, help with erectile dysfunction and enhance sexual performance in men. It strengthens the HPA (hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal) axis, aiding hormonal balance, stress management, and immune function. 
Bee Propolis: Bee propolis(royal jelly) has been shown to be extremely anti-inflammatory and promotes proper hormonal balance in males and female. 
 It not only  increases libido
• Support egg and sperm health
• Diminish and reduce the signs of aging
• it reduces inflammation caused by illness or injury
• and naturally boosts the bodies immune system
. Anti-sperm antibodies can be present in a woman as an allergic reaction to sperm, thus triggering immune response to attack the sperm. These anti-sperm antibodies can also be present in men as well, where their bodies attack their own sperm Bee propolis prevents destruction by ASA 
Horny goat weed (Epimedium grandiflorum): An aphrodisiac, Epimedium increases sexual desire and performance. The active ingredient Icariin has been shown to increase nitric oxide; increasing circulation to the extremities. It has also been shown useful in aiding a sustained erection.
Ginkgo leaves (Ginkgo biloba): Ginkgo is considered the #1 remedy for erectile dysfunction. It increases circulation and is high in antioxidants.
Maca root (Lepidium Meyenii): Men who use maca have been seen to have an increased libido and healthy sperm. Additionally, increased seminal volume, sperm count per ejaculate, and sperm motility have been observed. 
Saw Palmetto  (Serenoa repens): Saw Palmetto is traditionally used for improving prostate health, impotence, testicular atrophy and improved sex drive in men.
Men should take care of their semen and sperm  the trace element ZINC  is essential and will be looked at
Before that
 Rev up, Royal jelly, memo-Vite and 40 plus for men are essential to sperm health.
Double power for libidos
Immune booster for boosting the immune system to provide healthy sperm
Wow that a lot…I think the last part on Zinc and its benefits can be kept for another day …..
I hope you have picked up something tonight

SELF HELP TIPS FOR EASY   CONCEPTION
Fertility doesn’t always come easily, or naturally. The more you can do to optimize your lifestyle around these fertility tips, the better. The good news is that the majority of these tips are about more than just conception – they are about, taking note of your physical health, ensuring adequate diet and getting enough exercise and rest.
So what can you do?
These  Tips can help to boost your odds so you can conceive sooner, rather than later.
✳Get to know your body it’s very important that you do so. Look for any signs, or symptoms of bigger problems such as, infection, endometriosis, PCOS or other conditions linked to infertility, or that can make it more difficult for you to conceive. The sooner you receive treatment, the better.
✳Stay away from carbonated drinks, soda, excessive fruit juice, alcohol, and the likes. Watching ones weight and ensuring stress levels are low is essential
✳Don’t wait for ovulation. Don’t make the mistake of waiting until ovulating to have sex the viable window for conception is quite small – (only about 24 hours). Perhaps this is the reason sperm can live for up to 5 days –  waiting for their target to arrive. Have sex prior to ovulation to get as many sperms as possible past the cervix.
✳Avoid cigarette smoke and toxins in all their forms. It’s not enough to just quit smoking, you need to remove yourself out of the path of cigarette smoke totally. Studies show a direct link between second and third-hand smoke and infertility, as well as increased risk of miscarriages and infant health issues.
✳-Beware of toxins Many of the chemicals used pesticides have been linked to infertility issues for both men and women. Some of them are endocrine-disruptors, which means they alter the way our bodies would normally produce and release hormones, a significant number of which 
seem to affect reproductive hormones.
✴Drink lots of water and start your journey with fertility cleanse. Get rid of toxins, oxidants and  chemical consumption
✳Cultivate healthy sleep habits. Not only will you need it once your little bundle of joy has arrived, but healthy sleep habits have also correlated successful conception. It turns out that both too little and too much sleep can have a direct result on fertility
.✳Live a healthy lifestyle. From diet to weight, your health is a key factor when it comes to fertility. Diet, obesity, chemical intake, exercise, etc. have all been linked to both fertility, as well as healthy pregnancy and birth outcomes. 
Set your self in order, correcting these little things will help the big things overall
Fertility blessings to you  and your clients all
Malachi Okafor:
Honestly you a bravo ma.
However ma, when you were dealing with cervical mucus, you talked about the inability of the cervix to produce enough mucus. Could that be the reason for virginal dryness
Are you saying improving the health of cervix can solve the problem of virginal dryness? @healthwise247
Healthwise247:
Vaginal dryness comes from secretions from glands within the vagina, cervical mucus is essential for conception.Though interrelated they are different
That being said you can place your client who suffers from. vaginal dryness on Rev up
A lesson to men does not be in a hurry to penetrate.especially f you are TTC. Ensure your partner is ready. If not use lubrication

Anovulation – A Major Culprit In Infertility Cases – Swissgarde Nutritional and Herbal Treatment For Anovulation

In approximately 30 percent of infertility patients, their problem is demonstrated by anovulation. What does it mean to have an anovulatory cycle, and how can you get your body back on track when anovulation is to blame for your inability to conceive? 
WHAT IS ANOVULATION?
The average monthly menstrual cycle for women is 28 days. This can vary, depending on what is “normal” for each individual woman, but in general – you should be experiencing 4 phases each month. Those phases include:
The Menstrual Phase: The duration of your period, starting with day one of bleeding.
The Follicular Phase: When the lining of your uterus begins building up and follicles start maturing in preparation for ovulation.
The Ovulatory Phase: When a mature egg is released from your ovary.
The Luteal Phase: The days following ovulation when your body prepares for fertilization and implantation, or the start of a new cycle.

 If you have issues with ovulation and infertility, don’t fail to give us a call Swissgarde Independent Distributor Felix Joshua now +2347038574473 08074256315
DISRUPTION OF OVULATORY PHASE 
Anovulatory cycles occur when that ovulatory phase, for whatever reason, fails to take place. The series of hormones necessary to produce ovulation is disrupted at some point along the line, and there is no mature egg ready for release when the time comes. Obviously, when there is no egg being released, pregnancy cannot occur for that month. Often when anovulation happens, the other phases are disrupted as well and no period will take place. This is not always the case, however. Sometimes the other phases may still continue forward, making it possible to have a monthly period even when ovulation has failed to happen. Being on the birth control pill is a perfect example of this, where the pill blocks ovulation but allows the other phases to continue.
All women may experience the occasional rare month of anovulation. Periods of extreme stress, for instance, can throw the body out of whack and make it so that a month or two goes by before things return to normal. For some women, though, anovulation becomes the norm – making it nearly impossible to conceive until the body gets back on track.
WHAT CAUSES ANOVULATION? 
There are several possible causes for anovulation, and seeing a doctor may be the only way to track down the reasons why you are experiencing non-ovulatory cycles. Breastfeeding can often be to blame, as can both rapid weight gain and loss. Excessive stress can disrupt your hormone levels enough to prevent ovulation, and coming off the pill may also delay normal cycles for a few months in some cases. Women with eating disorder, pituitary or thyroid problems, and various infections might experience bouts of anovulation, and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can routinely be to blame as well.

How Can I Tell if I Ovulate? 
Begin Charting: By taking and tracking your basal body temperature at the same time every morning, you can begin to recognize patterns which may indicate whether or not you are ovulating. Typically your temperature will rise after ovulation has occurred, usually by half a degree or more.
Get to Know Your Body: Your body gives off a few clues as it prepares for ovulation, with your cervical mucus becoming more hospitable for traveling sperm and the position of your cervix changing as well. If you pay attention to these signs over the course of a few months, you may begin to recognize the indications of ovulation. Around your most fertile days, for instance, your cervical mucus should take on an egg white consistency and your cervix will feel high, soft, and more open than normal.
Ovulation Predictor Kits: Available in most stores next to the pregnancy tests, ovulation predictor kits can help you to pinpoint ovulation one way or another.
Note that: 
None of these options are an exact science, particularly if you are not currently ovulating. Charting and monitoring your body may prove inconclusive if that is the case, and ovulation predictor kits can sometimes provide inaccurate results – particularly for women with PCOS for some reason. If after a few months of monitoring, you still aren’t sure whether or not you have been ovulating; visit your doctor to schedule a series of blood tests throughout your cycle in order to find out once and for all.
WAYS TO ENCOURAGE OVULATION
Change Up Your Diet: Embrace the wonders of an organic, whole-foods diet, avoiding overly processed, fried or sugary foods whenever possible. Now would also be the time to give up smoking and limit alcohol and caffeine use as well.
Get Moving: Regular exercise is a great way to recalibrate your body and get it back to optimal functioning. Not only will thirty minutes a day of moderate exercise help you to maintain healthy body weight, but it will also naturally relieve stress and work to keep your blood sugar balanced – all necessary components of normal ovulatory cycles.
Avoid Toxins: They are everywhere in our environment, and sometimes it is simply impossible to live clean all the time, but start making changes now wherever you can. Limit the plastics you use in your house and never put plastic in the microwave. Check the beauty products you use and try to choose options that are paraben free. Opt for natural cleaners over those heavy in chemicals, and try to stay away from pesticide use and heavily polluted areas.
Consider Herbs: There are several herbs that have been shown to help promote regular ovulation. We shall now talk about some of those herbs that boost ovulation. 
Saw Palmetto :
If you are having problems ovulating due to PCOS, Saw Palmetto can help stimulate suppressed ovulation.
Ginseng:  Ginseng can help stimulate the ovaries and help them produce more estrogen. It helps balance the reproductive hormones.
Maca:  It supports the health of the Endocrine System by providing it with nourishment ( vitamins, minerals, and Phytonutrients).  Thus helping in hormonal balancing and supporting the entire menstrual cycle. 
The good news is that these herbs are found in the fertility pack from Swissgarde that has helped many achieve their dreams of becoming a mother.

Sperm Count Boosting – Restoring Your Dignity With Products That are Close To Nature

LET’S BOOST THE NUMBERS.

Inadequate sperm production and quality are one of the most common reasons for male infertility as it decreases the odds of one of the sperms fertilizing the egg for conception.
According to the World Health Organization, the normal concentration of sperm is at least 20 million per ml of semen. Fewer than 15 million sperm per ml is considered a low sperm count, also called oligozoospermia. Conception problems are associated with fewer than 40 million moving sperm in the ejaculate.

GETTING TESTED
If you have been trying to get pregnant for more than a year, make sure that both of you go and get infertility testing.
The results of a good test would be a sperm count of 20 million or more sperm with healthy motility and morphology. Suboptimal levels are less than 20 million sperm. If you find that your sperm levels are low or are having issues with mobility, motility or morphology. You need solutions we will proffer.

CAUSES OF LOW SPERM COUNT

Infection.
Some infections can interfere with sperm production or sperm health or can cause scarring that blocks the passage of sperm. These include inflammation of the epididymis (epididymitis) or testicles (orchitis) and some sexually transmitted infections, including gonorrhea or HIV. Although some infections can result in permanent testicular damage, most often sperm can still be retrieved.

The good news is that many of these essentials for boosting sperm are contained in the famous “Swissgarde Sperm boosting pack”. Contact Swissgarde Distributor – Felix Joshua +2347038574473, 08074256315 for information on how to get yours.

Ejaculation problems.
Retrograde ejaculation occurs when semen enters the bladder during orgasm instead of emerging out of the tip of the penis. Various health conditions can cause retrograde or lack of ejaculation, including diabetes, spinal injuries, and surgery of the bladder, prostate or urethra.
Certain medications also might result in ejaculatory problems, such as blood pressure medications known as alpha blockers. Some ejaculatory problems can be reversed, while others are permanent. In most cases of permanent ejaculation problems, sperm can still be retrieved directly from the testicles.
•  Antibodies that attack sperm: Anti-sperm antibodies are immune system cells that mistakenly identify sperm as harmful invaders and attempt to destroy them.
•  Tumors: Cancers and nonmalignant tumors can affect the male reproductive organs directly, through the glands that release hormones related to reproduction, such as the pituitary gland, or through unknown causes. Surgery, radiation or chemotherapy to treat tumors can also affect male fertility.
•  Undescended testicles: During fetal development, one or both testicles sometimes fail to descend from the abdomen into the sac that normally contains the testicles (scrotum). Decreased fertility is more likely in men with this condition.
•  Hormone imbalances: The hypothalamus, pituitary, and testicles produce hormones that are necessary to create sperm. Alterations in these hormones, as well as from other systems such as the thyroid and adrenal gland, may impair sperm production.
•  Defects of tubules that transport sperm: Many different tubes carry sperm. They can be blocked due to various causes, including inadvertent injury from surgery, prior infections, trauma or abnormal development, such as with cystic fibrosis or similar inherited conditions.
Blockage can occur at any level, including within the testicle, in the tubes that drain the testicle, in the epididymis, in the vas deferens, near the ejaculatory ducts or in the urethra.
•  Chromosome defects: Inherited disorders such as Klinefelter’s syndrome — in which a male is born with two X chromosomes and one Y chromosome instead of one X and one Y — cause abnormal development of the male reproductive organs. Other genetic syndromes associated with infertility include cystic fibrosis, Kallmann’s syndrome and Kartagener’s syndrome.
•  Celiac disease: A digestive disorder caused by sensitivity to gluten, celiac disease can cause male infertility. Fertility may improve after adopting a gluten-free diet.

•  Certain medications: Testosterone replacement therapy, long-term anabolic steroid use, cancer medications (chemotherapy), certain antifungal and antibiotic medications, some ulcer medications and other medications can impair sperm production and decrease male fertility.
•  Prior surgeries: Certain surgeries might prevent you from having sperm in your ejaculate, including vasectomy, inguinal hernia repairs, scrotal or testicular surgeries, prostate surgeries, and large abdominal surgeries performed for testicular and rectal cancers, among others. In most cases, surgery can be performed to either reverse these blockages or to retrieve sperm directly from the epididymis and testicles.

ENVIRONMENTAL CAUSES
Sperm production or function can be affected by overexposure to certain environmental elements, including:
•  Industrial chemicals: Extended exposure to benzenes, toluene, xylene, herbicides, pesticides, organic solvents, painting materials, and lead might contribute to low sperm counts.
•  Heavy metal exposure: Exposure to lead or other heavy metals also can cause infertility.
•  Radiation or X-rays: Exposure to radiation can reduce sperm production. It can take several years for sperm production to return to normal. With high doses of radiation, sperm production can be permanently reduced.
•  Overheating the testicles: Elevated temperatures impair sperm production and function. Although studies are limited and are inconclusive, frequent use of saunas or hot tubs might temporarily impair sperm count.
Sitting for long periods, wearing tight clothing or working on a laptop computer for long stretches of time also might increase the temperature in your scrotum and slightly reduce sperm production.

The good news is that many of these essentials for boosting sperm are contained in the famous “Swissgarde Sperm boosting pack”. Contact Swissgarde Distributor – Felix Joshua +2347038574473, 08074256315 for information on how to get yours.

HEALTH, LIFESTYLE AND OTHER CAUSES
Other causes of low sperm count include:
•  Drug use. Anabolic steroids taken to stimulate muscle strength and growth can cause the testicles to shrink and sperm production to decrease. Use of cocaine or marijuana might reduce the number and quality of your sperm as well.
•  Alcohol use. Drinking alcohol can lower testosterone levels and cause decreased sperm production.
•  Occupation. Certain occupations might be linked with a risk of infertility, including welding or those associated with prolonged sitting, such as truck driving. However, the data to support these associations is inconsistent.
•  Tobacco smoking. Men who smoke might have a lower sperm count than do those who don’t smoke.
•  Emotional stress. Severe or prolonged emotional stress, including stress about fertility, might interfere with hormones needed to produce sperm.
•  Weight. Obesity can impair fertility in several ways, including directly impacting sperm and by causing hormone changes that reduce male fertility.
•  Sperm testing issues. Lower than normal sperm counts can result from testing a sperm sample that was taken too soon after your last ejaculation; was taken too soon after an illness or stressful event, or didn’t contain all of the semen you ejaculated because some were spilled during collection. For this reason, results are generally based on several samples taken over a period of time.

Risk factors
A number of risk factors are linked to low sperm count and other problems that can cause low sperm count. They include:
•  Smoking tobacco
•  Drinking alcohol
•  Using certain illicit drugs
•  Being overweight
•  Having certain past or present infections
•  Being exposed to toxins
•  Overheating the testicles
•  Having experienced trauma to the testicles
•  Being born with a fertility disorder or having a blood relative with a fertility disorder
•  Having certain medical conditions, including tumors and chronic illnesses
•  Undergoing cancer treatments, such as radiation
•  Taking certain medications
•  Having a prior vasectomy or major abdominal or pelvic surgery
•  Having a history of undescended testicles

DIET & NUTRIENTS FOR HEALTHY MALE FERTILITY

•  Diet has a big impact on sperm health and male fertility. What you are eating today is impacting the sperm that will be swimming 3 months from now.
•  Study findings show a range of 42 to 76 days from the time of sperm production to ejaculation in normal men.
•  The changes that you make today are impacting the sperm you will be using two to three months from now. This means that it will take about 2-3 months for diet, herbs, and supplements to have an effect on sperm health.
Here are the nutrients specifically needed for a male fertility diet, they should be added to the diet as well as supplemented:
•  Zinc
  In men, zinc is considered one of the most important trace minerals for fertility; increasing zinc levels in infertile men has been shown to boost sperm levels, improve the form, function, and quality of the sperm thus decreasing male infertility.
Food sources: Calf liver, oysters, beef, lamb, venison, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, yogurt, turkey, peas, and shrimp. Zinc can be damaged by cooking so it is important to eat some foods high in zinc in their raw forms.
•  Selenium
Selenium is necessary for the creation of sperm. In studies, men with low sperm counts have also been found to have low levels of selenium.
Food sources: Brazil nuts, liver, snapper, cod, halibut, tuna, salmon, sardines, shrimp, and turkey.
 Vitamin E
Vitamin E has been shown in studies to improve sperm health and motility in men. Studies have also shown a diet deficient in Vitamin E to be a cause of infertility in rats. The meaning of the name for vitamin E ‘Tocopherol’ literally means to bear young. Vitamin E is an important antioxidant to help protect sperm and egg DNA integrity.
Food sources: Sunflower seeds, almonds, olives, spinach, papaya, and dark leafy greens.
•  Folic acid – New research suggests that folic acid can boost sperm health. Men with low levels of folate had increased risks for sperm that contained too little or too many chromosomes. If an egg is fertilized by an abnormal sperm it could result in a birth defect such as downs syndrome, or an increased chance of miscarriage.
Food sources: Liver, lentils, pinto beans, garbanzo beans, asparagus, spinach, black beans, navy beans, kidney beans, and collard greens.
•  Vitamin B12 – Also known as cobalamin, vitamin B12 is involved in cellular replication and studies indicate a deficiency can lead to reduced sperm count and motility. Supplementation is advised for any man whose sperm count is less than 20 million or has a motility rate of less than 50%. Studies indicate that supplementation with vitamin B12 at 1,000mcg per day may increase sperm count.
Food sources: Clams, oysters, muscles, liver, caviar (fish eggs), fish, crab, lobster, beef, lamb, cheese, and eggs.
•  Vitamin C – For men, vitamin C has been shown to improve sperm quality and protect sperm from DNA damage; helping to reduce the chance of miscarriage and chromosomal problems. Vitamin C also appears to keep sperm from clumping together, making them more motile.
Food sources: Abundant in plants and fruits including red peppers, broccoli, cranberries, cabbage, potatoes, tomatoes, and citrus fruit.
•  Necessary for every cell in the body for energy production, CoQ10 is an important antioxidant that helps to protect cells from free radical damage, thus protecting DNA: it is necessary for sperm motility in semen. Additionally, studies have shown that CoQ10 can increase sperm health.
Food sources: Found most abundantly in seafood and organ meats, though it is very difficult to obtain through the diet. CoQ10 Ubiquinol supplementation is the best way to obtain CoQ10 – keep in mind that amounts in the body decline with age.
