Particular Yoga Postures To Aid Fertility

Do you want to have babies but are unable to? It may be difficult to conceive, especially when your procreating years are waning. The late 20s or late 30s somehow bring on a decline in production of “creative” eggs. That compels women to go for fertility treatments just to get pregnant and have children before really hitting the mature age.

Most women decide to have a baby only after they’ve established with their careers, and that’s usually when you’re well into the third decade of your life. And when they reach that decision, these women go into it with all their systems going, meaning adjusting and revising every aspect of their lives for that. Lifestyles get overturned, including eating and dietary habits and exercise regimens.  Some women even turn out gym or exercise fanatics, going into a completely opposite direction from the trend of sedentary lifestyles and couch potatoes. To the point of sometimes getting to the extreme where the doctor would have to instruct you to lay it low.

Which brings us to the question of how a woman can get her body ready for a lifestyle change of sedentary to active? Many doctors are already exhorting their patients to go into yoga regularly. Among the numerous yoga postures and stances are those that are directly beneficial to the reproductive system. These poses open up the area of the pelvis and the nearby areas that manage to stimulatepelvic circulation. Moreover, regularly practicing Yoga enhances a general sense of rest.

The following are just some of those poses:

1. Bridge Pose. With regular performance of this pose, your pains and discomforts from menses are eased because of the stimulation effect on the reproductive organs. Your brain gets stilled and your stress relieved. The pose is begun lain on the floor.  Then bend your knees, put your feet flat on the floor and as close to your hip bones as possible. Then lift your buttocks off the floor, creating a bridge while clasping your hands below.

2. Cobbler’s Pose. Customarily considered to be a natural cure for infertility, this pose also stirs up your abdominal organs and ovaries. This is done sitting on the floor with your knees bent and laid out towards the side.Putting your feet together, grasp your toes or ankles with your hands.

3. Lotus Pose. Similarly stirring up the pelvis, this pose also targets the spine, abdomen and bladder areas. Performing this posture for the whole duration of your pregnancy helps relieve you of the pains of childbirth. You start out seated with legs crossed on the floor. Then put one foot each on top of each thigh. Difficulty or pain experienced while doing it is not a problem; just sit cross-legged. Put your thumb and middle fingers together, on your knees.

4. Reclining Hero Pose. this pose calls for support (a bolster pillow will do) along the length of your back. This pose opens and releases the abdomen, which causes a relief from menstrual pains. You start by kneeling then sitting down between your feet, gradually stretching out until you are fully lying on the floor. This is called an intermediate pose - you do it supported by another pillow on your back until you are experienced enough to practice without the pillow.

Regular performance of these poses, like acupressure, fertility pelvic massage and reflexology facilitate circulation and oxygenation of the pelvis.

You can do these poses by yourself, at home, not necessarily assisted or guided by a professional. Don’t forget that you must consult with your physician prior to embarking on a new exercise program. Equally important is this reminder not to consider and use Yoga as the sole treatment, doing away with medical opinion and medical cures.
