There are different types of yoga, each designed to achieve specific goals; the best ones for beginners to practice when trying to conceive are:
Wide-legged standing forward bend (Prasarita Padottanasana). This asana relaxes and releases the inside of the legs, which brings energy and blood to the reproductive organs.
Garland pose (Malasana). This position opens the hips, groin, calves, and feet while releasing tension in the lower organs and lower back.
Half bridge pose (Setu Bandha Sarvangasana). This posture exerts a gentle pressure on the thyroid glands, which helps them function. It also helps to strengthen and stabilize the sacrum. This is important because instability here irritates and inflames the surrounding muscles.
Legs up the wall (Viparita Karani). This position essentially regulates the endocrine and lymphatic systems in a gentle and restorative way. This pose should be avoided during your period.
Standing forward bend (Hastapadasana). While improving blood circulation in your body. This yoga pose is also vital for making your body flexible and releasing all stress from the abdomen area.
There is evidence of a positive relation between yoga and fertility. Studies from the Harvard Medical School looked at a group of women who had been trying to conceive for more than a year; those who practiced yoga achieved pregnancy at a rate three times greater. Another study in the US found that six weeks of yoga lowered the anxiety levels in women undergoing IVF.

Although yoga can surely improve the chances of getting pregnant, in many cases, the root of an infertility problem can be deeper and need the help of other medical resources, like IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) and IUI (Intrauterine Insemination).
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is a type of artificial insemination that involves depositing the sperm directly into the uterus. The patient is subjected to mild ovarian stimulation; then, the sperm swim towards the fallopian tubes, where fertilization occurs. IUI is one of the least complex methods and one of the first that couples turn to when looking for fertility treatment options.
At The Fertility Center, Mexico, Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) costs $1,100.*
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is a type of assisted reproduction procedure where, unlike intrauterine insemination (where fertilization takes place directly in the woman’s reproductive system), fertilization takes place outside the woman’s body, in a laboratory, with sperm from the partner or a donor. As a result of fertilization, the best quality embryo is selected and transferred to the uterus so the mother can achieve pregnancy.
At The Fertility Center, Mexico, IVF costs $7,500 – 70% cheaper than in the US!
