Bach Flower Remedies for Fertility: Natural Treatment for the Emotional Aspect

There are many different natural remedies for infertility that a person can use in order to increase their chances of getting pregnant. One such remedy is Bach flower remedies. This type of holistic treatment focuses on the emotional aspect of why someone may not be able to conceive. For example, if someone is under a lot of stress or feels anxious about getting pregnant, Bach flower remedies could help alleviate those feelings and improve fertility. In this blog post, we will discuss how Bach flower remedies can be used as a natural treatment for infertility and the benefits they offer.

Common causes of infertility

There are many factors that can contribute to infertility, and it is often a complex issue with no single cause. Age is one of the most common causes of infertility, as fertility declines with age. Other common causes include endocrine disorders, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and male factor infertility, which may be due to low sperm count or poor sperm quality. Additionally, uterine fibroids, pelvic inflammatory disease, and stress or anxiety can also impact fertility. The good news is that there are natural fertility treatments available that can help address these underlying causes and improve your chances of conceiving. If you are struggling with infertility, talk to your doctor about the options available to you.

How stress and anxiety can impact fertility

It's no secret that stress and anxiety can take a toll on our bodies, impacting everything from our sleep patterns to our immune systems. But what many people don't realise is that these mental health conditions can also have a significant impact on fertility. For example, high levels of stress can lead to the release of the hormone cortisol, which can interfere with ovulation. Similarly, anxiety can trigger the fight-or-flight response, which can again disrupt ovulation and reduce fertility. Fortunately, there are a number of holistic fertility treatments that can help to address these issues. Acupuncture, meditation, and natural remedies are all excellent ways to reduce stress and promote relaxation. By incorporating these therapies into their fertility treatment plan, women can improve their chances of conceiving.

Dealing with the emotional aspect of infertility

Infertility can be a very emotionally taxing experience. It can be hard to come to terms with the fact that you may not be able to have children of your own. You may feel like you are less of a woman if you can't get pregnant. You may feel isolated, alone, and like no one understands what you are going through. All of these feelings are normal. If you are struggling with the emotional aspect of infertility, holistic treatments such as Bach flower remedies can help. These remedies can help you to cope with the emotions that come with infertility and may even improve your chances of getting pregnant.

What are Bach Flower Remedies and how do they work for fertility issues

Bach flower remedies are natural remedies that are used to treat emotional and physical issues. There are 38 Bach flower remedies, each made from a different type of flower or tree. Bach flower remedies are prepared by infusing the flowers in water and then taking the essence of the flower. They are a natural, gentle and safe way to treat emotional issues without side effects that often come with pharmaceutical drugs such as anti-anxiety medication or antidepressants. They are safe for all ages including pregnant women and babies.

Bach flower remedies work by addressing the negative emotions that are associated with infertility. The goal of the Bach flower remedies is to improve emotional wellbeing, which in turn can improve fertility. Flower remedies can help with a number of emotional issues. They are commonly used for stress, anxiety, depression, fatigue and sleeping issues but they can help with a whole range of emotions.

Read more about these natural remedies for infertility.


Agrimony is for if you hide your worries behind a smile, putting on a brave face to the world but underneath you're struggling emotionally - be that with worry, anxiety or dealing with negative things going on in your life. This remedy will help you open up and be truthful with people close to you about what's going on in your mind.


Aspen is for if you feel anxious or edge but you don't know why. There's no specific reason for your anxiety you just have a general sense of foreboding or constant sense of unease. This remedy will help reduce your apprehension.


Elm is for if you feel overwhelmed by pressure or responsibility. You're usually a strong person but you feel temporarily like things are too much and you're struggling to cope. A feeling of not being able to keep up. This remedy will help bring you back to your usual self and a return of confidence.


Gentian is for if you feel despondent or low mood due to a set-back, for example a negative pregnancy test. It's understandable to feel down after such an event. You may feel pessimistic but you will continue to keep trying. If you feel like you've completely lost hope and are at the point of giving up, you should look to try Gorse instead with is for a more pronounced low mood and loss of hope. Both these natural remedies will help bring positivity and hope.


Holly is for if you feel anger towards someone else, perhaps a partner. This is a strong emotion and you may feel complete rage or aggression. If you feel jealousy or envy you should also consider Holly - perhaps if a close friend or family member has just announced their pregnant and you're struggling to deal with that. Holly will help bring love and goodwill.


Impatiens is for impatience. This is a common emotion for those trying to conceive naturally as you grow more and more impatient and irritable. Impatiens types want everything done in a hurry, they have an active mind and struggle to relax which can lead to tension and exhaustion.


Mimulus is for anxiety if there is a known fear (unlike Aspen with is for anxiety for no reason.) It's likely you might be anxious about your health or why you're not conceiving so this is often a popular remedy for fertility.


Olive is for physical exhaustion where your body is completely depleted perhaps after a long period of strain or physical exertion. You feel completely drained like you have nothing left to give. This remedy will help you feel rejuvenated and energised.


Pine is for feelings of guilt. You blame yourself for your problems with getting pregnant - whether it's your fault or not. Perhaps you're punishing yourself unnecessarily. Pine will help you be more balanced about your feelings.

Star of Bethlehem

This remedy is to support feelings of shock or numbness after a trauma, or to deal with unresolved trauma that may have happened a while ago but is still impacting you negatively in your emotions today. Unfortunately many people have to deal with trauma in their lives and trying to get pregnancy unsuccessfully can bring with it trauma, for example having to experience a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy. This remedy will help bring you comfort.


Vervain is for people who are get so enthusiastic about something that they don't allow themselves to rest. This enthusiasm can be all consuming which can lead to stress and tension. These people often take on too much - for example taking on too many projects at work - which means they don't allow for rest and recovery. This level of non-stop activity can put too much stress on your body. This remedy will help you to unwind.

White Chestnut

White Chestnut is for those with an overactive mind that doesn't stop whirring with non-stop chatter or worry. Perhaps you replay things in your mind or have mental arguments with yourself. This remedy is often taken for insomnia and can help calm your overactive mind.


Willow is for feelings of resentment and bitterness, which may appear after a long period of trying to conceive. A feeling of "why me?" and "life's not fair." You may begrudge others their good fortune for example if a friend announces they're pregnant.
