Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

There are not many studies to prove that Tulsi leaves consumption causes infertility.Moreover in Ayurveda , Tulsi leaves consumption is said to decrease problems of infertility.

Take care.

Tulsi is a sacred plant for Hindus and it is worshipped by indian married ladies for the same in every house.
No,it doesnot lead to infact help in infertility problems also besides many benefits of phytonutrients in it.
