Hi
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.

Hi,
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.
Just plant one in your home ,its refreshing smell and presence will answer your queries.
Wish u good health

Hi!
thanks for choosing healthcaremagic.com.Tulsi/Holy Basil has been consumed since time immemorial in India.Lot of benefits are attributed to it like reducing severity of coughs and colds,boosting immunity via anti-oxidant effects,antistress etc.Several studies done on rats have shown antifertility effects.

My husband and I are trying to conceive. I am 31 years old. I had a child 10 year ago. I had a stillborn 8/2009 and a early miscarriage 12/05/2011. Done all the gentic blood tests, I have Mthrfr. I am RH neg. I don t have Poly Ovaries syn. Chroms are normal for both of us. Sonogram shows healthy uterus and ovaries. I am taking Metformin, baby asprin, and 20 folic acids a day, prenatals and DHA for the last year and half. In 2005, I was extremely stressed as a full time single mom, student and pt worker. I stopped having a peiod for 2 months, then for 2 month I bled softball size clots, was put on birth control to stop a 2 month long blood clotting problem. BC regulated my periods. I took myself off of BC after six months everything was fine until Nov. 2008 stress of my wedding preparations stop my period for 2 months. Since November 2007 I have been very sexually active with husband (still have sex daily). I have been over weight 35 IBM for 12 years. Doctors feel it is my weight that is causing infertity and not hormones. I recently started the Atkins diet , protein, veggies but did have apples and whole wheat and lost 8 lbs in 2weeks (felt wonderful). Now in the last 4 days I have been bloated, feel starving and full at the same time I have a fluttering in my stomach, heartburn and always feels full even when I don t eat and I am constantly exhausted boardering lethargy , hair is growing rapidly in places a lady shouldn t get hair. I feel migrain/ headache symptoms , tightness around abdomin, neck, back and lower back. Fluctuating bowel movements (constipaion to regualar to missed bowel movements) My sex drive is off the charts if I am not depressed. I haven t had a period since 12/10/2011. My discharge is always clear (egg white) consistant or normal never dry. I am a stay home mother and am moody, agressive, sometimes violent with objects, not people in the house and hold no patience, it isn t like me and I am scared. I have troubles sleeping and when I get sleep- i will sleep 10-12 hours a day and still be exausted. I cry at the top of a hat, I get anxiety were I haven t ever before. I don t always ovulate, I want clomid badly. The doctors don t feel i have a problem and i get constantly redirected to a new doctors all the time, with no feeling of hope, Im frustrated. I was born to be a mother, it is my life ambition. Can somone please help me! What is wrong with me!

hello doctor, I m 30 years old and having periods every 40 days.I also had a mis-carriage during the first 1.5 years. From there, we were trying and not succesful. So decided to go for treatment. Going for treatment for the past 1yr. Initial tests shows that insulin is not normal.doctor advised to take diabetin/glucophage 50mg.After these tablets, insulin become normal. Still continuing the tablets. Also, taking Diane 35/Progyluton for past 8 months, now i get periods in every 30 days. Doctor planned to do IUI initially and started the ultra sound scanning and found that no eggs formed on the follicle.follicle keeps growing and doctor confirmed that no egg found and it could be Follicular ovarian cyst. Also taking serophene 50 mg (2 day to 6th day) and doctor planned to increase it to 100mg later on. Also if it doesn t work she planned to do injection. Question: 1. Wanted to understand the criticality of the problem? 2. what treatment is necessary at this stage ?is it curable and what is the success percentage on such treatment. 3. can you advise any doctor in chennai? My weight: 55.5kg. Height : 153 cms

Hi doctor, im hoping someone can help me. these topics are not easy to be open about. i have been on the 2 month injection, nur- isterate for about 2years now. During the past two months, I've used various types of drugs recreationally. Mdma, E, cocaine, lsd, shrooms and cannabis. I've noticed that my menstrual cycle is earlier, longer and heavier. I'm due for my next injection in 3 weeks and I've been bleeding for 9days.

should I be worried? what type of effect could these drugs have on the contraceptive? does it reduce the contraceptives efficacy? also, I've been told that the injection is known to promote infertility. I've been on it for 2years and I am 20 years old, should I change my contraceptive?

Hi,I am a 31 y/o currently seeing an infertility doctor for my husbands low sperm count. We know we have to do ivf/icsi and we've already paid for it. I went to my clinic for day 2 and 3 testing and they cancelled our cycle b/c they said that I have elevated FSH levels. They said it happens sometimes and that I could just be stressed. They told me to come back next cycle and try again. Could this mean I could be going through early menopause or premature ovarian failure? Are there other tests they could do before getting a definitive answer?
