Fertility-Friendly Resources

As per the World Health Organization (WHO), infertility affects about 70 million people worldwide. Both, male and female fertility declined significantly over the past 50 years. One of the reasons for increased infertility rates has to do with our daily use of products containing fertility reducing chemicals - endocrine disruptors. You can learn what’s in your products by reading the product label, however, many manufacturers don't disclose all ingredients of their product labels. Below are some "clean" natural products for your consideration. There are a lot more fertility-friendly products out there, so if you have your favorite one, please share it here.
