Yoga intervention may be used as an integrated form of exercise in enhanced pregnancy in infertile couple, particularly in women diagnosed with unexplained cause of infertility, some scientists suggested.

Infertility is condition characterized by inability of a couple to conceive after 12 months of unprotected sexual intercourse,  affecting over 5 millions couple alone in the U.S.and many times more in the world

Yoga, the acient technique practice for harmonized external and internal body well beings, through breath control, meditation, bodily movement and gesture..... has been best known for people in Western world and some parts in Asia due to health benefits reported by various respectable institutes' research and supported by health advocates.

In the examine of  a total of 38 year-old woman with infertility of unknown origin with failure of 18 conventional fertility treatments in 5 different fertility centers and 3 different countries with several complications admitted to an Ayurvedic outpatient clinic, researchers found that yoga used combination with other techniques in Ayurveda expressed a higher likelihood of pregnancy.and giving birth of healthy baby.

After  taking into account of other con founders, Dr. Kessler C, the lead author said, " Ayurveda may be a useful complementary option in the case of fertile conventional treatment attempts in female infertility".

Indeed, yoga intervention in improvement of fertility has been found to associate to various fronts involving several implications.

Yoga relaxation and meditation reduced stress showed to
* Enhance sexual desire through stimulated secretion of testosterone hormone
* Bring back the presence by letting go of event causing stress or dealing the stress in the profound way.

These results increased the natural state of awareness of expected mother and father in change of life style and healthy eating which have a strong impact in the stimulated the gastrointestinal function in absorbed nutrients, respiratory system in provided oxygen and circulatory systems to move blood to uterus for conception.
In Men, the moving blood to the reproductive organ enhanced normal sperm count and sperm quality
for making readiness of egg fertilization.

In women, the reduced stress and calming the central nervous system also reduced production of stress hormone in alternated the menstrual cycle expression.

 In other words, yoga intervention restored the secretion hormones in each stage of menstrual in initiated egg release eggs, each month from the ovaries.

Some researchers explained that stress induced production of adrenaline, catecholamines and cortisol, which can inhibit the release GnRH (gonadotropin releasing hormone) in responsible for the release of sex hormones in produced luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) from the pituitary gland in facilitated the gonads to release sex hormones.

In the support of the above illustration, Dr. Khalsa HK suggested that yoga can help women who experience the challenges of infertility by increasing the clarity of the mind and maintaining healthy body chemistry and connected and balanced the mind and the body in awareness of feel better about the body itself, and begins to treat the body with more respect, particularly in keeping patients positive and patience to undergo the rigors of infertility treatments in conventional medicine.

The study also indicated that infertile women understanding of above implications may lead to healthier lifestyle habits as well as increased sensitivity regarding symptoms and body processes.

Truly, according to the study by the McGrill University, yoga showed a positive effect in treating psychological symptoms such as fear, anxiety and depression and improving the overall quality of life in IVF patients, through letting go of the stress  in the study of 49 infertile women recruited to participate in a 6-week Yoga class during 2013 while awaiting their IVF treatment

And, in the impact of lifestyle modifications, diet, and vitamin supplementation on natural fertility, the University Hospitals/ Case Western Reserve School of Medicine study also agreed that change of life style habit such as smoking and alcohol, maintained weight loss are important features in lower the risk of infertility.  Yoga practice in reduced the psychological aspects may also be helpful in increased chance of fertility, particularly in unexplained cause of women infertility.
