How to Take Shatavari to Enhance Female Fertility


Shatavari is another Ayurvedic remedy for female infertility and sexual health issues. It has therapeutic applications for women of all ages and stages of their lives, and is in fact so powerful and significant as a female reproductive health herb that it has been traditionally referred to as “able to have one hundred husbands”! 


Shatavari has been shown to improve ovarian physiology, increase uterine weight, and increase estrogen levels in rats (note that shatavari contains phytoestrogens). In other animal studies, the herb has been shown to have estrogenic effects on the mammary glands and reproductive organs of rats that had been given shatavari daily for 15 days.

In humans, Shatavari is particularly valuable for the treatment of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). It also generally prepares the womb for conception and stimulates the preparation of follicles in the ovaries while also encouraging ovulation to occur. In addition, it improves the overall quality of eggs that are released during ovulation, thus improving the chances that the egg will be fertilized, that the fetus will remain viable throughout the pregnancy, and that the baby born will be healthy. The herb has also been noted for its special abilities in treating female infertility caused by stress. 


Shatavari can be used in cases of threatened miscarriage as a preventative (though it should not be taken throughout an entire pregnancy), or it can be taken prior to conception to prepare the body more thoroughly for pregnancy.


Shatavari can also help regulate the menstrual cycle, including not only by encouraging the growth and development of follicles, but also by regulating cycle length, menstrual flow, and hormone-related symptoms such as those seen in PMS. Other benefits of Shatavari on female reproductive health include: 


  • Menopause-related symptoms
  • Postmenopausal osteoporosis
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Low libido (Shatavari increases desire and improves sexual performance and satisfaction in women in general)
  • Low breastmilk production (Shatavari is a galactagogue)
  • Postpartum depression (as well as other postpartum symptoms, such as insomnia, hot flashes, and constipation)


Before conception, Shatavari may be taken at a dose of 1000-2000mg per day in capsulized form or 4.5-8.5mL of dried plant liquid extract. It may be taken during pregnancy, though some practitioners advise that it should only be taken in cases of threatened miscarriage or stillbirth, and that it should otherwise be avoided outside of these particular situations.
