Conceptions Tea: Gentle & Effective Female Fertility Support

Conceptions Tea: Gentle & Effective Female Fertility Support

Are you looking for gentle, complete female fertility support? Are you desiring to support your body in the best way as you prepare for conception? Conceptions Tea may be one of the best ways to support female fertility and prepare for pregnancy! Teas provide an excellent way for your body to receive the medicinal benefits of dried plant parts. Steeping the tea plant parts in almost boiling water extracts the medicinal properties of the plants, which enables your body to absorb vital nutrients and utilize 100% of the medicinal actions. Teas are also easier to digest than capsules or whole plant parts. Because Conception Tea is liquid, it also helps to hydrate your body, while promoting gentle cleansing.

Conceptions Tea contains a blend of herbs specific to the female reproductive system. This tea blend works to normalize and tone the reproductive organs, cleanse and clear congestion of the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes, while promoting hormonal balance. Conceptions Tea is part of our popular Fertility Cleanse, but it may also be continued, or used alone for up to 6 months in preparation conception, or as part of your Natural Fertility healing plan.

Licorice Root (Glycyrrhiza glabra)- a wonderful hormone balancer, licorice root helps to maintain proper hormone production and release to enhance the chances of conception. Licorice may also work to support proper adrenal gland function. Proper adrenal gland function is necessary for hormonal balance. Licorice Rt. also helps to add a nice flavor to this tea blend.

Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)- An Ayurvedic fertility tonic that is used to nourish the ovaries and uterus. Ashwagandha is also nourishing and balancing to the thyroid, an important component of the endocrine system. Ashwagandha is also an effective tool for combating depression, aiding in healthy stress management.

Dong Quai (Angelica sinensis)- A wonderful reproductive toner which increases circulation to the uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes. This is one of the best herbs for supporting uterine health. Dong Quai is an effective aid for regulating hormonal control; promoting a healthy menstrual cycle.

Black Cohosh (Actaea racemosa) – An herb known for its ability to aid in regulation of the entire menstrual cycle (from amenorrhea to dysmenorrhea), to relax the uterus aiding in occasional reproductive system discomfort and to aid in healthy uterine tone.

Burdock Root (Cimicifuga racemosa)- A great detoxifying cleanser that helps to rid the liver of excess hormones and toxins that can inhibit a pregnancy. Proper liver function is essential to proper hormonal balance!

Wild Yam (Dioscorea villosa)- Helps to promote normal hormone levels and overall balance within the reproductive system. Wild Yam may also help the uterus to work more efficiently during menses. This uterine support allows for proper function of the uterus while working to prevent uterine cramping or spasm.

Stevia for flavor.

You can see how these each of these herbs individual medicinal action supports female fertility in a variety of ways. Consuming them in a tea blend allows for multiple medicinal actions to blend together to create multiple benefits.

How to Prepare Conceptions Tea Properly

Conceptions Tea is a loose-leaf tea, meaning it does not come in individual tea bags. In order to make this tea, you will need some kind of tea tool, such as: fine mesh strainer, your own tea bags cloth or muslin, a stainless-steel tea ball or a tea French press.

1. Stir up the Conceptions Tea, during shipping it may have settled. You are going to want to get a variety of each of the herbs each time you make it.

2. For 1 cup of Conceptions Tea, place a 1-2 tsp. of dried herbs in a tea cup (mug). For 2-3 cups of Conceptions Tea, put 3-4 heaping tsp of dried herbs in a glass canning jar.

3. Pour boiling water over the herbs, cover with a small plate for 1 cup method, or cap tightly if making in a glass canning jar. Let steep for a minimum of 30 minutes. Capping tightly insures you will not let any of the medicinal qualities of the herbs evaporate; this is especially important for the volatile oils contained in many of the plants. Because this tea is a mixture of bark (hard parts) and leaves, it needs to be steeped for the required time or longer to extract the medicinal properties of the hard bark parts. For 1 cup of Conceptions Tea, steep for 15 minutes. For a quart, steep for 30 minutes to 3 hours.

Conceptions Tea should only be consumed consistently for up to 6 months. Do not use this tea during pregnancy.

Helpful Tips

  • Make a larger batch, strain it, and put it in the refrigerator. That way you have 3 cups for the entire day made in advance.
  • Some women have never tried herbal teas and find the taste of Conceptions Tea can be different than other flavors they are used to. If you find you are one of those women, try drinking the tea cold. Add lemon, a bit of hibiscus flower, or cherry juice for flavor.
  • Do not steep the tea for more than 3-4 hours. Steep for less time for a milder flavor.
  • Strain the tea well in a fine mesh strainer or use a bag to reduce plant part sediment.

Conceptions Tea is one of the best fertility aids, whether you are preparing for conception, wanting to support healthy reproductive function, or desiring to aid your body in healing a pre-existing fertility issue. This tea is gentle, yet very effective and balancing overall. Conceptions Tea is a supportive, nourishing fertility tonic and would be a good addition for any woman looking to boost her fertility!

As an herbalist, I feel that consuming herbs through a medicinal infusion (tea) is a safe, effective way to nourish the body systems. The medicinal action of the herbs in Conceptions Tea is readily available to the body for absorption, and is digested and utilized easily. Have you supported your fertility in a healthy way today? Conceptions Tea may be a great way to do that!

    Ho-Shou-Wu Rt. (Fo-Ti) is associated with potential liver damage in the product and in the 4th place of the ingredient list. So far as I know, even in China, Ho-Shou-Wu Rt. (Fo-Ti) has been limited to be used due to above reason. Is it okay to take conception tea having such ingredient which can cause potential damage to your body?

    • Dear Mariya,

      Conceptions Tea is completely safe! There is no record of it or any of the herbs in it causing any harm to the body.

      It is important to know that Ho Shu Wu or Fo Ti should always be prepared with black beans or black soybeans. A very reputable herb source, Mountain Rose Herbs, shares this, “Chinese tradition teaches that the herb should be used by itself or cured in the water used to cook black soybeans for this purpose. The curing of Fo-Ti has been found to increase the phosphates (presumably lecithin) by close to 30%, also increasing the sugar content. The production of traditional Fo-Ti root according to traditional Chinese medicine is revered and is keep as a close secret, however the basic process involves curing raw Fo-Ti roots in a soup of black soybean sauce.” This processes is known to remove any potential liver-harming potential of this herb.

      Thank you so much Elizabeth for your detailed response towards my doubt of liver damaging affect.

    • You are welcome Mariya!

      In reading the comment about liver damage concern and the response about Fo-Ti being cured in soybean sauce, I would like to clarify on something. I am strict Paleo due to stage IV Endometriosis and I avoid soy at all costs. My jar of conceptions tea doesn’t list that it contains soy. I don’t know anything about the actual curing process but would it be safe to say that there are no soy remains in the tea itself?

    • Dear Molly,

      The Fo-Ti in Conceptions Tea is prepared with black beans (not black soybeans). Conceptions Team does not contain soy.

      Hello Elizabeth,

      Thank you for clarifying on the Fo-Ti and curing process with the black beans, however, I just want to point out that your comment on May 23, 2018 mentions black soybeans twice. So to clarify even further, you are stating that Fo-Ti in general can be prepared with black beans or black soybeans but the version of Fo-Ti used in Conceptions Tea was cured using black beans only? It that correct?

      Thank you!

    • Dear Molly,

      Yes, the Fo-ti in Conceptions tea has been prepared with black beans (not soy).

    Is it ok to continue drinking Fertili Tea after ovulation? I ordered some and have been drinking it since the beginning of my cycle however I just confirmed ovulation and want to know if its ok to continue taking it through the latter half of my cycle.

    • Dear Mia,

      Do reach out to the makers of Fertili Tea to ask them your questions. If there is concern or you can’t get through to them right away, it could be paused if you actively tried to conceive (starting again as instructed if you do not conceive).

    Hello, I just need to know if these herbs should be taken in follicular phase 1 or luteal phase 2. Ginger, Raspberry Leaves, Lady’s Mantle,Skullcap,Wild Yam, Nettle Leaves, Cinnamon,Damiana Leaves,Ashwagandha Root, Red Clover, Black Cohosh, Spearmint and Fo-Ti Root.

    • Dear Dee Dee,

      Each of these herbs can be taken all cycle long. It is always best to follow the suggested use of the manufacturer however. Black Cohosh is not suggested to be used longer than 6 months in a row unless otherwise directed by your naturopath or herbalist.

    Do you have a version of conceptions tea that does not contain stevia? I am allergic to stevia and suffer seizures and severe hypoglycemic episodes that are life threatening if I consume stevia, plus for myself and others it has an intensely bitter flavor as well. Not to mention that studies have shown that stevia reduces fertility and was traditionally used for that purpose in herbal birth control preparations. Each woman can use her preferred sweetener.

    • Dear Christy,

      I’m sorry you have such a reaction and aversion to Stevia. We do not know Stevia to be anti-fertility and certainly not in the amounts that it is in Conceptions Tea. That said, you can’t consume it and I completely understand why.

      Perhaps considering an herbal infusion like our Three Ps tea or another shared here in our guide Nutritive Herbal Teas For Preconception Through Pregnancy would be worth considering.

      I hope you find a fertility tea you enjoy and that is safe for you to consume!

    I’m about to undergo a frozen embryo transfer as part of an IVF treatment in about 3-4 months. Is there a tea you would recommend to prepare my body/uterus for this? I also take Synthroid 0.1mg to regulate my thyroid.

    Do you know the purity of this tea? It is not organic so do you know that it doesn’t contain high levels of pesticides?

    • Dear Meagan,

      Fertilica products are manufactured with the highest quality ingredients, GMP certified (3rd party FDA mandated), whole food and organic when possible. Product ingredients have gone through validation tests to verify they are free of herbicides, pesticides, soy, dairy, gluten, heavy metals, and many other contaminants. This is standard practice.

    I am currently prescribed with Progyluton to regulate my periods, Is it okay to drink the conceptions tea while on this medication ?
    Thank you so much for this wonderful tea!

    • Dear Kelly,

      I am glad you like Conceptions Tea!

      We suggest against combining herbs that act on the hormonal system with medication as they could affect how your medications are working. It is best to only use herbs in preparation beforehand and not mix the two.

    When is the best time to start drinking the conception teas?

    • Hello Mea!

      Conceptions Tea can be started at any time in the cycle and used all cycle long, unless experiencing heavy menstrual bleeding in which case it should be stopped during menstruation.

      Enjoy this awesome tea!

    Should you use the tea after ovulation? Also, why can you only use for 6 months? Thank you! I love the tea.

    • Dear Cathy,

      Conceptions Tea can be consumed all cycle long, even during menstruation if there is not heavy menstrual flow, without taking a break. It is to be discontinued if you think may be pregnant or confirm pregnancy.

      The reason Conceptions Tea is only to be consumed for 6 months is because Black Cohosh is an herb that is only to be taken consistently for 6 months maximum.

      I am glad you like Conceptions Tea!

      Hi Elizabeth,
      You mentioned Black Cohosh in the tea, but I do not see that in the ingredients list. Is it really in the tea? If so, are there any other ingredients included that aren’t listed on the label?


    • Hello Samantha!

      Conception’s Tea does contain Black Cohosh root. This is the only herb in the tea not described here (for reasons I can not explain) at this time. Black Cohosh is listed as an ingredient on the product sales page at the Natural Fertility Shop and on the product label. It is an edit I can make however.

      Thank you for asking and pointing this out to me!

    Hi dear thanks for the detailed info about conception tea. i would like to know if somebody has very irregular periods (like on periods almost whole month or twice a month) and also for TTC ,,, CAN ALSO USE IT ?


    • Hi Suma,

      It is fine to drink Conceptions Tea during the menstrual period. Bleeding long-term or irregularly throughout the month is a sign that something in the body is not functioning properly. It would be a good idea to get in to see a doctor to help you determine the cause of this type of bleeding.

      I hope you get this figured out!

    “Conceptions Tea should only be used consistently for up to 6 months. Do not use this tea during pregnancy.”

    So, after the fertility cleanse, if I want to continue the Conceptions Tea, how should I take it? It says “consistently.” Does that mean throughout the entire cycle, even during menstruation? And, do the directions change if I am actively trying to conceive (i.e. stop use after ovulation)?

    I found this information great. I had not heard of a couple of the herbs in this tea. I look forward to trying it.
