It is worth delving into CBD’s effect on fertility despite the lack of research simply because of what has been discovered so far.
Infertility Doesn’t Just Affect Women
Fertility problems don’t just affect women. Consider these alarming statistics for both sexes:
Male factor infertility is the primary issue in about 30% of all infertility cases.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 13.1% of women in the United States between the ages of 15-49 have impaired fertility.
1 in 6 couples in the United States deal with infertility, approximately 17%.
With these statistics in mind, it is understandable why couples have considered different forms of treatment for infertility, one of which is CBD.
Alternative Treatments for Infertility
Cannabidiol (CBD) works with the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). From an evolutionary perspective, if the ECS and its receptors were not necessary for human life, they would have disappeared long ago. So even though the ECS was recently discovered in the 1990’s, its contribution to human life is very significant.
So much so that studies have already found CBD to help increase sperm production. Scientifically speaking, the human brain is wired to accept cannabinoids as a signaling mechanism for sex hormone production.
Currently, there isn’t much medical literature on CBD’s effect on women’s hormonal and reproductive systems; however, CBD may be helpful for women to conceive in other ways.
For instance, CBD has been shown to alleviate anxiety and depression, two stressful conditions that can prohibit a woman’s ability to conceive. It is common knowledge that when the body perceives it is under high stress, the chances of conceiving are very low.
Before you begin using CBD during pregnancy, please consult the medical advice of your physician and/or ob/gyn. It is always recommended to conduct your own research, because if you do choose to use it, it is imperative that you buy CBD from a quality, reputable manufacturer.
