A woman is fertile when she is ovulating and for a few days before ovulation when fertile cervical mucus is present.
Ovulation usually occurs mid cycle. More precisely, ovulation usually occurs 14 days before the onset of bleeding.
But there are women who suffered infertility. Infertility is usually defined as the inability to get pregnant after a year of unprotected sex.
Both men and women can suffered infertility.
Causes for women:
Problems with ovulation account for most cases of infertility in women. Without ovulation, there are no eggs to be fertilized. Some signs that a woman is not ovulating normally include irregular or absent menstrual periods.
Less common causes of fertility problems in women include:
* blocked fallopian tubes due to pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, or surgery for an ectopic pregnancy
* physical problems with the uterus
* uterine fibroids
Causes for men:
Infertility in men is most often caused by:
* problems making sperm — producing too few sperm or none at all
* problems with the sperm’s ability to reach the egg and fertilize it — abnormal sperm shape or structure prevent it from moving correctly
How can Spirulina help you?

Spirulina is one of the superfoods that will help you.
Spirulina is a tiny aquatic plant has been eaten by humans since prehistoric times and is grown worldwide as a healthy food. Imagine a vegetable with more protein than soy, more Vitamin A than carrots, more iron than beef, profound source of protective phytochemicals, naturally low in fat, source of the essential fatty acid GLA and is easy to digest.
This nutrient dense algae contains a wealth of minerals, antioxidants and protein which feeds your eggs with the nutrients they need and alkalinizes your body.
Spirulina makes it easy to get your greens every day. Microalgae contains chlorophyll, amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and steroid building blocks. Spirulina is saltwater blue-green algae. Not only does spirulina increase fertility, but it is rich in many vitamins and minerals to improve your overall health. Spirulina nourishes the endocrine, nervous, and immune systems, regulates metabolism, and repairs tissue. Increased fertility from spirulina is thought to be due to the high protein content, which in turn can increase the quality of your eggs. This is particularly beneficial in those of “advanced maternal age” (as they call it), age 35+.
