(NaturalNews) A series of studies featured in the journal Human Reproduction reveal an unsettling truth: fertility starts declining in women alarmingly soon and most couples are not even aware of it. The same study reveals that increasingly more couples think they can rely on fertility drugs to conceive later in life, grossly overestimating their efficiency.

Fertility starts slowly declining during the late 20s

Women in their early 20s have about 50 percent chances to conceive two days before ovulation, when they are most fertile. The age at which a woman's biological clock starts ticking is now thought to be around 27, and that's when she loses 10 percent of her fertility, bringing her odds of conceiving at 40 percent. At only 35, her chances of conceiving drop to 30%. Having a partner who is at least 5 years older puts the chances of conception at further risk, according to the journal Human Reproduction.

Sadly, statistics show that 67 percent of women and 81 percent of men think that fertility starts to markedly decline only after 40.

Moreover, 52 percent of women and 64 percent of men think that the success rate of most fertility treatments is between 40 and 100 percent. In reality, the success rate of fertility treatments after the age of 44 is only 3 percent.

What causes infertility?

While some genetic factors and various diseases can influence reproductive health, for the majority of healthy females, the primary causes of fertility decline are poor lifestyle choices. Smoking, excessive body weight, food additives, pesticides, medication, drugs, radiation, and GMOs have all proven to be devastating for the fertility of both women and men.

One Austrian study in particular showed that the fertility and fetus viability of mice fed GMOs were severely impaired when compared to that of mice fed organic food. But losing fertility wasn't the only problem. GMO fed mice aged faster, were more likely to get sick, and frequently miscarried.

2 often ignored herbs that can improve fertility

Chasteberry is used to relieve menstrual pains, but also to increase fertility by stimulating the pituitary gland in the brain (which is involved in regulating sex organ function). Studies from Germany have consistently shown Chasteberry to be effective in alleviating a number of gynecological and reproductive problems, though the successful findings in Germany have not spurred further scientific interest in this plant. Medicinal Chasteberry is usually dried and can be used to prepare liquid extracts.

Dong Quai, commonly known as "female ginseng", is a Chinese herb that has been used as a natural remedy for gynecological problems for thousands of years. Boasting the ability to balance the hormones, Dong Quai can also increase the chances of impregnation by improving blood flow to the pelvic area and by strengthening the uterus. Additionally, the herb contains a generous combination of cancer-fighting flavonoids and cholesterol lowering phytosterols.
