Lifestyle changes, such as losing weight or cutting back on alcohol use, can help treat ovulation problems. Other alternative treatments haven't been shown to be effective. Homeopathic and herbal treatments, such as cat's claw, chasteberry, or lady's mantle, haven't been shown to help and may be harmful. Herbal remedies may also interact badly with other medications you take or make an existing condition worse. If you're pregnant, even if you don't know it yet, herbal remedies may be harmful. Acupuncture is sometimes recommended as an alternative treatment for infertility. No scientific evidence shows it works.
