I want to take black seed (Nigella sativa) daily for health purposes. But it is known to prevent pregnancy. Is it true? I am trying to conceive.

I want to take black seed (Nigella sativa) daily for health purposes. But it is known to prevent pregnancy. Is it true? I am trying to conceive.

May boost fertility: I have found no evidence at all that Black Cumin seeds prevent pregnancy, in fact I have found many claims that it has been proven to improve fertility. One study I found shows it increases sperm production in rats but another showed it decreased sperm production in rats, so your partner should use it with caution. There is no reason for you to avoid it if you are trying to conceive. ...Read more

Doctor can evaluate: The medicine is by prescription, so a woman goes to her ob-gyn to be evaluated for it. Whether or not medicine can be used also depends on the age of the baby fetus (the number of weeks pregnant). The doctor will talk with the patient to be sure that the patient is making a good permanent decision, because aborting a baby fetus is a hard decision for any woman to make. ...Read more

Is it okay to take dmae to help concentrate? Would it be bad? & how many mg do you have to take?

Not really known: Dmae or dimethylethanolamine products are not medications approved by the fda. That means dmae products are probably not tested for interactions and side effects like real medicines are. So, nobody really knows what desired effects or what side effects can happen. If a dmae user hears of some interaction or thinks he is getting a side effect, he can visit his primary care doctor. ...Read more
