In brief: Qualified NO
Herbal medications have a place but they do no have to be studied and proven effective like prescribed drugs.
We do not fully understand what they do as research is lacking. Some of my patients see acupuncturists and naturopathic providers and i allow them to prescribe herbs but usually we stay away from herbs during ivf for example where the costs of failure is high.

While herbal medications may help optimize fertility, the lack of controlled studies suggests that you may be gambling a lot time and and money.

In brief: Depends
Herbal medicines are helpful and work usually slower than man-made meds.
The usefulness depends upon the cause of the infertility. Herbals are helpful in abnormal ovulation and thyroid abnormalities, but not as much for endometriosis and scarring. Make sure your herbal medicine doctor is well trained.
