Topic: Essential elements for the fertility in ayurveda
Abstract: According to National Family Health Survey (NFHS) in India, the TFR (total fertility rate) decreased from 3.4 to 2.0 children between 1992- 93 and 2019- 21. In Ayurveda, Sushruta has given four essential elements (Garbha Sambhava Samagri) for the formation of Garbha as Ritu (the ideal ovulatory period), Kshetra (the female reproductive system), Ambu (the nutritive fluids) and Beeja (ovum). Similarly, a healthy physiological status, normal functioning of Vata and Shadbhava (Matrija, Pitraja, Atmaja, Satmyaja, Rasaja, Satvaja) are also responsible. Any abnormality in above these factors causes infertility.
