Topic: Role of Rajaswala-charya (Menstrual Regimen) in Unexplained female Infertility
Abstract: Ayurveda is the mother science of all other medical sciences. Ayurveda opened a door that medical education ignored, how to preserve and promote health through different ways like dincharya, ratrichrya, ritucharya, sadvrita etc. Acharyas mention special charyas/regimen for maintaining the woman health like rajaswala-charya, garbhini charya, soothika charya etc. The code of conduct during menstruation is termed as rajaswala charya and is the most neglected charya in today’s lifestyle. Rajaswala- charya helps women to cope up with her physiological and psychological changes during this period. Ayurveda clearly mentions the relevance of practicing Rajaswala-charya and how it helps to keep a woman and her future conception healthy. By the concept of four fertility factors (ritu, kshetra, ambu, beeja) in the formation of garbha, it is very clear that healthy progeny begins at the very level of pre-conceptional care in the form of rajaswala-charya. The more likely causes of unexplained female infertility involve ovulation problems, Poor egg quality, problems with pelvic health, where the role of rajaswala-charya plays an important role.
