Topic: Ayurvedic Management of female infertility (Vandhyatva)
Abstract: Infertility is defines as a failure to achieve a clinical pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse. According to Ayurveda four essential factors for conception are Ritu (ovulation period/ Reproductive age), Kshetra (female genital tract), Ambu (nutrition status / hormones) and Bija(Healthy ovum and sperm).Any pathological conditions related to above factors can cause the female infertility. According to Acharya Charaka Matrija, Pitrija, Aatmaja, Satvaja, Satmyaja and Rasaja bhavas are also responsible for formation of Garbha (embryo). In Ayurveda, Shodhana (Panchakarma) and Shamana Chikitsa are indicated in management of female infertility.
