Immunological infertility is an autoimmune response associated with an imbalance of various immune components with the development of autoantibodies directed against normal host antigens. The similar characteristic features along with appropriate treatment has been described in the ancient science of Indian medicine. Ayurveda beautifully explains the concept of Vajikarana, which checks various aspects of reproductive health, particularly: foiling the damage owing to its antioxidant effect, and help detox, restore and regenerate healthy fertile cells.
