Ayurvedic Treatment – Infertility

Ayurvedic Treatment – Infertility

The inability of a person to naturally reproduce or contribute to conception is called infertility. Its occurrence is equally common in men as well as women. Women’s inability to carry a healthy full term pregnancy is one of the reproductive problems related to infertility.

Causes

Infertility in women may persist due to structural problems that pre-exist. These may be related to blocked fallopian tubes, ovulation problems due to hormonal imbalance, defects in cervical canal, uterine fibroids or polyps. Male infertility is associated with anatomical, psychological and hormonal causes. In some cases, actual cause of infertility may not be determined using the currently available methods.

Symptoms

  • Failure to conceive
  • Abnormal or no periods
  • Change in sex drive
  • Skin changes
  • Hair loss weight gain
  • In men – swelling in private parts, ejaculation problems

Ayurvedic View

According to Ayurveda, a healthy pregnancy depends upon health of parents. The essential factors include sperm, uterus health and time of conception. The body’s shukra dhatu can get affected by physical and psychological factors causing conception issues.
