Female Infertility and Its Ayurvedic Treatment

Female Infertility and Its Ayurvedic Treatment

The World Health Organization (WHO) calls infertility “a disease of the reproductive system defined by the failure to achieve a clinical pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse.”
Infertility can occur in both women and men. Primary infertility is infertility in a couple who have never had a child, while secondary infertility is failure to conceive following a previous pregnancy. A woman who doesn’t conceive and/or is unable to carry a full-term pregnancy is labeled as infertile.

Causes of infertility in women

Infertility in women is caused by many factors like infections and ageing amongst others like the following:

  1. High FSH - Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) is a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland in the body. It stimulates follicle growth in the ovary and causes the eggs to mature for fertilization. FSH levels increase with age and high FSH levels in blood can mean that the ovaries are not functioning too well and hence it can be a likely reason for infertility.
  2. Blocked fallopian tubes - Blocked fallopian tubes or ‘fallopian tube obstruction’ is the biggest reason for infertility in women. We all know that fertilization happens inside the fallopian tubes, so an obstruction here means an absence of fertilization and pregnancy.
  3. Endometriosis - Women with endometriosis experience a drop in fertility by almost 12-35%. It is a condition where the lining of the uterus starts growing, not in the uterus, but elsewhere in the abdomen i.e. ovaries, fallopian tube and the pelvic area.
  4. Fibroids- These are non-cancerous tumours inside or around the uterus.
  5. Age- The biggest reason for infertility in women is their age. If a woman’s age is 35 plus, her ovaries do not function properly and release less eggs, which are not very healthy.
  6. Hormonal imbalance - These cause ovulatory malfunctions and poor egg development.
  7. Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) - PCOS is a type of hormonal imbalance, which leads to production of excessive male hormones in a woman’s body, thereby causing infertility.

Can Ayurveda boost fertility in women?

According to Ayurveda, infertility arises when ‘shukra dhatu’, which produces eggs in women and sperms in men, is weak due to lack of proper nutrition. This could be due to poor digestion or an absence of a balanced diet or due to the presence of ‘ama’ or toxins in the body.

According to Ayurveda, sexual indulgence and promiscuity can also cause infertility due to the decrease in ‘shukra dhatu’.

Ayurvedic fertility enhancers for women

  1. Ashoka – It stimulates the endometrium found in the uterus and ovaries and aids in ovulation.
  2. Lodhra – It cures all female disorders that stop conception and regulates levels of reproductive hormones like FSH and LH, which are essential for conception.
  3. Shatavari – It nourishes the ovum or egg and enhances fertility as it contains estrogen-like compounds.
  4. Gokshura – This herb is helpful for both men and women. It works as a fertility tonic in women by stimulating the ovaries and thus cures PCOS, a leading cause of female infertility.

Ayurveda also recommends a diet rich in food items like ghee, milk, almonds, walnuts, sesame and pumpkin seeds to improve overall health and thus enhance levels of ‘shukra dhatu’ in the body. Since ‘vata’ dosha is closely associated with the reproductive system in women, Ayurveda also assigns a lot of value to its regulation for proper ovulation and stress control. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Mr. Lybrate-user, pickles contain a lot of salt, which is basically unhealthy. These are taken to enhance the taste of food, but they are definitely not good. Especially in a person with raised blood pressure pickles are a taboo. For others too a little bit occasionally may be used. Ther is no health benefit from them.

Pre diabetes person can drink coconut water and which type of fruits he can eat pls suggest.
Dear lybrate-user all fresh fruits can be eaten in Diabetes as long as one is not allergic to it kindly avoid processed fruits and fruit juices as it contains sugar. Fruits with low glycemic index are preferred. Eg apples. Banana, kiwi, grapes, orange, pineapple dried fruits generally have high glycemic index. If needed you can call me any day. Regards.

it condition of menopause stage...you can continue your tab. sevista..or you can remove it by surgery. for thyroid take life time medicines of thyroid. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid alcohl if you take.

I am suffering from type ii diabetes. I walk for half an hour everyday. Is it enough or should I undertake some more exercises like yoga, etc.

Lybrate-user, half an hour walking is bare minimum, that is required. However, if you can do exercise for 1 hour a day, that will benefit in achieving better control of blood glucose. Simple brisk walking is as good as any other exercise. If want to start yogic asanas, that is good, but in addition to walking. Plus maintain a strict dietary control. Thanks.

. I have thyroid problem. Daily I used thyroid tablets of 50 mcg. Now it is in normal stage. Sir I have one doubt please clarify that. Some people told to me that thyroid people won't get pregnancy. Is it right?

Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is well controlled then there is no problem with becoming pregnant. For priper control tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units / l. For pregnancy to occur and have a healthy baby throughout pregnancy tsh should be around 2 milli units / l.

I am a 47 years old and have thyroid. I have bags under my eyes and also what looks like cholesterol deposits under my eye - is this a cholesterol issue , a derma issue or a endocrinology issue ? How do I deal with it.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, Diploma in Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics, Cetificate Course In Thyroid Disorders Management (CCMTD)
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Lybrate-user, by saying" I have thyroid" are you referring to hypothyroidism? if so then, in case of uncontrolled hypothyroidism there may be a swelling of the face and lower eyelids and legs and feet. If in good control then tsh values are between 3 to 4 milli units/l. As regards some deposits under the eye, cholesterol is not seen any where in the body like that. It can only be detected by measuring lipid levels of the blood. Your problem may be something else. You may talk to your local doctor and then decide whom to consult. Your bmi is 25 kgs/m2, which shows being over weight, so regular exercise and diet control are required. Thanks.

Hi  First: medicines are mandatory.  Otherwise ypu might have weight gain, muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as gynaecological and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH  If ypu have already done these tests Share on Lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio, weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs.  Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements.  Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption.  Thyroid function tests should be done every 6 weeks initially till its normal. Then every 3 months. The dose is adjustable according to bodyweight symptoms. Other tests which should be done CBC WITH ESR USG NECK LFT LIPID PROFILE PPBS Hope this helps Let me know.  Take care
