The ability to conceive and procreate is a beautiful gift from God and comes with a natural, inborn instinct to continue the race. Parenthood is a natural culmination of marriage for (most) couples. The inability to conceive can come as a shock and cause severe distress to both men and women. In addition to multiple possible medical causes, increasingly busy and stressful lifestyles have contributed to increasing infertility levels in many young, married couples.
Men can have problems related to poor sperm count, poor sperm quality, and issues related to erection and ejaculation. Ayurvedic herbal medicines can be successfully used to treat these issues comprehensively. Herbal medicines have multiple advantages in these treatments since these are safe, effective, and improve sperm quality and quantity while also improving performance and mutual satisfaction. Associated medical issues like obesity, hypertension, and diabetes etcetera should be considered and taken care of. Side effects of ongoing medication should be considered. The couple should take out time from their hectic work schedules and learn to relax. They should be together during the most fertile period, about 10-20 days from the commencement of the last menstrual period, of the wife. This simple fact is often overlooked by even educated and well informed couples.
Infertility issues in women relate to causes such as hormonal imbalance, underdeveloped organs, ovulation failure, blockage due to growths (cysts or tumors) or inflammation, failure of conception due to sperm antibodies, or failure of implantation and embryonic growth due to infections. Barring a few exceptions which are amenable to surgical intervention, most such conditions can be safely and effectively treated with Ayurvedic herbal medicines. A detailed treatment description is out of scope of this article; however, the main principles of treatment include treating hormonal dysfunction, promoting a healthy growth of pelvic organs, regulating diet to prevent and treat chronic inflammation, maintaining a healthy environment in the intestines and uterus, using herbal medicines to treat inflammation and blockage, and inducing regular ovulation. Severe menstrual pain and chronic constipation also need to be treated aggressively, since these usually contribute to the infertility.
More than a third of affected women fail to conceive in spite of all relevant examinations and reports coming out normal. Ayurvedic treatment again has several advantages over other treatments in such a scenario, since the treatment is completely safe, can be given for long periods safely, and tends to help solve the issue without creating any new problem or side effects. Most women who take such treatment on a long term basis invariably conceive and go on to have a normal, full term pregnancy. Ayurvedic herbal treatment can be continued throughout the pregnancy in order to prevent complications both to the mother as well as the unborn child, as well as to achieve a safe and healthy offspring.
Ayurvedic herbal treatment can thus be utilized to successfully treat both male and female infertility. Treatment is both safe as well as highly economical. Detailed investigations help in determining the exact cause and providing specific and effective treatment.
