Ayurvedic classics give importance to Shuddha Artava and mention that Artavadushti is one of the causative factors for infertility. Artavakshaya is not separately described as disease any where in Ayurvedic classics, of course, this doesn«SQ»t desecrate Artavakshaya. Because, Acharya Charaka has quoted in Charaka Nidana Sthana, first chapter, that symptoms of a disease themselves also constitute as a disease. But sometime, because of their subordinate nature they are only symptoms and not disease. This quotation substantiates the stand of taking «SQ»Artavakshaya«SQ» as disease in the present studies. There are many processes and methods available in Ayurvedic classics to alleviate Artavakshya. But it is yet, the on going research to find out a method of treatment, which is nearer to procurance of permanent cure without side effects. It is well known that Ayurvedic classics emphasize on both Shodhana and Shamana therapy. Since Vata plays key role in Yoniroga, Uttarbasti, being Vata shamana, is a specific treatment in diseased condition of Yoni. As Shamana therapy Kwatha preparation choose to evaluate its efficacy. In the present study total 37 patients were registered, out of them 6 patients were discontinued. One group of patients was administered Arkapushpa Taila Uttarbasti and Krishna Tila Kwatha simultaneously. It gave more significant result. Krishna Tila Kwatha was administered orally in other group. Placebo wheat powder was administered orally in third group. Uttarbasti and Kwatha were found highly effective when administered simultaneously.
