A thin endometrium is generally defined as endometrial thickness less than 7 mm. This is a case report of a female patient with thin endometrium with a complaint of inability to conceive for 2 years of regular unprotected intercourse. The menstrual blood is the shedded functional layer of endometrium of the uterus. In Ayurveda, the term rajah is used for menstrual blood. So, this case is considered as Rajah-Kshay and is treated accordingly. The treatment plan includes Rasa & Rakta Pachak (Blood Purifiers) medications and Uttarbasti (Vaginal administration of liquid medicine) of Phalaghrita to increase Dharan kshamata (implantation) of endometrium. During the treatment period this patient’s endometrial thickness increased from 6.1 mm to 9 mm and menstrual flow increased. This led to her conception within 5 months of treatment and she delivered a healthy baby boy.
