Keywords:PCOD, Polycystic Ovarian Disease, Infertility, Ayurveda for Infertility
A 29-year-old Indian woman who is a housewife and has PCOD as her primary cause of secondary infertility from 5 years, has also complained of irregular menstruation cycles and occasional constipation over the same time period. Her ongoing hormonal treatment had included investigative procedures including diagnostic laparoscopy, USG, and HSG, all of which had yielded negative results, and she had ultimately been recommended for IVF. Due to her ongoing hormone treatment, she had to deal with side effects like weight, hirsutism, stress, discomfort, and more. Her prolonged hormonal treatment had resulted in adverse effects like weight, hirsutism, stress, discomfort, etc. According to Ayurveda, PCOD symptoms point to the involvement of Kapha and Vata dushti, which leads to avarodha in Artavavaha srotasa. Virechana is advised in the classical texts of Ayurveda for Yonidosha (gynaecological diseases), while Erandamooladi basti is recommended for balancing Vata dosha. It was successfully treated by Ayurvedic management with Virechana and Basti from Shodhana chikitsa (total 18 days) and Shamana chikitsa (total 21 days), which has produced positive outcomes.
