Ayurvedic Infertility Treatment for Male and Female

Dr.Vishnu B.A.M.S

infertility is indeed a medical condition that affects the reproductive system, and it is typically diagnosed when a couple is unable to achieve pregnancy after a year of regular, unprotected intercourse. Infertility can affect both men and women, and various factors contribute to fertility issues.

Common causes of infertility include:

  • Ovulatory disorders: Problems with ovulation can prevent the release of eggs from the ovaries, making conception difficult.
  • Male factor infertility: Issues with sperm production, quality, or delivery can contribute to male infertility.
  • Tubal factors: Blockages or damage to the fallopian tubes can impede the movement of eggs from the ovaries to the uterus.
  • Uterine or cervical abnormalities: Structural problems in the uterus or cervix can affect implantation or hinder sperm from reaching the egg.
  • Age-related factors: Both male and female fertility decline with age, with women experiencing a more significant decline in fertility after the age of 35.
  • Endocrine disorders: Conditions affecting hormonal balance, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or thyroid disorders, can impact fertility.
  • Lifestyle factors: Smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, obesity, and poor nutrition can contribute to infertility.
  • Unexplained infertility: In some cases, the cause of infertility remains unidentified despite thorough testing.

                         In Ayurveda, the concept of “shukra dhatu” refers to reproductive tissue, with infertility linked to imbalances. Root causes include accumulated toxins (ama), poor nutrition, sluggish digestion (mandagni), nervous system imbalances, stress, reproductive organ diseases, and disruptions in natural biological rhythms and hormones. Ayurveda promotes a holistic approach, addressing lifestyle, diet, and mental well-being to restore balance in the body and support reproductive health.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Infertility

In Ayurveda, the formation of toxins (ama) due to poor digestion (agni imbalance) can lead to various diseases. Treating ama should always involve addressing agni by using digestive Ayurvedic formulations, maintaining a proper meal schedule, and following a healthy routine. Panchakarma treatments in Ayurveda help eliminate ama, correcting agni, and contributing to healthy ojus (vitality).

Infertility in Ayurveda is often linked to the vata dosha. Therefore, correcting vata functions (vatanulomana) is crucial in infertility treatment. This involves using Ayurvedic formulations, following exercise routines, and sticking to a disciplined diet schedule.

Sodhana, a detoxification process, is conducted after suitable sneha swedas (oleation therapies). Techniques like vamana (emesis), virechana (purgation), vasti (medicated enema), and uttaravasti (special enema) are employed based on the patient’s condition. Following the detoxification, patients need to adhere to a specific diet. These therapies help expel toxins, addressing ovarian, tubular, and uterine issues causing infertility. Ayurvedic treatments release tension, remove impurities, nourish the body, revitalize the mind, and strengthen the immune system. They are beneficial for reducing stress, nourishing all bodily tissues, and pacifying vata.

Diet and Lifestyle Changes to Cure Infertility


Protein Sources:

  • Get protein from both meat and vegetables. However, avoid excessive animal protein as it may increase the risk of infertility.

Soy for Female Fertility:

  • Incorporate soy into your diet to support female fertility. Note that men should steer clear of soy as it can lower sperm count.

Increase Fiber Intake:

  • Eat more fiber-rich foods to support overall health.

Dark Leafy Greens:

  • Include dark leafy greens in your diet to enhance ovulation and support the production of healthy sperm.

Beans for Boosting Fertility:

  • Add beans to your meals as they are known to boost fertility.

Walnuts for Male Fertility:

  • Improve male fertility by including walnuts in the diet.

Avoid Trans Fats:

  • Stay away from trans fats, as they are linked to a higher risk of infertility.

Minimize Processed Foods:

  • Cut down on highly processed foods and hydrogenated oils for better fertility.

Reduce Carbs and Sugar:

  • Limit carbohydrates and sugar intake. Opt for complex carbs to stabilize blood sugar levels, as high levels have been linked to reduced conception.

 Lifestyle Changes

Quit Smoking:

  • Smoking lowers sperm count in men.
  • Smoking ages ovaries and depletes eggs prematurely.

Cut Back on Alcohol:

  • Frequent alcohol consumption can lower sperm count and testosterone levels in men.
  • Excessive alcohol can lead to erectile dysfunction.
  • Heavy drinking increases the risk of ovulation disorders.

Avoid Drugs and Certain Medications:

  • Illegal drugs like marijuana and cocaine can reduce sperm quality and quantity.
  • Some medications may interfere with sperm production

Moderate Exercise:

  •  Too much vigorous physical activity can hinder ovulation and reduce progesterone production.

Keep Cool:

  • High temperatures, especially near the scrotum, can slow down sperm production.

Manage Stress:

  • Stress can impact fertility, so explore relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation, and deep breathing.
  • Mind-body therapies and massage can also be beneficial in reducing stress levels.

Understand Fertility Cycle:

  • Enhance your chances of conception by understanding your fertility cycle.
  • Timing intercourse based on your fertility cycle can improve the likelihood of getting pregnant.


  • Avoid water-based lubricants with spermicides, as they can hinder sperm motility.
  • Choose sperm-friendly lubricants that do not negatively affect sperm movement.
