Infertility primarily refers to the biological inability of a man or a woman to contribute to . Infertility may also refer to the state of a woman who is unable to carry a pregnancy to full term. There are many biological causes of infertility, some which may be bypassed with medical intervention.

Reproductive endocrinologists, the doctors specializing in infertility, consider a couple to be infertile if:

  • the couple has not conceived after 12 months of contraceptive-free intercourse if the female is under the age of 34
  • the couple has not conceived after 6 months of contraceptive-free intercourse if the female is over the age of 35 (declining egg quality of females over the age of 35 account for the age-based discrepancy as when to seek medical intervention)
  • the female is incapable of carrying a pregnancy to term.
There are two types of infertility in general, Primary and Secondary. Coup
les who have never been able to conceive is known as Primary infertility, but the copules who have conceived once and carried a full term pregnancy, but face difficulty in conceiving for the next time is know as Secondary Infertility.
In some cases, both the man and woman may be infertile or sub-fertile, and the couple's infertility arises from the combination of these conditions. In other cases, the cause is suspected to be immunological or genetic; it may be that each partner is independently fertile but the couple cannot conceive together without assistance.
In about 15% of cases the infertility investigation will show no abnormalities. In these cases abnormalities are likely to be present but not detected by current methods. Possible problems could be that the egg is not released at the optimum time for fertilization, so it may not enter the fallopian tube, sperm may not be able to reach the egg, fertilization may fail to occur, transport of the zygote may be disturbed, or implantation fails. It is increasingly recognized that egg quality is of critical importance and women of advanced maternal age have eggs of reduced capacity for normal and successful fertilization.
Infertility: An Ayurvedic View
Ayurveda is a science of wellness. Ayurveda not only aims about the absence of the diseases and sign and symptoms but also aims at the general health and wellness of one in all spheres. Infertility is not less than a psychological trauma to a couple. Every lady wants to be mother and every man wants to be responsible as a father. When it doesn't happen it is not less than a trauma for anyone. When expectations are not achieved by any reason, obviously it hurts!!
Ayurveda has developed a special branch to deal with such problems, known as Vajikarana. Vajikarana, means to make one potent like a Vaji- A Horse!! Every ancient science of the world used horses as symbol of the reproductive powers. Some "QUACKS" who are not well known to the real Ayurveda, tells that Vajikarana is a part of Ayurveda aimed to increase the sexual powers only, which is never right.
According to Ayurveda, conception takes place due to healthy sperm, healthy ovum, and a healthy uterus. For both men and women, reproductive health depends on the health of the Shukra Dhatu, or reproductive tissue. In women the Shukra tissue produces the ovum as part of the monthly cycle, and in men the semen is formed due to sexual stimulation.
The Shukra Dhatu itself is created as part of a long chain of metabolic transformations, starting with the digestion of food and including the transformation of food to nutrient fluid, blood, muscle, fat, bone, bone marrow and finally, to Shukra tissue. (These are detailed under the icon Basic Principles of Ayurveda as Nutritive Levels of the body.) Healthy Shukra Dhatu, then, according to Ayurveda, depends on the health of all the other tissues in the body.
Causes of Infertility According to Ayurveda
  • Problems with infertility can arise when nutrition does not reach the reproductive tissue; this can happen due to under nutrition, poor digestion or obstruction due to toxins.
  • Having sex by compulsion with a person whom you do not like.
  • Mental disturbance- diseases like anxiety, depression and insomnia.
  • To not to control the sexual excitement, and to do the wrong jobs to satisfy oneself.
  • Eating spicy, salty and hot food increase Pitta and destroys weakens and restricts the formation of Shukra Dhatu.
  • Overindulgence in sexual activities leads to Shukra Kshaya. It may lead to Klebya (impotency).
  • By controlling sexual urges for longer duration leads to Veeryaavarodha (Obstruction of semen) and this leads to decreased libido.
  • Infertility can also arise when the reproductive tissue is damaged by infection or trauma.
  • Some acquire the impotency by birth- the well known genetic causes.
