Introduction :

Though man and woman are same from the point of view of basic body elements i.e. Tridosha, Saptadhatu, Mala and both are responsible for conception, its only the female who is endowed with the ability to conveive and give rise to a whole new life in the form of newborn. Her reprodocutive cycle spans from Puberty to Menopause. During this span of her life, the most important event that occurs is conception for which perfect ovulation is essential.

There are millions of sperms found in just 1 ml. of semen while there is only one ovum which is released from either of the ovaries per month and that too only within the few 7-8 days of each month, known as the Ovulation period. Along with this natural limitation which comes in the way of conception, the improper Modern day lifestyle of irregular meals, shift duties at work, job-related stress, excessive & regular junk food consumption etc. contribute to PCOD which is a menstrual disorder disturbing the Ovulation process and proving to be one of the major causes of the female infertility found nowadays. Even if the quantum of ovum released from the ovary cannot be increased, its quality can be enhanced and Ovulation cycle can be corrected by Ayurvedic treatment.

How many females are affected by PCOD

In recent times, one sees a lots of problems arising in conception due to the ovum not getting liberated at appropriate stage and later on getting converted into a cyst. Modern science in the initial stage of its prevalence, called it PCOD while now it is known as PCOS, which according to the latest records found nearly in 40% of the women in their repdoductive age. But only 60% of them pay visit to the physicians for its treatment when they discover that they have PCOD while under going all the tests for their infertility.
