Ayurvedic Treatment

Female infertility and recurrent miscarriages with unknown origin can be treatable with Ashwagandha

There are several causes of infertility in women. Sometimes, everything is okay and all test reports are normal. In such cases, there is a possibility that egg released from the ovary may be incapable for fertilization or weakness of fallopian tubes to support fertilization or weakness of the uterine tissue especially endometrium (the mucous membranes of the uterus) to embed fertilized egg.

Frequent miscarriages are also occurring due to the weakness of the uterine layers to support a pregnancy. According to ayurveda, we should do strengthening treatment in this case and should use herbs, which particularly have strengthening effects on the uterus.

In all these cases, aggravated Vata and lack of strength of reproductive organs are the main causes of infertility. In such cases, Ashwagandha may help to support in fertilization, embedment of the fertilized egg in the uterus and sustain pregnancy in cases of frequent miscarriages.
