Women’s Infertility – An Ayurvedic Perspective By: Sirisha Karamchedu


   I humbly seek this opportunity to bow to the almighty for offering his divine guidance, illuminating my path every step of the way and empowering me to this journey of Ayurveda.
   Many thanks to Dr. Marc Halpern, who has put together such an amazing course of Ayurvedic study. I would like to offer my sincere thanks to my teachers at the California College of Ayurveda, who have inspired me every step of the way. 
   I am very thankful to Dr. Marisa Jackson-Kinman for her kind timely suggestions and guiding my life.  The truth dawns on me that words suffer stringent limitation. I have not been able to find words enough to express my love, respect and gratitude for her.
   I would like to offer my thanks to my wonderful class-mates at CCA, my husband and friends who have encouraged me along the way and offered me their unconditional support.  I am thankful to all those beautiful souls that have helped me directly or indirectly in this journey.


Infertility is the failure to naturally conceive a child even after one or more years of regular unprotected coitus or to carry a pregnancy to full term. Reasons such as weight, diet, smoking, other substance abuse, environmental pollutants, infections, medical conditions, medications and family medical history could affect conception in couples. Infertility can arise from either of the partners. In men, infertility is usually because of low numbers or poor quality of sperm and occurs in a woman when she does not produce eggs regularly or because her fallopian tubes are damaged or blocked and the sperm cannot reach her eggs. The current research paper focuses on infertility in women and presents infertility from the lens of Ayurveda.
