Gynecological Disorders

Stri Vyadhi

In Ayurveda, gynecological disorders are understood within the framework of dosha imbalances, individual constitution (Prakriti), and the cyclical nature of a woman’s reproductive life. Ayurveda recognizes the influence of the three doshas—Vata, Pitta, and Kapha—on women’s health, particularly in relation to the menstrual cycle, fertility, and overall well-being. Gynecological disorders are seen as disruptions in the balance of these doshas, affecting the reproductive organs and hormonal equilibrium.

Introduction to Gynecological Disorders

1. Menstrual Health:

– Ayurveda places significant emphasis on the regularity and health of the menstrual cycle. Irregularities, pain, or excessive bleeding are often attributed to dosha imbalances.

2. Dosha Imbalances:

– Different gynecological disorders may arise from imbalances in specific doshas:
– Vata Imbalance: Associated with conditions like irregular menstruation, scanty flow, or conditions causing dryness.
– Pitta Imbalance: May manifest as heavy bleeding, inflammation, or conditions causing excess heat in the reproductive organs.
– Kapha Imbalance: Linked to disorders involving excess mucus, congestion, or conditions causing dampness.

3. Artava Kshaya and Artava Vriddhi:

– Artava in Ayurveda refers to the menstrual flow. Artava Kshaya denotes reduced menstrual flow, while Artava Vriddhi indicates excessive or prolonged bleeding.

4. Yoni Roga (Reproductive Disorders):

– Encompasses a range of gynecological issues, including infections, inflammation, and structural abnormalities in the reproductive organs.

5. Artava Dushti (Menstrual Irregularities):

– Refers to deviations from a normal menstrual cycle and includes conditions such as oligomenorrhea (infrequent menstruation) or amenorrhea (absence of menstruation).

6. Vandhyatva (Infertility):

– Ayurveda addresses infertility by identifying underlying dosha imbalances, optimizing reproductive health, and promoting overall well-being.
