Abstract

Pregnant women commonly develop increased vaginal discharge, which in many instances is not pathological. Pregnancy is associated with specific anatomical, physiological and immunological changes that can predispose to infection and also alter the response to the disease process. Infections in pregnancy demands prompt  adequate and  careful  management. Vulvovaginitis during pregnancy may be considered under the umbrella of Upapluta Yonivyapad. Pregnant women are more prone to vulvovaginitis which is a great challenge for obstetricians today. In Ayurveda, Upapluta Yonivyapad  described by Acharaya Charaka, Sharangadhara and both Vagbhata can be compared to vulvovaginitis during pregnancy. Here Panchawalkala Kwatha Prakshalna followed by Jatyadi Taila Pichu externally and Tab Leukol internally has been used to correct Garbhini Upapluta.
