The sequence of recurrent loss of pregnancies can be a distressing condition to motherhood. So, it is very important to overcome this devastating emotional fatigue. An Ayurvedic classic has given proper intervention of this condition where repeated abortion can be co-related to Putraghni Yoni Vyapat.
