Abstract

A couple is considered as infertile, when they failed to have baby in one year of their marriage life, without using any of the birth control methods.[1] To conceive a child, women’s egg must be combined by men’s sperm, thus it will be get fertilized. A hormonal imbalance, varicocele, blockage of sperm movement, environmental factors, diet, age, bad habits etc will affect the fertility in men. Studies suggest that after 1 year of having unprotected sex, 15% of couples are unable to conceive. Asthenoazoospermia is a condition, where it compromises the men’s fertility by preventing the sperm from reaching and fertilizing the egg. In Ayurveda, diseases of Shukra are considered under Shukra Doshas. Ayurveda is best choice of treatment in the treatment of men’s infertility. A 35 year old, men visited OPD of Panchakarma with complaint of unable to conceive with marriage history of 5 years. Semen analysis revealed that, he has reduced motility of sperms. This patient was managed with Virechana Karma and Shamana treatment for 3 months. Later after 3 months, motility in the sperms got improved.  This case study reveals the importance Shodhana and Shamana in the management of Ksheenashukra w.r.t Asthenozoospermia.
