Evaluation of quality of ovulation is possible with the help of Trans Vaginal Color Doppler Sonography. In case of primary infertility if baseline sonography findings are normal, rest of the female factors for infertility and male factors of infertility are also normal, among this couple if female partner is subjected for daily based Yoga and Pranayam programme designed by qualified Yoga trainer at least for six month we can evaluate the quality of ovum and ovulation. During this programme, randomly selected female patients were subjected for Yoga and Pranayam (Group-I) and similar patients were not participated for Yoga and Pranayam (Group-II). The Trans Vaginal Color Doppler findings during ovulation were compared statistically between both the groups. Six months follow up result showed that pregnancy was positive for more number of patients performing Yoga without ovulation inducing drugs.
