Bandhyatva is a commonly increasing problem which any gynecologist has to face throughout his/her gynecological career. It affects the mental & physical health of a woman and disturbs her family as well as social life. In most of the Asian countries, it is treated as a stigma. Ovulatory factor is responsible for 30-40% cases of infertility. There are several ovarian factors responsible for this. Unruptured follicle is one of them. Here the follicle grows and matures up to a certain size, but doesn't rupture or if ruptures, not at the proper time. Thus, anovulation or improper ovulation takes place. In modern medical science, Inj. HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is used to ovulate the mature follicle. In Ayurveda, there is no evidence of any database medicine for this purpose. So, an effort was made to find out some safer and cheaper Ayurvedic alternative of Inj. HCG to rupture the grown follicle at the required time. Chitrakadi Vati was selected for this purpose for its Agnidipaka and Pachaka properties, considering the ovulation, a result of physiological action of Agni. The study was carried out in 25 patients. Chitrakadi vati (500mg) 2 tabs t.i.d. from the day of matured follicle in at-least one ovary was administered in such patients till ovulation occurred. The maximum duration was 3 days. Ovulation study with USG was carried out from the 9th day of menstrual cycle till ovulation takes place. Highly significant results were found and considering the other effects of HCG and Chitrakadi Vati, it was proved as a better alternative of HCG to rupture the follicle. It also proved its efficacy for the purpose of Intra uterine insemination, when rupture of follicle is needed within certain required time limit.
