Male Infertility

Causes of Male Infertility

Causes of male infertility include abnormal sperm production or function and/or impaired delivery of sperm. General health and lifestyle issues such like, excessive smoking, alcohol intake, degrading environment, high pollution levels, changes in food habits, and deskbound work, stress etc. and exposure to certain environmental factors like exposure to radiation are some key factors that affect male fertility negatively.

Vajikarana chikitsa

Ayurveda realized the problem of male sexual dysfunction thousands of years ago and developed a separate specialty, namely, Vajikarana-chikitsa (Aphrodisiac therapy). It has also recommended an appropriate use of plant-based remedies, a proper lifestyle and nutritious diet for improving overall health and treating male infertility. In the classics of Ayurveda the following karma (procedures) has also been mentioned for treatment of infertility as seen in table below.


Purva Karma (Preliminary treatment) Pradhana Karma
(Main treatment)
Paschat Karma
(Post procedure)
Snehana (Oleationa) and Swedana (Sudation) Virechana (Purgation) and Vasthi (Medicated enema) Vajikarana (Specific management with Vajikarana herbs and medicines)

Herbs used for vajikarana purpose are as follows

  • Kapikacchu (Mucuna Pruriens Bak.), which has been found to increase sperm concentration and motility.

  • Gokshura (Tribulus terrestris Linn.), which raises testosterone levels.

  • Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera Dunal.), which enhances spermatogenesis via a presumed testosterone-like effect.

  • Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus Willd.), which enhances fertility by reducing oxidative stress.

  • Yashtimadhu (Glycyrrhiza glabra Linn.), which improves semen quality.

Ayurvedic medicines

Shilajit rasayan, Agnitundi Vati, Ashwagandhadi lehyam, Ashwagandhai ghrita, Satavari lehya, Chayavanaprash, Dasamoolaristam, Draksharistam, Ashwagandharistam, Chandra prabha vati, etc are used for male infertility.
