ABSTRACT

With a prevalence incidence of 8 % to 37%, unexplained infertility (Uqr) is by definition empiric because it does not address a particular defect or functional deficits. Couples with unexplained infertility have a higher than zero chance of becoming pregnant without treatment, but it is less likely than couples who are fertile. The ingredients in the Unani formulation, are baikh asgand (Withania somnifera Dunal), baikh piyabansa (Barleria prionitis Linn), gule dhawa (Anogeissus latifolia), and gule nilofar (Nymphaea alba Linn), were used to treat unexplained secondary infertility, possess the characteristics of muqawwi bah (Aphrodisiac), muqawwi Rahim (Uterotonic), muwallid-i-mani (ovulation-inducing), and mughalliz-i-mani (an agent which increases the viscosity of semen) beginning from the fifth day of the last menstrual cycle for five days with milk. The first cycle of treatment led to the conception of the women.
