ABSTRACT

Reproductive toxicity is the effect of chemicals on the reproductive system and on neuroendocrine system. As the days are passing lots of chemicals are interacted with the population. Such toxins have hazardous effect over human health. So one of the effect is on the reproductive system. Such toxins interfere in some way with normal reproduction. We call such chemicals as Reprotoxic. They have adverse effects over sexual function and fertility in adult males and females. It not only cause effects on reproductive system but also has effect on developmental toxicity in the offspring. In this new era infertility is the most common problem. Some studies also told this environmental toxins as endocrine disruptors that feminize the male animals and androgenize the female animals. Until now we assume and find the infertility causes in women and not in the men. Exposures to such chemicals have hazardous effects over Male and Female Reproductive system.[1] Toxicants that target the Male Reproductive System not only affect the sperm count but also change in shape of sperm, alter sexual behavior and also increase infertility. Many organic chlorine compounds like DDT, PCB have significant effect on fertility. Even many medicines just like Thalidomide, Diethyl stilbesterol have effects over the embryo development. According to ayurveda such toxins gets accumulated inside the body and gets converted into Dushivisha. While explaining about Dushivisha, Acharya Sushruta has mentioned destruction of sperm. While explaining about the Upadravas of Dushivisha Acharya Sushruta have mentioned decrease in sperm quantity.[2]
