Abstract

CLINICAL STUDY TO EVALUATE THE EFFICACY OF VIJAYADI VATI IN KASHTARTAVA W.S.R. TO PRIMARY DYSMENORRHOEA

Shajabee*

Abstract

Kashtartava i.e. Pain during menstruation, is a common gynaecological condition, causes absenteism from workplace, school etc. It has substantial effect on the quality of life & general health. Menstruation is a normal physiological process, when it is accompanied with pain, is called Dysmenorrhoea. In Ayurvedic text, various conditions are described in which menstruation occurs with pain .In this especially there is derangement of Apana and Vyana Vayu. In Bhaisajya Ratnavali, Vijayadi Vati is mentioned in context of Kashtartava. The contents (Vijaya, Kumari, Rakta Kamal, Apamarg) of vijayadi vati have Vatahara, Vedanasthapana Agnideepana and Shothahara property, hence the present study is taken to see the efficacy of Vijayadi Vati in Kashtaartava. In modern medicine dysmenorrhoea is treated by NSAIDs, OCPs, antispasmodic, analgesics etc. Long term use of these causes side effects. It is a great scope of research to find out safe, potent, cost effective remedy from Ayurveda. This research work is a single blind control clinical study. The selected single group of 30 patients were administered Vijayadi Vati orally 1BD (250mg each) starting from 7 days before menstruation and during menstruation for 3 months and follow up for next 2 months after treatment. The effect of Vijayadi Vati in the management of Kashtartava was statistically highly significant. The overall effect of treatment on Kashtartava stands out as we observed 15 patients (50%) had >75% marked relief, 4 patients (36.66%) had moderate improvement, 3 patients (10%) had mild improvement and only 1 patient (3.33%) were having no improvement.

Keywords: Kashtaartava, VijayadiVati, Pain, Dysmenorrhea.
