Abstract

DYSMENORRHOEA (KASHTARTAVA) - A CONCEPTUAL STUDY

Bhagyashri Mahavir Khot*, Usha Rupaji Wartha and Veena Ajay Patil

Abstract

Women health is having primary importance for the wellbeing of the family and society. Any physical & psychological disturbance due to today’s stressful life affects their reproductive life. Menstruation is one of the physiological process seen in the reproductive life of women. Today’s life of women is so complex, competitive, ambitious and fast. Such lifestyle results into mithya aahara, vihara, over exertion which leads into various vyadhi allied to menstruation. Dysmenorrhoea is a medical condition of painful menstruation which affects women day to day activities. In many countries, primary dysmenorrhoea is the leading cause of recurrent short term school & work absenteeism in young girls and women. It is also leading to reduced physical activity, loss of concentration and poor social relationship ultimately disturbing the life of girls and women. In Ayurveda classics kashtartava is not described as a separate entity but described as a symptom of various yonivyapadas. Generally analgesics, NSAIDs, antispasmodic, antiinflammatory drugs are used to treat dysmenorrhoea. Oral contraceptives also help to reduce the severity of the symptoms. Ayurveda advised dincharya, diet modulations, yoga which includes asanas, pranayama on a regular basis to reduce the symptoms of dysmenorrhoea. Similarly aushadhi siddha anuvasana basti, uttarbasti, utkarika dharan etc. must be given. Also Ayurvedic formulations should be used.

Keywords: Menstruation, Dysmenorrhoea, Kashtartava, Ayurveda.
