The menstrual disorders have become a very common but challenging problem. They may be due to the structural or functional disturbances and these disorders are mostly associated with the complaint of sterility, obesity etc. The physician or modern medicine prescribes the drugs according to the condition of the disease. The treatment and investigation are the same for the primary and secondary amenorrhea i.e. hormonal and symptomatic treatment. In physiological condition in absence of any complications of the disease, they do not prescribe any drugs. In Ayurvedic literature, numbers of formulations are available for Artavakshaya. While describing the Artava Dushti Chikitsa, Acharya Sushruta has clearly mentioned the Uttarbasti therapy as the prime treatment. In Yoga Ratnakar Yonivyapada Chikitsa, Krishna Tila Kwatha is mentioned for the treatment of Artavakshaya. This brings out the importance of the role of Krishna Tila Kwatha and Guduchyadi Taila Uttarbasti as per mentioned in Charaka Samhita Chikitsa Sthana 30 in the management of Artavakshaya. In this present clinical study, total numbers of 33 patients of Artavakshaya Roga from OPD & IPD of I.P.G.T. & R.A., Jamnagar were registered and divided in two groups randomly. In Group A patients were treated with Krishna Tila Kwatha and in Group B patients were treated with Uttarbasti of Guduchyati. The Krishna Tila Kwatha in 10 gm b.i.d. dose, in the form of Kwatha (liquid) with Prakeshpa of Guda (Jaggery), for duration of two months were advised and The Uttarbasti of Guduchyadi Taila in 5 cc after completion of the menses for 3 consecutive days for 2 cycles were advised and the effect on the signs and symptoms were assessed before and after treatment noted and also assessed by a specially prepared proforma.
