In modern medical science, diagnosis and treatment are based on a direct vision which is made by a number of diagnostic tests. When infertility evaluation failed to detect any cause of infertility, it is called “Unexplained Infertility.” Intra-uterine insemination (IUI) is a basic treatment option in such unexplained cases. In Ayurvedic classics, Ritu (~menstruation), Kshetra (~uterus), Ambu (~nutrition), and Beeja (~ovum and/or sperm) are described as essential factors for conception. Adequate physiological functioning of these factors is also necessary with the absence of causative factors to achieve conception. Along with that normal psychology is also described as an important aspect for conception. A 35-year-old female presented to Stree Roga Evum Prasuti Tantra OPD, on December 2019 with chief complaints of long-standing unexplained infertility. The patient was advised IUI along with Ayurvedic management. Vata is a principle Dosha in Vandhyatva (~infertility) and Mridu sanshodhana (~mild purification) described as a line of treatment to treat vitiated Vata dosha. Virechana is also maintained for “Agarbha” Stree (~infertile woman). Hence, the patient was treated with Nitya virechana (~daily therapeutic purgation) by Eranda sneha (~castor oil). Eranda sneha maintains Agni (~digestive power) and normalizes Vata dosha by Vata anulomana karma (~carminatives). It also affects the psychological status of the patient by Medhya (~intellect power) and Smritikara (~improving memory) properties. This concept was followed in this case to manage infertility. After the second cycle of IUI, urine pregnancy was achieved in April 2020, and delivered a healthy male baby in November 2020.
