Menstruation is a normal physiological process. Accompanied with intolerable pain, it is called as Dysmenorrhea. Dysmenorrhea is one of the most common disorders which suffer 60% of women between 15-45 ages. It causes severe pain & discomfort in everyday activities for several days each month. Uses of modern medicines like anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic drug, hormonal therapy are still unsatisfactory in giving relief and may cause unwanted effects.
Ayurvedic classics defined Udavarta Yoni vyapat; here the menstruation is accompanied with severe pain. It disappears on beginning of menstruation. According to Ayurveda menstruation is controlled & governed by Apan vayu. Due to movement of Apan vayu in opposite direction or disturbance obstruction in the flow of vayu may cause severe pain just prior to menstruation called as Udavarta yoni vyapat.
There are many treatments for Udavarta Yoni vyapat in Ayurveda, which are non-hormonal, non-surgical & most effective without side effect. Among these Dashmoola Tail Anuvasan Basti mentioned in Charak Samhita was selected in present study.
