Sonu Sharma* and Dr. Ashish Kumar Sharma

ABSTRACT

India has a rich culture of medicinal herbs and spices, including Ayurvedic, Unani, Siddha and other traditional medicines but only very few have been studied chemically and pharmacologically for their potential medicinal value. According to the World Health Organization, most populations still rely on traditional medicines for their psychological and physical health requirements. Herbal medicines are in great demand in both developed and developing countries as a source of primary health care owing to their attributes having wide biological and medicinal activities, high safety margins and lesser costs. As far as population growth is concerned India will be the leading country within few years of time span. Current pandemic population explosion demands an immediate betterment of new potential contraception. Thus, there is growing need to look for aphrodisiac more from natural plant or herbal origin as opposed to synthetic compounds which are known to cause severe unwanted side effects. In this regard, we have taken the plants Mucuna prurita, Mesua ferrea, punica granatum that has been used traditionally as antifertility agent in women and aphrodisiac, so that the couples without issue may be benefited for better acceptance in society and they may have better psychological health.
