Ayurvedic treatment emphasizes the use of vaginal douches (uttarbasti or yonidhavana).
These douches are intended to treat the uterus, fallopian tubes, and the external
vagina. They act as local antibiotics, clear the blockages in the channel pathway,
and pacify dosha. The herbs used for douches are Santalum album (chandana), Azadiracta
indica (neem),Tinospora cordifolia (guduchi), Saraca indica (ashoka), Terminalia
arjuna (Arjuna), etc. Internally,ginger, cinnamon, fenugreek, gooseberry (Emblica
officinalis), Terminalia chebula,and Hemidesmus indicus are the popular herbs.
