Keywords:Menstruation, Anartava, Nastartava, Artavakshaya, Artava, Rajah
Literary meaning of absence of Artava is known as Anartava. The description of Anartava is found under different headings like Anartava, Nashtartava or Artavakshaya in our classics by different Acharyas. Absence of artava itself is not a disease but a symptom of an underlying disorder of female reproductive system. Ayurveda refers to menstruation as Artava or Rajah. Modern science & Ayurveda both offer treatment for the Anartava. In the most cases, modern science encourages the return of menses through the use of artificial hormonal therapy. Ayurveda offers more options and avenues for treatment that allow women to bring awareness to their own cycle. The literary review of all conditions with anartava in Ayurveda is reviewed with review of research on management of amenorrhoea.
