In Ayurvedic Literature, Kashtartava is mentioned as a symptom as well as synonym of Udavartini Yonivyapada. In present study we consider Kashtartava as a Primary Dysmenorrhoea, as both condition having same characteristics & presentation. The treatment usually advocated for Primary Dysmenorrhoea in modern medicine does not provide long lasting solution and beside may lead to serious adverse effects. Therefore we selected a Ayurvedic regimen - Karanjbeejadi Churna in the female patient of age 17 years with complaint of abdominal pain during menses and muscle cramps in leg with nausea and vomiting. After giving Karanjbeejadi Churna for 7 days during menstrual period for consecutive 3 cycles, significant Improvement was noted with reduction in symptoms complex. Every ingredient of this preparation is ushna veeryatmak & shows analgesic effect as it acts on Vata dosha i.e. Vatashamak property. After taking patient’s 3 month follow up, it was observed that, there was 50% relief in symptoms associated with Kashtartava (Primary Dysmenorrhoea) without producing any adverse effects.
