It negatively affects quality of life and is associated with poor health of women. Srivadivati is a polyherbal Ayurvedic drug, predominantly Tikta (bitter), Madhura (sweet), Kashaya (astringent) in Rasa (taste) and therefore are Pittakapha Shamaka (Pittakapha pacifying). It is indicated in Asrigdara.Total33 diagnosed patients of Asrugdara were enrolled as per selection criteria, out of them 30 patients completed the course of the treatment while 3 patients discontinued. Assessment criteria were based on the improvement in the score of cardinal symptoms before and after the treatment. There was a statistically significant reduction observed in cardinal symptoms by Sarivadi Vati at the end of the treatment period. The other common symptoms were also successfully reduced.
