Modern comparison

Modern correlation and comparative study| Early abortion Some equated vamini gynaecological disorder with early abortion due to failure of implantation. Charaka and Vagbhata have mentioned rejection of semen by the uterus. But Sushruta has also included expulsion of ovum in his description of pathogenesis of vamini. According to Ayurveda, mere combination of sperm and ovum cannot be considered as garbha i.e. zygote until and unless there is descent of jiva i.e. life element in the combination of sperm and ovum. None of the classics have explained expulsion or rejection of garbha in vamini. Therefore vamini doesn’t look like the explanation of early abortion. Read – Herbs Useful For Maintenance Of Pregnancy

Psychological abnormality / ovulation cascade Some opine that vamini is an explanation of some psychological abnormality in woman. When women are mentally disturbed during or after coitus or if there is unwillingness to conceive, the semen may be expelled from uterus before conception has taken place. This condition is compared to the ovulation cascade of endometrial and cervical discharges. Read – Prakcharana Symptoms, pathology, Treatment
