STREEROGA & PRASUTI TANTRA (GYNECOLOGY & OBSTETRICS)
One of the leading departments at Sri Sri Ayurveda hospital is the department of stree roga and prasuti tantra (gynaecology and obstetrics department). This department specialises in taking care of ailments of women from puberty.
Gynaecology in Ayurveda deals with the aspects of menstrual disturbances such as irregular periods, dysmenorrhea, increased bleeding during menstruation, PCOS etc and menopausal changes and related issues. Whereas obstetrics in Ayurveda or Prasuti tantra specializes in female infertility (vandyatwa), pre-conceptual care (garbhadhana samskara), pre-natal care (garbhini samskara) & post-natal care (sutika samskara).
Pumsavana karma, a unique method to get good progeny is practiced here. Also, treatments to ease the delivery like garbhini matra basti are practiced under monitoring. Considering the fact that there is a significant increase with regards to the number of cases of post-partum stress, Prasuti tantra in Ayurveda which was an important science of earlier period, is very much relevant even today.
