trying to conceive

Embarking on the journey to conceive is an extraordinary and hopeful chapter in many people’s lives. 


According to Ayurveda, there are 4 essentials (Garbhasambhava Samagri) for conception. Whether you are just starting or have been on this path for a while, understanding these essentials can make the journey smoother. 


The essentials 

Ayurveda lists out few essentials that are necessary for conception.  


  • Fertile period (Garbhasaya Ritu) 

From 14th to 16th day of menstruation, after bleeding stops is called Ritu Kala. This is fertile phase of your monthly cycle and is therefore, very crucial. It is the right time for conception. 


  • The uterus (Kshetra) 

A healthy, disease-free uterus is ideal for conception. Uterus is home for the growing embryo. If there is any disease of the uterus, treat it before conception. 


  • Nourishment (Ambu) 

When food digests, Rasa Dhathu is formed. Its main function is Preenana or nourishment. A growing foetus receives nourishment from the mother’s Rasa Dhathu. Hence mother’s nutrition is extremely important.  


  • The gametes (Beeja) 

Beeja means seeds. It denotes the sperm (Shukla) and ovum (Artava). It is said the the quality of the seedling depends on the quality of the seeds. The best way to improve the quality of Beeja is by following a healthy lifestyle and diet.
