The contribution of Ayurveda for reproductive health has been discussed as it has negligible side effects and rejuvenative abilities. Methodological perspectives of the issues enumerated are focused on Asian and Middle East countries among which Bangladesh, Indonesia, India and China are exhaustively covered. Other countries discussed include USA and Nigeria. Most of the contributors are the senior academics and belong to China, India, Indonesia, Africa, Australia, Canada, France and USA.
