Tuberculosis remains the major health problem not only in India but also in world. According to World Health Organization, one third of global population is suffering from tuberculosis. In India, genital tract tuberculosis is defined as an important cause of infertility. In various reports, the prevalence of genital TB has been reported from less than 1% to over than 20% in different countries. Reports indicate that this condition affects about 10 to 20 % of couples of the reproductive age around the world. Add-on therapy means any treatment given to bolster or enhance the effectiveness of a previous one, especially when the first treatment proved not to be fully effective. It is now times to offer new add on therapies to anti-tubercular drugs like effective formulations of Ayurveda in the management of Genital Tuberculosis. An Ayurvedic formulation - Jivantyadi Ghrita of Charak Samhita in female genital tuberculosis is scrutinized in this study.
