Ayurveda contraceptive sans side effects

Scientists at the Central Council for Research in Ayurveda and Siddha (CCRAS) have claimed to have developed a herbal contraceptive pill with "99 per cent success rate" and absolutely "no side-effects." The scientists at the center have developed the "first" herbal contraceptive pill - 'Pippalyadi yoga' - using a recipe that was rediscovered in a 2,500-year-old medical text, Deputy Director CCRAS Dr K D Sharma, told PTI recently.

The efficacy of the drug with different doses has been tested during phase-I Multicentric, Toxicological, Terratogenic and Safety Studies at PGI, Chandigarh; JIPMER, Pondichery and KEM Hospital, Mumbai.

"No adverse effect in hormonal, biochemical, endometrial and sonographic studies for ovulation has been reported during the studies conducted on about 1400 women," he said. The trials were conducted on fertile female volunteers in age group, 20-34 years, having a menstrual cycle between 26-30 days (with 3-5 days menstruation period) and with inter-pregnancy period between 13-24 months, he said.

"Prolonged administration of the drug has not shown any significant side effect or adverse effects," Sharma said. The drug is undergoing phase II clinical trials at various centres across the country, as per the standards recommended by International agencies. The pill, offering a relatively cheap, non-toxic contraceptive, would hit the market within two years, Sharma said. The pill, to be taken orally everyday except during monthly cycle, costs about 50 Indian paise, he said.
