Abstract: Population control is the need of the hour to stabilise the world population growth and to decrease economic burden for almost all the nations on this globe. There are well established contraceptive drugs and measures have been evaluated in existing modern system of medicine. But hormonal contraceptives can not be used for long duration due to their severe side effects. Available local contraceptive measures do not give 100% surety of prevention of conception. Permanent measures are surgical therapies only. Hence, there is a need to evaluate alternate and safe formulations from indigenous systems of medicine for temporary as well as permanent sterilization. Hence in this present article, an attempt has been made to review formulations described in Ayurvedic classics and to throw light on scientific validity of the same.
