Abstract: Information related with Ethno-Gynecological uses of locally available plants in the rural part of West Bengal were collected from the medicine men and documented. Three southern districts of West Bengal, India with different Agro-climatic conditions, viz. Paschim Medinipur, Purba Medinipur, and Murshidabad were selected for that purpose. Information was collected on the use of plant parts to treat problems like infertility, dysmenorrhoea, leucorrhoea, profuse menstrual bleeding and irregular menstrual period and also as agent for termination of pregnancy. With the help of available literatures, the previously reported use of these medicinal plants are analyzed in the perspective of identifying any possible impact on problems considered as female diseases.
