Abstract: Traditionally, the rural women prefer plant medicines rather than modern medicines for abortion, menstrual trouble, conception disorders, sterility, delivery problems, etc. Some ethnomedicinal observations made from the rural areas of Haryana, revealed valuable phytotherapeutic information on the various gynecological disorders. Uses of 17 plant species for menstrual disorders, 15 species for leucorrhoea, 6 species for delivery problems, 5 species for gonorrhea, 4 species for lactation troubles, 3 species for abortion and 2 species for miscarriage have been enumerated. Information on 52 plants with their botanical and vernacular names, family, prescriptions with therapeutic doses and uses are presented. Documentation of such ethnomedicinal data on biological resources will be steps for bioprospecting.
