Plants for Female Fertility Regulation: A Review

A.S. Ansari , K. Sevliya, I. Mohammad, A. Badar and N.K. Lohiya

The review provides updated scientific information of medicinal plants with proven female anti-fertility activity. The objective is to highlight the fertility regulating agents from plant origin for females. This review is a result of conduction of a literature search from different sources viz., the library of our institution, pubmed, google search and other personal sources. A total of 317 references were found using 204 plants for fertility regulation in females for the period of 68 years (1947-2015). The biological name, plant part, type of extract, dose, mode of administration, animal model and pharmacological action of these plants have been reviewed in this study to explore some of the ways in which phytotherapy may contribute and focus on research into potential herbal tools for population control.
