Sexual Abnormalities in Males and Their Herbal Therapeutic Aspects

Sarabjeet Singh, Ashraf Ali, Ramandeep Singh and Ramandeep Kaur

Abstract:
The inability to have child is a personal tragedy and a large proportion of childless people are confronted with social stigmatization and frustration. Erectile dysfunction is one of the commonest disorders of male sexual function. Among the methods used to treat male infertility problems, medicinal plants have been used empirically as extracts, decoctions, fractions or semi-purified compounds. These herbal products are used in the treatment of a dysfunctioning of the libido, sexual asthenia, erection and sperm disorders. Penile erection depends on a complex interaction of psychological, neural, vascular and endocrine factors. Testosterone has an important role in both central and peripheral domains of this process. Pharmacological activities of many plants have been shown in vitro using cells, in vivo (on laboratory animals) and human studies. Plants provide a treatment option that is affordable and available for infertile couples and phytotherapy is an essential form of treatment in our health system .In this review, we have summarized most of the data dealing with role of testosterone and the effects of plant extracts on mammalian reproductive functions.
