In women?s life menopause is the most significant event. WHO has defined postmenopausal women as those women who have stopped menstrual bleeding one year ago or stopped having periods as a result of medical or surgical intervention like hysterectomy, oophorectomy. More than 80% women experience physical or psychological symptoms in the years when they reach menopause with various distress in their lives, leading to decrease in the quality of life. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is most effective therapy but has other side effects. Considering the limitations of HRT, present need is to explore new options for the management of menopausal symptoms in the form of non hormonal drug therapy. In Ayurvedic classics it is described under a title of Rajonivrutti and various beneficiary measures are mentioned for treatment of rajonivruttianubandhitvyadhies (postmenopausal syndrome). This study was done to evaluate the efficacy of drugs which are used in postmenopausal syndrome. The treatment was conducted for the duration of 5 months. The response to the treatment was recorded and therapeutic effects were evaluated with the help of symptomatic relief. The results show that the postmenopausal syndrome can be better managed with ayurvedic drugs and can avoid HRT and their side effects.
