Hi doctor,

I am currently 39 years old and trying to conceive. My lab reports are; FSH is 23.23 IU/L, LH is 11.82 IU/L, and TSH is 4.50 mIU/L. I have taken Foleo M and Evadhea tablets for the past six months. In addition, I take tablet Letrozole for five days from the second day of the monthly cycle. I also take FSH injections. My doctor says I need to take these hormone injections and medicines as I do not have much time left and need to conceive soon. However, I have lost hope now. Can I take Siddha medicines for thyroid and ovulation long with the current medication? Kindly advice.



Welcome to

Considering your age, allopathic medications are better for conception. Siddha treatment takes a minimum of three months, or even more in younger women. Hormones including thyroid and reproductive hormones, ovarian health, and uterine endometrium all should be taken care of. If any cysts or fibroid is there, that has to be considered. Your husband's semen quality needs to be maintained in the right values. Is your periods regular? Is the ovulation happening? Is the ovum of good quality? Are the fallopian tubes proper? So, Siddha treatment requires all these details.

All values or tests are normal in some cases, but pregnancy may not happen. In such a situation, we give a few drugs for three cycles. If you have diabetes or other issues, Siddha can manage that. If you are so particular in taking Siddha alone or combining it with allopathy, proper follow-up is a must, as each month is so crucial in your case.

Considering your age, allopathic treatments (intrauterine insemination and in-vitro fertilization) are better for conception. So now, based on your choice, I can help you.

Thank you.

Hi doctor,

Kindly suggest what tests I need to take. I would like to know if both allopathic and Siddha treatments taken together will be of any help. During my ultrasound scans, doctors did not tell me I had any cysts, fibroids, or fallopian tube blockage. I can get the tests done as suggested by you to get confirmation. I have an ovulation issue due to high FSH and low LH levels. Also, I suffer from a thyroid problem. Please advice.



Welcome back to

The physician might have looked at all the issues during the scan. No need to do any new tests. From Siddha, I suggest you take the following medicines:

  1. Take Aloes compounds ( Aloe indica, Balsamodendron myrrh, Rubia cordifolia, Peganum harmala and Leptadenia reticulata) two tablets each in the morning, afternoon, and night after food. This is to continue until pregnancy occurs. During periods days, no need to take the tablets.
  2. Narasimha legiyam one spoon morning and night after food. This is for two months only.
  3. Capsule Siddhadhi ennai (Calcium sulfate) daily one capsule before bed at night. During the first three days of the period, take three capsules at morning six am. During these three days, no need to take it at night. Continue this drug until pregnancy occurs.
  4. Consume urad dal (black gram) daily in any form.
  5. If your cycle is 28 days, add fenugreek (methi) preparation from 14 to 18 days.
  6. During the first three days of periods take sesame sweets as snacks.
  7. Practice Nadi shuddhi pranayama for 15 minutes daily two times on an empty stomach.

If you follow these suggestions, your uterus and ovary will get prepared for conception, hormones will be normalized, and there will be improved chances of getting pregnant during allopathic treatment.

Thank you.
