Mullerian Dysgenesis is a maldevelopment of the Generative tract that mostly goes unnoticed retaining menstruation and childbearing function. Until there is no cavity. In this category, (< 1 % is the incidence), there are no changes after birth, and they cannot menstruate. Their life is one of despair with no hope. Till date, there has been no report of any medical corrective method for this deformation.
In 2005, after getting a Patent (thus preserving the methodology) from the Government of India entitled, ‘A unique combination of Ayurvedic Compounds for correcting a rare form of mullerian dysgenesis’, he started, ‘Correction of mullerian dysgenesis’ at A. G. Hospital, Chromepet, as a prospective patent on the first of April in 2005.
Till date, 20 cases (18 without cavity) have undergone corrections, 17 of which have developed a cavity, three have attained menarche (first period), and five have entered into matrimony. This is the first medical option for this condition. It is our fervent hope that this regime will help them re-join the mainstream.
