Infertility is a multifactorial condition affecting both partners, of which the female contributes about 40% cases of infertile couples. Of all the various factors, the most frequently contributing factors are those of ovarian and uterine. Polycystic ovarian disease is the most common cause of an ovulatory infertility, being found in 75% of cases. It now proves to be a significant factor in female infertility with the prevalence of 0.6%–3.4% in infertile couples. While uterine or endometrial polyps are one among those that can affect the shape and functioning of the uterus, thereby leading to infertility. On an average, the prevalence of endometrial polyps can vary from 7.8% to 34.9%. The contemporary medical science extends hormonal and surgical intervention as the prime line of the management. Ayurvedic treatment modalities can bypass the surgical management to avoid the related burden and provide a fruitful outcome in such conditions. Here, we present a case of primary infertility with a known polycystic ovarian disease and sonologically diagnosed endometrial polyp. The case was successfully treated with Ayurvedic treatment modalities such as virechana karma, uttara basti, nasya karma, and shaman aushadi. The treatment course resulted in the regression of the polyp, re-established ovulation, and a successful conception with full-term normal labor.
