Clinical Cases

Infertility and Evidence Based Homeopathy

Written by Nikunj Trivedi

Dr. Nikunj M. Trivedi successfully treats a young couple who were unable to conceive due to multiple problems of both partners.

A young couple visited my clinic in India, having a complaint of no issue after a married life of six years. They had tried many treatment options to start a family, seeking help in the UK and elsewhere.


Mr. K P.

He was a well built, handsome, enthusiastic young man with a very apprehensive mood who did everything in haste – a “hurried and worried” nature and character. He narrated to me that his wife had a PCOD (Poly cystic ovarian disease) and for that she is taking Allopathic treatment; (Clomiphene Citrate, 50 mg) for a pretty long time. As a result of PCOD, her periods were irregular. She developed severe abdominal cramps with a bloated feeling and was progressively gaining weight. Also, she had developed unwanted facial hair.

He was much worried about all these complaints of his wife and as a result he also developed erectile dysfunction, which gradually resulted in severe oligo–spermia. He had a strong liking towards jewellery, diamonds, gold, white gold. He was fond of eating sweets and craves them more during times of tension.

Mrs. M. P.

A young obese lady with puffiness of face and feet having complaints of –

  • Irregular menses – no certainty when it will come

  • Dysmenorrhoea – abdominal cramps

  • Nausea like sensation prior to periods

  • Missed periods of 4 to 6 months

  • Heaviness in the head

  • Breasts : very much painful

  • Can’t bear the touch of inner clothes

  • Dyspareunia (Painful Intercourse ) – so avoiding intercourse

  • Sluggishness in all her activities

  • Having warts around her neck region – very small and scattered

  • Very calm, quiet, answering in monosyllables

  • Wants to be alone, aversion to company

  • Strongly ‘longing for an heir’ – jealous of a lady having a baby

After a quick evaluation, I suggested she get an ultrasound, i.e. sonography. As she didn’t remember her LMP, we went to a radiologist – Dr. Jayesh Bhatt. After doing a pelvic sonography=USG, it was found that –

  • There were small multiple follicles in both the ovaries

  • Endometrium was very thin – 4.0 mm

  • Uterus was in normal shape, size and position

Blood tests were carried out to rule out hypothyroidism.

I had also advised ‘TORCH’ and ‘Female fertility Profile’.

While waiting for the Blood test reports to come,

I administered ‘Nux-Vomica – 200’ – two doses for five days to both the partners.

Uterus: Anteverted, size, 6.8 x 5.1 x 3.85 cm

Normal echo texture of endometrium,

No space occupying lesion ( SOL ) seen

Ovaries: Normal in size, shape and structure.

Investigation plan for TORCH* test


Date of Test

Test Result


Rubella Ig-G (84.28)


Cytomegalo Virus Ig-G (10.58)

After 5 days, I called the couple again for a detailed history taking to find a suitable remedy after evaluating the totality for their problems.

Mr. K. P. had an improvement in his sexual performance. Now he was hopeful that he would definitely get positive results. After 6 months, I was informed about Mrs. M.P’s pregnancy. I was overwhelmed!

From its use historically and currently, it is seen that silver has anti-Inflammatory properties and well as antiseptic, anti-bacterial, preservative, restorative, anti-fungal and healing properties.

Argentum Nitricum removed the inflammatory reaction of the testes and restored the disrupted vital force, which repaired the deranged pathology, thus restoring normal spermatogenesis. The problem of Oligo-spermia was corrected and normal sperm count restored.



The sting of bees, wasps ,fire ants and some other insects contain:

1.Phospholipase A2






  • After bee sting….

  • Body quickly over reacts with Histamine secretion

  • Bee sting triggers the release of Histamine from mast cells.

  • Histamine is usually found in higher concentration in skin, lungs and gastric Mucosa.

  • Histamine is a potent arterial dilator leading to hypotension.

  • In the lungs, it causes bronchial constriction leading to spasm, dyspnoea, wheezing and respiratory collapse.

Phospholipase A2……

It’s a membrane protein, which hydrolyzes


Phospholipids…to form….


Fatty Acids and lysophospholipid products.


Phospholipase A2 proteins are responsible for the release of…

ARCHIDONIC Acid from cell membrane.

Subsequent conversion of this Fatty Acid to….

Leukotrienes and Prostaglandin is a part of the inflammatory response.

Leading to inflammatory cyst formation.

On the basis of the Law of Similars—Similia Similibus Curentur

APIS MELLIFICA works to remove the cysts from the ovaries.

  • Dear Dr. Nikunj, all the best compliments to you for successful treatment. One thing I wanted to know that is there any specific Homoeopathic remedy or Q by which pathologicvally or clinically proved for corrections of immotile sperms, please if there is any, I wanted to know as a same professionalist. I am waiting your reply.

  • Impressive
    Doc. Would you explain canthris on female part….
    According to me it helps to increase the sense of intercourse

  • Dear Nikhil,

    I am wondering what a dose of argentum nitricum 1M daily would have done to the patient. Cure is not to increase the count of the life givers. Cure is to improve the person on all grounds. The remedy was given in a proving fashion and looks like existing disease was suppressed and a new one was created(Arg Nit). I think you should follow up and see what else might have popped up with the male patient. Homeopathy is not to cure one single symptom(lack of life givers). Totality of symptoms should have been taken into consideration and right dose(s) should be used. I hope the patient has not come back with a lot of flatulence, suffocation and other prominent ArgNit symptoms……

  • First of all my hearty congratulations on your success. While coming to the case, only the single remedy Apismel cured all her symptoms is really amazing and surprising one also. When comes to male part !M potency for 6 weeks x twice a day a week., almost 24 doses. How it is possible to such long extent in such high potency? Any how thanks for your sharing and proving.
