Author(s): Mobashshera Khan, Ismath Shameem, Sheikh Imran, Iftequar Jehan Begum
Abstract: Introduction: Sailan al rahim is not a single entity but a wide term, and its description is similar to bacterial vaginosis, which is considered as the most common vaginal infection among women of childbearing age. This condition is notorious for causing severe complications related to the reproductive health of women. The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of gule dhawa sailan al rahim (bacterial vaginosis).
Methods: A single blind randomized placebo controlled clinical trial was conducted at Institute’s Hospital. Diagnosed cases (n=60) were included and randomly allocated to test (n=30) and control (n=30) groups. In test group, powder prepared from gule dhawa (Woodfordia fructosa L. Kurz) and mocharas (Bombax malabaricum DC) was administered orally in a dose 6 g in capsule form twice daily for 4 week and in control group, placebo was given for the same duration. The subjective and objective parameters (Amsel’s criteria) were assessed for improvement. Chi square and Fisher’s exact test were used for statistical analysis.
Results: Gule Dhawa and Mocharas showed better response than placebo in eliminating clue cells, fishy odour and reducing homogenous vaginal discharge (P<0.01) after completion of trial.
Conclusion: Gule Dhawa and Mocharas were effective in the management of sailan al rahim; hence, it can be used as an alternate therapy.
