The aim of the study is to increase the sperm count and sperm motility in male infertility patients. The trial medicine, Murungaipoo lehyam was prepared as per the literature. The duration of the trial period is 90 days. The trial dose is 5 gm twice a day. I had selected 18 patients for the trial, based on inclusion and exclusion criterias. Before treatment Informed consent will be obtained from the patients. Before treatment semen analysis, routine blood and urine examination were taken in all the 18 patients. Siddha methods like udal thathukkal, Envagai thervu, neerkuri, neikuri and buoyancy on water were noted in selection proforma. 13 patients came with clinical symptoms like premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, painful micturition, nocturnal emission, painful coitus. Other 5 patients did not felt any clinical symptoms before and after married life. The entire details of the patients were noted in the selection proforma. They will be instructed to come for next clinic visit after 10 days. Also they will be asked to bring back the unconsumed drug during their next visit and return the same. The assessment form was noted in every clinic visit. At the end of treatment the clinical symptoms reduced in all the 13 patients. After treatment semen analysis was taken in 16 patients. Out of these 12 patients were improved. 2 patients did not give semen analysis after treatment. But, they were relieved from clinical symptoms. 3 patients attained the stage of fertilization. After treatment no side- effects were noted. The quantitative analysis of the medicine was done in atomic absorption spectrometer method. The study indicates the presence of minerals like sodium, potassium, zinc, manganese, calcium, iron. The qualitative analysis indicates the presence of phosphorus and sugar. The zinc, manganese, selenium are helpful for the male sexual function. The calcium and phosphorus are helpful for prostatic composition of semen. CONCLUSION: In clinical trial, out of 18 patients, 12 patients were improved. The sperm count and the sperm motility was increased in those patients. All the 18 patients were relieved from clinical symptoms. The sperm count and sperm motility differences are statistically significant in Male infertility patients. Chemical analysis of Murungaipoo lehyam indicates the presence of elements like sodium, calcium, phosphorus, zinc, selenium, manganese, potassium, iron and sugar. There are no side effects observed during the course of treatment and after treatment also. The cost of the medicine is comparatively low. The ingredients are easily available and the rural people will be benefited more. I have concluded the siddha medicine; Murungaipoo lehyam was effective in the treatment of Aan maladu (Male infertility especially Oligospermia and Asthenozoospermia).
