Introduction: In Vedas priority has been given to women in all her walks of life. Women lifespan can be broadly categorized into 3 phases based on the reproductive function i.e. Kanya (stage prior to menopause), Patni or Mata (active reproductive stage) and Vridhavastha (menopausal stage). The Matrutva or Motherhood of women is well appreciated in Bharatvarsh. A mother who cares, protect and bring up a small life into a capable citizen needs the same care and protection in her old age. After 40 years women body undergoes physiological changes. In some women these physiological changes goes without a notice and in some women, it results in the manifestation of group of symptoms i.e. Perimenopausal syndrome which need Medical attention using HRT. Looking at the adverse effect of HRT and lack of scientific evidence to support or refute claims that the commonly used botanical product offer Therapeutic benefit in Perimenopausal syndrome Satavari-yoga was selected for the present study. Aims and Objective: Aim and objective of the study is to assess the efficacy of Satavari choorna in Perimenopausal syndrome.
