Author : Gurnam Saini  

Why Consider Ayurveda Treatment?

Premature Ejaculation PE (Shukragata Vata) and  Ayurveda


Premature Ejaculation (PE) or Shukragata Vata is a disease caused by vitiated Vata Dosha which presents mainly with impairment in Ejaculation and Seminal properties. The movement of Vata gets increased because of weakness of Sperm tissue, obstruction in the channels carrying sperm and vitiation of Vata Dosha.


For understanding the Ayurveda concept of Premature Ejaculation, we have to understand the properties of Vata, Shukra Dhatu (Sperm Tissue) and Shukravaha Srotas (Channels carrying Sperm).


Understanding Vata Dosha In Relation to Premature Ejaculation


There are three doshas in our body and all are considered as a unique self-originated components in itself. Vata dosha has a self-governing, eternal and all-encompassing nature. Vata Dosha has the ability to carry out the life processes in association with the other two Doshas – Pitta and Kapha.


Vata regulates the functions of the other Doshas and without Vata, Pitta and Kapha Dosha are considered as lame. Vata Dosha being invisible or non-sensible becomes visible through its actions. Its qualities are non-unctuousness, coldness, lightness, roughness, mobility and having the predominance of Rajas mental quality. It is the major carrier of Dosha and Dushya (Tissues). It is the most leading and eminent factor of a large group of diseases.


Vata Dosha is subtle, all pervasive, quick acting and continuously moving component of the body. Equilibrium of all bodily components depends upon the normal functioning of Vata Dosha and hence healthy status if body pertains to healthy status of Vata Dosha. When Vata Dosha gets aggravated, it finds a suitable place in the body and gets filled up in the empty channels – Srotas and moves speedily through them.


On a psychosexual plane, Vata Dosha controls the mind and carries out mental activities. Vata Dosha is responsible for the functions of the mind. Vata is the controller and stimulator of the mind; these both are responsible for optimal sexual arousal, activity and gratification. In Premature Ejaculation, as Vata Dosha is vitiated, it causes excess stimulation which leads to lack of control over the physiological and psychological activities.


Factors responsible for Healthy Ejaculation of Sperm


According to Acharya Charaka (Ayurveda scholar), the 8 factors responsible for ejaculation are:


  • Harsha (Excitement or Desire),
  • Tarsha (Passionate or Strong desire for sex with a woman),
  • Sara (Fluidity of semen),
  • Picchila (Sliminess),
  • Gaurava (Heaviness),
  • Anutva (Atomicity),
  • Pravanabhava (Tendency to flow out) and
  • Drutavat Marutasya (Due to Vata).


Vata Dosha controls the physiology of ejaculation. Vitiation of Vata Dosha causes Premature ejaculation which is characterised by ejaculation problems or in association with impairment of properties of semen.


Mechanism of Ejaculation of Sperm based on Ayurveda Principles 


When the person (mind) gets sexual excitement or arousal due to urge for sex or romantic mood, then Sperm is ejaculated through the urethra just like ghee (clarified butter) melts. Heat is produced during sexual intercourse which liquifies the sperm so it flows out easily just like the anti-gravity flow of water (Flow from lower to higher altitude) due to expenditure of energy. Also Apana Vata (suntype of Vata) is located in the pelvic region, the function of which is ejaculation. Thus the functions of Sperm tissue, mind and Vata Dosha are inter related. Optimal arousal, timely ejaculation and satisfaction of sex are governed by equilibrium of the Sperm tissue, Mind and Vata Dosha and their functional relation. Any impairment in the sperm tissue, mind or Vata Dosha will lead to impairment in ejaculation and seminal defects.


Concept of Relation between Sperm Tissue, Vata Dosha and Mind in Ayurveda 


Sperm tissue, Mind and Vata Dosha are all present in the body. All the three have atomicity property. Sperm tissue has the property of flowing out / fluidity whereas Mind and Vata Dosha have the property of mobility or movement. The different functions of Sperm tissue can be explained in the neuropsychological axis of the mind. Vata Dosha is the receptacle for stimulation and sexual gratification which are functionally attributed to Sperm tissue. All sense organs are controlled by the Mind, the mind is in turn controlled by the Vata Dosha.


Sexual gratification depends upon the physical strength as well as mental strength. And pleasantness of mind is necessary for sexual gratification. Thus psychoneurological activities are represented by the Sperm tissue. Sexual desire arises in the mind, manifests in the Body (Sperm tissue) and stimulation & control of sex is governed by Vata Dosha. The more important psychological and sexual related functions of Sperm tissue – Courage, Sexual Desire, Control of Ejaculation and Satisfaction are inter related and governed by Vata Dosha. Any impairment in the Vata Dosha leads to poor erection and premature ejaculation.


Definition of Shukragata Vata (Premature Ejaculation)


Shukragata Vata explained Ayurveda denotes ejaculation problems. The disease in which aggravated Vata Dosha takes seat at semen and creates various symptoms is called as Shukragata Vata.


Acharya  Charaka has mentioned the clinical signs of Shukragata Vata in his text Charaka Samhita. The clinical signs of Shukragata Vata are premature / delayed ejaculation, inability to conceive, problems in foetus or premature birth of the baby. Premature Ejaculation denotes the ejaculation just before penetration or immediately after penetration and when psychological factors are involved.


Premature Ejaculation includes the following –


  • Kshipram Munchati : Early ejaculation
  • Shukrasya Sheeghram utsargam: Fast ejaculation
  • Atiseeghra Pravritti: Premature Ejaculation


Shukra Dhatu (Sperm Tissue) and Shukravaha Srotas (Channels carrying Sperm)


Sperm tissue is the seventh and last tissue of the body. It takes one month time for transformation of diet into Sperm tissue .


(Reference: Sushrut Samhita Sutra Sthana 14/14)


Sperm tissue resembles the colour of ghee, oil or honey, and is unctuous, heavy, viscous, sweet and cold by nature. Quantity of sperm tissue mentioned in Ayurveda texts is half measure of a handful.


Sperm tissue is assumed to be present in each molecule of the body. Acharya Susrutha has compared the appearance of Sperm tissue everywhere in the body by stating two examples –


  • As presence of ghee in milk automatically envelops the whole quantity of milk, meaning one cannot assume separate presence of ghee from milk, it is there adhered to every molecule of milk.


  • As juice of sugarcane (sugar) occupies the whole stick of sugarcane, meaning one cannot separate the sweetness or sugar from sugarcane juice.


Likewise, Sperm tissue binds each and every cell if the body and is present everywhere.


All the Pancha Mahabhutas – earth, water, fire, air and space are present in the sperm but there is predominance of water & earth elements.


Functions of Sperm in Ayurveda 


  • Dhairya – Determination
  • Chyavana – Timely ejaculation
  • Preeti – Sexual Desire
  • Dehabala – Physical Strength


The channeled system which carries nourishment to the Sperm tissue is called as Shukravaha Srotas. Organs related to the reproduction are included under channels carrying sperm and these channels originate from the testicles and penis.


(Reference: Charaka Samhita Vimana Sthana 5/8)


Causes of vitiation of the Channels carrying Sperm in Ayurveda 


  • Having sexual intercourse when not properly aroused.
  • Performing sex with other than humans, that is with sex toys.
  • Excessive indulgence in sex.
  • Physical injury due to surgery, application of alkalies or due to cauterization.


Symptoms of vitiation of Channels carrying Sperm in Ayurveda 


Symptoms of vitiation of sperm carrying channels can be explained in terms of 8 types of abnormalities of semen (Ashta Shukra Dosha) which as explained by Acharya Charaka are:


(Reference: Charaka Samhita Sutra Sthana 24/1)


  1. Phenila: Frothy Semen: Excessively frothy semen is caused due to lightness property of Vata Dosha.
  2. Tanu: Thin Semen: It refers to the consistency and quantity of semen. Semen becomes excessively thin consistency like water and is scanty or less in quantity due to vitiation of Vata Dosha. So, liquefaction period and sperm count are decreased.
  3. Ruksha: Scanty Semen: Non unctuous semen is caused due to increase in dryness quality of Vata Dosha and decrease of Kapha Dosha. This causes scanty semen and pain during ejaculation.
  4. Vivarna-Asveta: Discolored Semen: Semen with other color shades or discolored semen occurs due to vitiation of Pitta Dosha. Yellowish or bluish tinge of semen is seen in Pitta aggravation.
  5. Puti: Putrid smell of semen: Semen with foul smell is caused due to aggravation of Pitta Dosha.
  6. Picchila: Excessively greasy or slimy semen: This occurs due to obstruction caused by the vitiated Kapha Dosha. The predominance of water element in semen causes it to be sticky / slimy. Liquefaction period is more than normal and semen is thread in texture because of increased viscosity.
  7. Anyadhatu Samsrusta: Semen mixed with other body elements or blood: This occurs due to excess intercourse or injury. As the injured Sperm comes out with the blood it will have reddish color.
  8. Avasadi: Heavy and knotty semen: Semen becomes knotty and sinks in water when it is obstructed in its normal movement by aggravated Vata Dosha because of suppression of urge for sex. Kapha Dosha is aggravated in this condition and the person feels pain and exhaustion after sex.



Acharya Susrutha has mentioned the below 8 types of vitiation of Semen.


  1. Vata Dushta: Semen vitiated by Vata Dosha will lead to painful coitus and color of semen will have blackish-reddish tinge.
  2. Pitta Dushta: When Pitta Dosha vitiates the semen, there will be feeling of discomfort or excess heat during sexual intercourse and semen will have yellowish or bluish tinge.
  3. Kapha Dushta: When semen is affected with aggravated Kapha Dosha, there will be itching in the penis and whitish discoloration of semen.
  4. Rakta Dushta: Semen will have putrid smell and will be increased in quantity when afflicted with aggravated blood tissue.
  5. Granthiyukta: When semen gets vitiated by aggravated Kapha and Vata Dosha it becomes knotty in texture and will not be able to fuse with the eggs, therefore inefficient to form garbha.
  6. Putipooya Shukra: There will be foul smell of semen when it is vitiated by Pitta and Kapha Dosha.
  7. Kshina Shukra: When semen is affected with Pitta and Vata Dosha, it leads to reduced quantity of semen which leads to delayed ejaculation. Also, the ejaculated semen will be less in quantity.
  8. Mutra Purisha Gandhi Shukra: When all the three Doshas vitiate semen, it leads to smell of the semen resembling that of urine or faeces.

Pathogenesis of Premature Ejaculation In Ayurveda 


Ejaculatory Impairment - Vata Dosha increases due to the above causative factors and leads to structural and functional impairment of the Sperm. Specifically, the mobility nature of Vata is impaired which leads to problems in stimulation for ejaculation. Premature Ejaculation is a psychosomatic problem especially in an anxious person. Vata Dosha is responsible for the sexual desire, penile rigidity, erection & thrust and control of ejaculation. Vata controls and stimulates the mind. When Vata Dosha is vitiated, it causes over stimulation leading to lack of control over the psychological and physiological activities. Also when the person suffers from stress, fear, anxiety it triggers Premature Ejaculation.


Seminal Impairment - When this vitiated Vata Dosha affects Sperm tissue, it causes impairment in the physical properties (Volume, Viscosity and Transparency) of the Semen and seminal parameters like decrease in Sperm count, motility and morphology.


Foetal Abnormalities - Thus defects in Sperm qualities will afflict the foetus and may lead to premature birth, delayed birth or foetal abnormalities. Acharya Charaka states that Bija (Sperm and Ovum), Bija Bhaga (Chromosomes), Bija Bhaga Avayava (Gene) are responsible for reproduction. If even one of the these three factors is abnormal then there will be chances of foetal formation but in abnormal state.


Aggravation of Vata occurs in two ways:


  • Due to obstruction in the normal pathway (Margavarodha) – Obstruction may occur due to onset of any other pathology in the pathway of Vata Dosha, that is in the Sperm Carrying Channels. Due to such obstruction Vata Dosha gets aggravated and tends to circulate through abnormal pathways ultimately giving rise to onset of various diseases including Premature ejaculation.
  • Due to depletion in strength of tissues (Dhatukshaya) – Due to such reduction in strength and quality of the bodily tissues with relevant causes like improper diet or old age, empty space is created in the body which quickly gets filled up by Vata Dosha which circulates freely in it and ultimately becomes abnormally powerful and speedy to create various diseases including Premature Ejaculation.


Obstruction in the Sperm carrying channels and inferior qualities of tissues causes aggravation of Vata Dosha which in turn manifests in the Sperm carrying channels producing Premature Ejaculation.

Dosha - Vitiated Doshas: Tridosha mainly Vata

Dushya - Vitiated Tissue: Sperm

Agni - Status of Digestive & Metabolic Fire: Low

Srotas - Circulatory Channels involved: Sperm carrying channels

Srotodushti Prakara - Type of vitiation of circulatory channels: Obstruction

Rogamarga - Pathway of Disease: External & Internal

Vyadhiprakara – Cause of Disease: Internal & External


Ayurveda Treatment of Premature Ejaculation PE


Kama (Desires including sexual desire) is one among the Purusharthas, that is objectives of life. Vajikarana is a specialized branch of Ayurveda which deals with the sexual health of a person. It explains in detail about sexual problems and its management including that of infertility as well.

Panchakarma procedures like Basti (Therapeutic enema) and Virechana (Purgation) can be beneficial in Premature Ejaculation. Basti (Therapeutic Enema) balances Vata Dosha which is vitiated in Premature Ejaculation; hence it is the suggested Panchakarma treatment. Uttarabasti is a type of therapeutic enema which is administered through the urethra and it has a direct action on the semen qualities hence can beneficial in improving the seminal parameters. Virechana (Therapeutic Purgation) can corrects digestive and metabolic fire, thereby improving the quality of Sperm tissue. Virechana may also helps to removes any obstruction in the Sperm carrying channels thereby regulate the movement of Vata in these channels.


Management by Ayurveda Therapies, Herbs, Diet & Lifestyle for Premature Ejaculation PE


The aim of this approach is the use of herbs and therapies which are:

As stress and anxiety trigger Premature Ejaculation, counseling will be helpful to impart confidence in the person and improve optimistic thinking which will help to reduce performance anxiety and make the person indulge in sexual intercourse enthusiastically. Psychological component is strong. As rejuvenated mind improves excitement, courage, Confidence, Positivity which shows improved results in Premature Ejaculation, counseling is helpful as pleasantness of the mind is restored by counseling.

However, it can be treated with Ayurveda treatment and modifications in diet & lifestyle.

  • I strongly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic to anyone who is looking into natural and organic health benefits. I consulted Ayurvedic Doctor Dr Gurnam Saini for hair loss treatment, as I had almost tried everything from expensive hair products to medicine for years and was highly disappointed. Dr Saini was very detailed and made me understand how lot of factors including my digestive fire, my sleep, my lifestyle etc. were directly impacting my hair health. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and his passion about getting me to understand the root cause. I clearly figured out how I was not in sync with my body. I am actually surprised that these organic ayurvedic medicines are very effective, as that was not my immediate expectation and I thought it will be a very lengthy process, but I was ready to give it a go! He also gave a me a specific ayurvedic organic hair oil to put on my scalp. It's been 3 months and I have almost completely stopped loosing hair and gaining more volume in my hair. I also found that taking shirodhara and nasya and head massage ayurvedic therapies of Dr Saini's recommendation was also important part of the treatment. I now feel more connected to my body and definitely my hair growth is visible to me and my family. Thank you Dr Gurnam Saini and Dr Pooja Saini (for those amazing therapies). You guys are working for a great cause.
