The core classical Ayurvedic scriptures begin with accounts of gods passing down medicinal knowledge to sages and then to human doctors. Ayurvedic treatments have altered and evolved over two millennia. Manual therapies, dietary supplements, lifestyle, herbal medicines, medication, yoga, and purification techniques are all utilized in traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine. Although ayurvedic techniques are frequently employed to treat nabothian cysts, little comprehensive data on their effectiveness as compared to mainstream care is out there. Here let’s examine how Ayurvedic care is critical in curing Nabothian cysts!


Nabothian cysts are a lump crammed with mucus that’s secreted by cervical glands of the uterus which are seen on the surface or mouth of the cervix or canalis cervicis uteri. They’re very small in size, particularly 1 inch long. they’re inclusion cysts (something that has been blocked or collected forms a cyst). Nabothian Cysts are common and benign gynecologic findings in women of reproductive age, generally without clinical significance.


Cervix is lined with two sorts of cells. The outer part is dry and is the stratified squamous epithelium. The inner part is moist and maybe a columnar epithelium that secretes mucus. Inner columnar epithelial cells protrude out into the mouth of the cervix and become overlapped by the outer squamous epithelium. When this happens, the secretions build up in plugged glands.

This is a traditional condition in pregnant women. Normally, your cervix is hospitable allowing your menstruation fluid to pass from your uterus to your vagina, and for sperm to enter the uterus to your vagina. During pregnancy, the cervix closes to keep the developing baby inside the uterus. After your child is born, thanks to high hormone levels, the columnar epithelium grows over the mucous glands and becomes an erosion, so as soon as, it grows out, it’s to get replaced by squamous epithelium that causes inclusion cysts called nabothian cysts.


The seed capsule of the lotus flower is referred to as Karnini. Karnini Yoni Vyapad may be considered as a little protuberance near the Garbhashaya Dwara that resembles the Padma Karnika or lotus pericarp. An elevated lesion at the Garbhashaya Greeva characterizes the Karnini Yonivyapad. The lesion is claimed to simulate the pericarp of the lotus flower in appearance. Karnini is often compared with cervical erosion. The cervix becomes swollen, congested, and coated with tiny red projections that resemble sprouts in cervical erosion. Due to the presence of small sprouts, the cervix takes on the shape of a small brush. This erosion is usually caused by nabothian cysts, which are small pea-sized smooth nodular structures. When it comes to nabothian cysts, this refers to the lotus pericarp.

If the pregnant woman strains prematurely to expel the fetus, then Vata in reproductive organs gets obstructed by the fetus and successively, Vata is vitiated. Then Rakta (blood) and Kapha together vitiate and further vitiation of Vata occurs. This aggravated Vata causes Karnika (polyp or nodular growth) in her genitalia. This polyp obstructs the course of blood flow, and therefore the ailment is named Karnini.


Nabothian cysts are often screened and diagnosed during a pelvic examination. It is often seen on a pelvic ultrasound, MRI, or CT scan when watching the cervix. They have a silky appearance and are white or yellow in color. Do not be afraid if you are told you have a nabothian follicle during a vaginal ultrasound exam; their existence is typical. These cysts don’t cause pain, discomfort, or other symptoms, and they are in benign condition.

In rare cases, the cysts may become larger and warp the form and size of your cervix, and block the cervix; the corresponding can do a ‘Pap test’. If it’s severe and needs treatment, they are often removed through excision. In some cases, your doctor may drain fluid from the cyst. They’ll recommend this method due to the very minimal blood loss that happens during the procedure.



Small nabothian cysts don’t need treatment. A nabothian follicle may range from 2–10 millimeters (mm) in diameter. Nabothian cysts are usually self-resolving. Large nabothian cysts can qualify to 4 centimeters (cm) in size. If an outsized nabothian follicle is causing symptoms, people may have surgery to get rid of it. To remove a nabothian cyst, a clinician may use one of the techniques listed below: Electrocautery – a procedure that includes burning the cyst using a small probe and an electrical current. Cryotherapy – a procedure that includes freezing a cyst with nitrogen.


Kushtadi Varti is often considered one of the simplest treatments for Nabothian cysts. Pippali (Piper longum), Kushta (Saussurea lappa), Arka (Calotropis gigantea) buds, and halite are triturated with goat’s urine to make Varti (medicated bougie). It’s inserted into the vagina which cures Karnini sort of uterine diseases. All the therapeutic measures prescribed for the treatment of diseases caused by Kapha also are beneficial for the cure of this ailment.
