Srotus(body channels) is considered as an important entity of the body and is responsible for the Vahana(transferring) of Dosha,
Dhatu etc. Full body is considered as Srotomaya(made of Srotus). Among the types of Srotus, Artavavaha Srotus(which does Mutra
Vahana) is given prime importance which is only present in females. The root of Artavavaha Srotus is considered as
Garbhashaya(Uterus) and Artavavaha dhamani(vessels carrying Artava). Injury to Artavavaha Srotus leads to infertility, dysperunia
and dysmenorrhea.
As per context Artava can be considered as ovum and menstrual bleeding i.e. Beejarupi Artava and Drustartava respectively. The
Beejarupi Artava released from Ovary researches the Garbhashaya and unites with Shukra(sperm) to form Garbha(fetus). Bleeding
phase plays a very important role to know the fruitful period of coitus (for formation of Garbha). Artava which is accumulated in a
month is drawn towards the vaginal orifice by Vata through the Dhamani’s and this is called as Drustartava. Considering two
dimensions of the word Artava (Beejarupi, Drusta) and Garbha formation, Mula of Artavavaha Srotus is being mentioned as
Garbhashaya and Artavavaha Dhamani.
The release of Beejarupi Artava will be fruitful when it reaches the Garbhashaya and unites with Shukra and forms Garbha, hence
Garbhashaya is considered as one of the Mula of Artavavaha Srotus. For a fruitfull coitus period (for formation of Garbha)
Rajasrava Kala plays a important role which is due to Vahana of Artava through Artavavaha Dhamani, hence Artavavaha Dhamani is
considered as the Mula of Artavavaha Srotus.
Similarly Srotomula of each and every Srotus should be analyzed along with its Mula and there is a need of further study in the field
of Srotus and Srotomula.
