It is mentioned in Charka Samhita that vitiated Vata and Pitta Dosha are the reasons for defective semen and it is suggested that semen disorders should be treated properly by involving dosha and dhatus after the examination. As impotency caused by the defect in semen is cured by the elimination of the defect itself. It is believed that intake of cold, rough, uncooked food and incompatible food, as well as deficiency of rasa (dhatus), exertion, anxiety, fear, grief, etc., causes impotency due to loss of seed (semen).
