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. Method: The Present study is a single group, open label, clinical trial with pre-post follow up test design.

Its effectiveness was assessed before treatment (0th day) and after treatment (31st day) and after follow up (61st day) using MRS. Results: The efficacy of Satavari-yoga was assessed based on the parameters provide in MRS. Before the intervention with Satavari yoga, mean was 17.61 and after intervention mean it reduced to 5.28 and After follow up (in absence Satavari-yoga) mean was raised to 10.19.
