Abnormal uterine contraction is one of the major causes of delayed labour leading to distress in both mother and fetus. The present study was carried out to evaluate the Role of Ela, Chavya, Chitrak nasya on abnormal uterine contraction present during 1st stage of labour. As abnormal uterine contraction can be hypotonic or hypertonic, so randomly 20 patients of hypotonic and 30 patients of hypertonic uterine contraction (i.e. total 50 patients) were registered after fulfilling the selection criteria. Three pinches of fresh powder taken and Pottali was made and its inhalation was given during inter-contraction period for 2 hours. Progress of labour was assessed with per-vaginum examination, partogram and cardiotocography recorded hourly. Significant early progress of labour and regularization of the uterine contraction were obtained in the patients of hypotonic uterine contraction.
