Abstract


Infertility is a topical problem. Many women have difficulty conceiving; among the main causes is ovarian dysfunction. In most cases, women resort to medicine, but there are those who prefer to use medicinal plants recognized for their fertility power. The objective of our study was to test the medicinal plant "Thymus vulgaris" on fertility in female rabbits. We submitted the rabbits to a "Decapeptyl" to block their ovarian function. Then we tried to unblock it with a stimulant "Purugon" and with thyme. After the sacrifice, we made histological sections to observe the evolution of oogenesis. The results were very encouraging, the microscopic observations of the cuts of the ovaries showed that after the voluntary blockade of oogenesis, the follicular cycle was stopped and there were no mature follicles, then the introduction of the hormone Purugon Activated the ovary again, although the thyme had a similar role as that of the stimulation hormone, for the rabbits who consumed the thyme, there was a restart of the ovogenesis after its blocking. We therefore observed mature eggs ready for ovulation. Therefore, thyme has a fertilizing effect.
