The problem of stimulation of sexual function and of spermatogenesis and ovogenesis in particular, is both of biological and medical significance, as it is associated with the problem of preservation of the sexual potential of male and female individuals. According to statistical data, 10-20% of all marriages are childless. In about 30-50% of the cases, male sterility is the cause. The diagnostic and treatment of male sterility is still a very difficult task.
Key words: spermatogenesis, ovogenesis, valido, Tribulus terristris & Mucuna pruriens.
