Abstract : Evaluation of herbs has been in progress worldwide for several decades to identify effective and safe substances for fertility regulation. This approach proved to be a good alternative to synthetic drugs. The present study was carried out to find out the antifertility activity of ethanolic extract of Citrus limonum seeds. The extract was administered orally for 30 days. The extract showed a significant reduction in sperm count. (p<0.001) at a dose level of 500mg/kg b.wt. Therefore it is suggested that lemon seeds can be a good alternative for regulating sperm parameters.
