Abstract: Ayurveda the most ancient science forms the base for many other sciences is incredible. Our Acharyas had deep insight pertaining to Garbha Sharir, which is the same as that of the modern science. Many factors mentioned in Ayurveda towards the study of development of foetus and genetics including fertilization and sex determination, Ayurveda considered two basic factors in the development of human beings i.e. Shukra and Shonita it represents that of sperm and ovum in modern medical science and which are responsible for the fertilization. In these contexts Charaka clearly stated that dominance of Shonita during conception resulting procreation of female child and dominance of Shukra (sperm) leads to male child. The sex of an individual is determined by the X and Y chromosome. Sexual dimorphism, i.e. the distinct recognition of only two sexes per species, is the phenotypic expression of a multi-stage procedure at chromosomal, gonadal, hormonal and behavioural level. Two methods of sex determination by the presence or absence of sex chromosomes have been found. One is Protenor method and other Lygaeus method. In this method the primary signal for sexual development is the X: A ratio and not the presence of Y chromosome. In this method the primary signal for sex determination is chromosome composition and the presence of Y. An attempt is made to bring out similarities between both the sciences.
