Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the antifertility effect of N-hexane, ethyl acetate, and water fractions from C. papaya leaves on sperm motility in male Wistar rats. Method: Twenty four rats used in this study. Rats were devided into 4 groups: normal group and Carica papaya fraction group (N-hexane; ethyl acetate; and water). Rats were given Carica papaya fractions at dose 0.4 g/ Kg BW rat/day for 20 days). Carica papaya leaves were extracted by ethanol and did fractionation by liquid-liquid methods. Results and Discussion: The results of this study were N-hexane, ethyl acetate and water fractions significantly (P<0.05) produced decreased in sperm motility compered with normal group. The decresed Carica papaya fractions (N-hexane, ethyl acetate and water) were 33 %, 65%, and 75% respectively. Conclusion: Carica papaya fractions (N-hexane, ethyl acetate and water) have antifertility effect on sperm motility.
