Fine thermistor probes positioned in each end of the same oviduct and connected to the same scale were used to measure temperature gradients in the lumen before and after spontaneous ovulation in normally-cyclic gilts. Readings were taken after full surgical closure of a mid-ventral incision and a subsequent period of stabilization, but whilst animals remained under general anaesthesia. A small but consistent difference in temperature was recorded between the proximal ampulla and distal isthmus… CONTINUE READING
