The effect of Rhynchosia sublobataaqueous leaf extracts on female reproductive cycle was studied in sixteen (N=16) sexually matured female wistar strain rats with regular estrous cycle. Rats were randomly divided into four (4) groups of four (n=4) rats per group. The experimental groups were treated as follows: Group I treated with 5000mg/kg, Group II with 2500mg/kg and Group III with 1000mg/kg of the aqueous Rhynchosia sublobataleaf extract and Group IV (control) received no trea tment.
