Effects of opioid receptor blockade on luteinizing hormone (LH) pulses and interpulse LH concentrations in normal women during the early phase of the menstrual cycle.

Abstract

To determine the role of endogenous opioid peptides in regulating pulsatile luteinizing hormone (LH) release in the early follicular phase of the menstrual cycle of eumenorrheic women, we evaluated serum LH concentrations in blood collected every 10 min for 12 h in 27 women each studied during two menstrual cycles: (1) without pretreatment and (2) following… (More)
