AIM To assess the effect of ICON (trade name of lambda-cyhalothrin) on sexual competence and fertility of male rats. METHODS Male rats were gavaged daily for 7 consecutive days with different doses of ICON (63 mg/kg and 100 mg/kg) or vehicle (distilled water). Their sexual behaviour and fertility were evaluated at different time points during treatment and post-treatment using receptive females. RESULTS Treatment had no effect on fertility, but sexual competence was seriously impaired… 
Effects of IconÒ, a pyrethroid insecticide on early pregnancy of rats
TLDR
Exposure to IconÒ during early gestation may result in a threat to pregnancy, and progesterone had a protective effect against Icon Ò induced anti-reproductive actions.
Protective role of caffeic acid on lambda cyhalothrin-induced changes in sperm characteristics and testicular oxidative damage in rats
TLDR
Results indicate that LC exerts significant harmful effects on the male reproductive system and that CAPE reduced the deleterious effects of LC on male fertility.
Reproductive toxicity and histopathological changes induced by lambda‐cyhalothrin in male mice
TLDR
The results indicate that LCT has reproductive toxicity, hepatotoxicity, nephrotoxicity, and splenotoxicity in male mice at the tested doses.

The objective of the current study was to analyze the reproductive toxicity caused by lambda-cyhalothrin (LCT) in male rabbits, and to evaluate the possible protective effect of vitamin E (Vit. E) as

The synthetic pyrethroids are expected to cause deleterious effects on most of the organs and especially on the male reproductive system. The current study was performed to assess the adverse effect
Reproductive adverse effects of fipronil in Wistar rats.
TLDR
Results of the present study indicate that fipronil may alter the normal functioning of the endocrine system and cause adverse reproductive effects in female rats.
HEMATOLOGICAL AND HISTOPATHOLOGICAL CHANGES IN THE TESTES AND SEMINAL VESICLE OF RATS FOLLOWING REPEATED EXPOSURE TO LAMBDA-CYHALOTHRIN
Lambda-cyhalothrin (LCT) is a type II pyrethroid insecticide widely used in pest management. The purpose of the current study was to evaluate the toxic effects of LCT on hematological and
Endocrine disrupting potential and reproductive dysfunction in male mice exposed to deltamethrin
TLDR
Exposure to deltamethrin affected the reproductive system of male mice explored by altered total sperm density, motility, and morphology in mice spermatozoa by significantly decreased their testosterone and inhibin B levels.
Parastar insecticide induced changes in reproductive parameters and testicular oxidative stress biomarkers in Wistar male rats
TLDR
Evaluating the effects of Parastar on reproductive parameters and testicular oxidative stress in adult albino Wistar male rats found it negatively affected male reproductive function through alteration of testosterone levels, sperm parameters and induction of oxidative stress.
Influence of Permethrin and Cypermethrin on Behavior in the Mouse
TLDR
Upon long-term dermal exposure, synthetic pyrethroids may lead to increased motor activity, decreased grasping tendency and/or ability, increased apathy, and increased despair in the mouse animal model.

Effects of Terminalia catappa seeds on sexual behaviour and fertility of male rats.
TLDR
The kernel of T. catappa seeds has aphrodisiac activity and may be useful in the treatment of certain forms of sexual inadequacies, such as premature ejaculation.
Long-term administration of large doses of paracetamol impairs the reproductive competence of male rats.
TLDR
Long-term use of high doses of paracetamol may be detrimental to male reproductive competence and the antireproductive effect was not due to a general toxicity but due to an increase in pre-implantation losses resulting from oligozoospermia.
The estrogenic and antiandrogenic pesticide methoxychlor alters the reproductive tract and behavior without affecting pituitary size or LH and prolactin secretion in male rats
TLDR
It is demonstrated that M affects the CNS, epididymal sperm numbers, and the accessory sex glands and delays mating without significantly affecting the secretion of LH, prolactin, or testosterone.
Neonatal exposure to technical methoxychlor alters pregnancy outcome in female mice.
TLDR
It is concluded that neonatal exposure to MXC does not interfere with mating and instead, significant alterations are seen in initiating and/or maintaining pregnancy.
Reduction in libido and fertility of male rats by administration of the nitric oxide (NO) synthase inhibitor N-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester.
TLDR
The results suggest that No is essential for the expression of normal libido and fertility in male rats and it is likely that NO is required both in the male reproductive tract and in the brain.
Influence of male copulatory behavior on sperm transport, pregnancy and pseudopregnancy in female rats.
TLDR
The mechanisms by which intromissions affect sperm transport are discussed and the functional utility of the normal mating sequence and multiple intromission pattern are related to the female's reproductive physiology.
Lack of Effect of Corticosterone Administration on Male Sexual Behavior of Rats
TLDR
The data show that, unlike amphibians and female mammals, corticosteroids do not alter sexual behavior in male rats and suggest that the effect of stress on male sexual behavior cannot be explained by increases in corticosterone.
Neonatal exposure to potent and environmental oestrogens and abnormalities of the male reproductive system in the rat: evidence for importance of the androgen‐oestrogen balance and assessment of the relevance to man
TLDR
It is suggested that many of the adverse changes to the testis and reproductive tract induced by exposure to oestrogens result from a combination of high oestrogen and low androgen action.
Effects of experimentally-induced chronic hyperprolactinemia on testosterone and gonadotropin levels in male rats and mice.
TLDR
In inbred CD-F rats and DBA/2J mice with chronic hyperprolactinemia induced by grafting 4 anterior pituitaries from adult females of the same strain under the kidney capsule, testicular and pituitary function was examined.
Semen quality and sexual hormones in greenhouse workers.
TLDR
The results are compatible with the hypothesis that male fecundity may be at risk from exposure to pesticides in the manual handling of cultures in greenhouses.
