The steroid hormones estrogen (E) and progesterone (P) are known to modify pain sensitivity; however, the relative role of each of these hormones in this process is not well understood. To systematically investigate the effects of E and P on nociception, pain sensitivity was assessed under several hormone conditions. Tailflick (TF) latencies were measured every other day in 10 cycling female rats and 10 female rats during luteal functioning (pseudopregnancy). Thirty ovariectomized (OVX) rats… CONTINUE READING
