Stress has been acknowledged as one of the aetiologies of female reproductive dysfunction, yet the mechanismsinvolved are not totally elucidated. Based on the paucity of information on how predator-induced stress (PS) affects oestrouscycle in rats, this study was designed to investigate the effect of PS on the oestrous cycle in rats. Forty-eight (48) SpragueDawley rats were used for this study. They were randomly divided into Control and PS group. Each group was divided intofour subgroups (n=6… CONTINUE READING
