The association between ovarian arterial blood flow (OBF), as measured with electromagnetic blood-flow transducers, and the concentrations of progesterone, estrone and estradiol-17 beta in systemic blood were determined throughout the estrous cycle and the first 21 days of pregnancy in four sows (first day of estrus or mating=Day 0). Changes in OBF were positively correlated (P less than 0.01) with the concentrations of progesterone in systemic blood throughout the estrous cycle (requal+0.63… CONTINUE READING
