Three experiments determined: (1) whether progesterone treatment would reverse the effects of estradiol benzoate (EB) on meal patterns of ovariectomized (OVX) rats, and (2) whether changes in gastrointestinal transit were responsible for the EB-induced changes in meal patterns. Progesterone (5 mg/day) reversed the effects of EB by increasing meal size and decreasing meal frequency in OVX, EB-treated rats. Progesterone had no effect on these measures in OVX rats that were not given EB. In a… CONTINUE READING
