We tested the hypothesis that estrogen and hCG can modify blood flow in the rabbit corpus luteum. Radioactively labeled microspheres were used to measure luteal blood flow in pseudopregnant rabbits in which estrogen had been withdrawn to initiate premature luteal regression and in pseudopregnant rabbits injected with hCG. Removal of estradiol-filled… CONTINUE READING
