The neural control systems for the ovulatory cycle and lordosis behavior are sexually differentiated by estrogen during the perinatal period in rats. In the present study, the effects of a single neonatal injection with the phytoestrogen, coumestrol, on female reproductive functions were investigated. Female rats were injected subcutaneously with 1 or 3mg coumestrol (CM1, CM3), 1mg genistein (GS1), 1mg estradiol (E2), or oil at day 5 after birth (birth day=day 1) and an estrous cycle check and… CONTINUE READING
