Atropine implants in the preoptic-anterior hypothalamic areas (POA-AHA) block ovulation. The blocking effects depend on the side of POA-AHA and the day of the estrous cycle in which the implants are inserted. Since ovulation is the result of the growth and differentiation of ovarian follicles, the purpose of this study was to analyze the changes in follicular and atresia population in the ovaries of non-ovulating rats resulting from the unilateral atropine implants in the POA-AHA.
