Effects of progesterone on the histology, histochemistry and ultrastructure of the albino rat uterus
Effects of progesterone on endometrium are dose dependent. The hormonal contraceptive affects the endometrium. Progestogens have an interesting and important effect upon the uterine chemistry. Changes in the activity of uterine chemistry including alkaline phosphatase studied in the mammals but rarely in rat. Rat is widely accepted as a surrogate in the study of human reproductive problems. The present study has the objective to understand the subcellular structural response to progesterone to establish a structural, functional properties concerning its contraceptive efficacy. Electron microscopy was employed to provide close intracellular scrutiny and it was not possible with light microscopy.
