Abstract

Prostaglandin F levels were determined in monkey uterine fluid collected daily from a silicone tubing collection system surgically installed in adult female rhesus monkeys. Sampling was obtained from intact and ovariectomized - hormone treated monkeys. During the primate menstrual cycle, uterine fluid prostaglandin F levels showed a cyclic pattern in concentration with highest values recorded during the 18-20th day of the cycle. Estrogen treatment to the ovariectomized female elicited a striking and marked increase in uterine fluid prostaglandin F levels while progesterone treatment had little effect. These results suggest that the presence of uterine fluid prostaglandin F is estrogen dependent and may be causely related to the control of menstrual cyclicity.
