Abstract

The Gravlee endometrial jet wash technique has been used to collect uterine fluid in normal human volunteers for Prostaglandin F analysis throughout the human menstrual cycle. Uterine washings so obtained demonstrated a cyclicity in prostaglandin F content with low concentrations found during the proliferative phase and a 3-4 fold rise occurring during the secretory phase. Menstrual fluid prostaglandin F content collected with the jet wash technique gave the highest total concentrations.
