The effect of progesterone implants on ovulation and plasma levels of LH, FSH and progesterone in anoestrous ewes



The effect of progesterone implants on ovulation and plasma levels of LH, FSH and progesterone in anoestrous ewes



Journal of Reproduction and Fertility 44(1): 59-68



The effects of 100-mg progesterone implants in anoestrous ewes on plasma progesterone and gonadotrophin levels are described. Implant removal resulted in a surge of plasma gonadotrophins and ovulation, but there was no evidence of behavioural oestrus in 90% of the ewes.
