Abstract

Prostaglandin F (PGF) was infused into a peripheral vein of six female volunteers during the luteal phase of their cycle. At an infusion rate of 25 to 46 μg/min., no effect was observed on peripheral plasma progesterone levels and luteal phase length. Vaginal spotting was a common occurrence. It is concluded from this study that at the days and rates of infusion used, PGF is not luteolytic in the non-pregnant woman.
