Abstract

Estrogens influence fertility and infertility in animals. This chapter reviews the use of estrogen as a contraceptive through the regulation of its production and action. It is concluded that the use of specific agonists and antagonists of estrogen action that avoid the global and unwanted side effects of estrogen offers new potential methods of contraception.
