Anatomical context of Ethinylestrenol

  • Women with inactive ovaries had uniformly low amounts of peritoneal fluid: 4.2 +/- 2.3 ml in 31 women taking combined oral contraceptive pills; 4.7 +/- 5.8 ml in 17 women taking 5 mg of lynoestrenol daily and 1.2 +/- 1.9 ml in 20 postmenopausal women with an inactive endometrium [19].
  • Stimulating properties of lynestrenol on normal human blood T-lymphocytes and other leucocytes [20].
  • A trial was carried out in 10 healthy women to study the effects of withdrawal of treatment with 0.5 mg lynestrenol per day, for 3 successive days during the pre-ovulatory phase, on the physiological properties of the cervical mucus, vaginal cytology and pituitary and ovarian functions [21].
  • Lynestrenol administration produced a statistically significant increase in the number of post-implantation loss (p = 0.05) and in the average per cent of abnormal fetuses per dose group (63%, 66%, and 87% for the medicated group, versus 12% for the placebo group, p = 0.05) [15].
  • Lynestrenol, an amplifier of lymphocyte stimulation [22].
