Prenatal stress and postnatal androgen: effects on reproduction in female rats.

Abstract

Heat-resistant stress applied to pregnant rats during the last trimester disrupts oestrus cycles in female offspring and alters adrenal, ovarian and uterine weights at autopsy. Sexual receptivity is left intact. Prenatal stress may operate by increasing exposure of fetal females to androgens in utero.
