Oral Contraceptives, Phasic .
Contraceptives, Low-Dose Oral .
Contraceptives, Phasic Oral .
Low-Dose Oral Contraceptives .
Oral Contraceptives, Low Dose .
Phasic Oral Contraceptives .
Compounds, usually hormonal, taken orally in order to block ovulation and prevent the occurrence of pregnancy. The hormones are generally estrogen or progesterone or both. .
Ovulation Prediction .
Predicting Ovulation .
Prediction, Ovulation .
Predicting the time of OVULATION can be achieved by measuring the preovulatory elevation of ESTRADIOL; LUTEINIZING HORMONE or other hormones in BLOOD or URINE. Accuracy of ovulation prediction depends on the completeness of the hormone profiles, and the ability to determine the preovulatory LH peak. .

Effects, Endocrine Disruptor .
Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals .
Exogenous agents, synthetic and naturally occurring, which are capable of disrupting the functions of the ENDOCRINE SYSTEM including the maintenance of HOMEOSTASIS and the regulation of developmental processes. Endocrine disruptors are compounds that can mimic HORMONES, or enhance or block the binding of hormones to their receptors, or otherwise lead to activating or inhibiting the endocrine signaling pathways and hormone metabolism. .
Hormones .
Hormone .
Hormone Receptor Agonists .
Agonists, Hormone Receptor .
Receptor Agonists, Hormone .
Hormones, Synthetic .
Hormone Analogs .
Chemical substances having a specific regulatory effect on the activity of a certain organ or organs. The term was originally applied to substances secreted by various ENDOCRINE GLANDS and transported in the bloodstream to the target organs. It is sometimes extended to include those substances that are not produced by the endocrine glands but that have similar effects. .
Receptors, Steroid .
Corticosteroid Receptor .
Receptors, Steroids .
Steroid Receptor .
Receptor, Corticosteroid .
Receptor, Steroid .
Steroids Receptors .
Steroid Receptors .
Corticosteroid Receptors .
Receptors, Corticosteroid .
Proteins found usually in the cytoplasm or nucleus that specifically bind steroid hormones and trigger changes influencing the behavior of cells. The steroid receptor-steroid hormone complex regulates the transcription of specific genes. .

Cells, Leydig .
Cells, Testicular Interstitial .
Interstitial Cell, Testicular .
Testicular Interstitial Cell .
Interstitial Cells, Testicular .
Testicular Interstitial Cells .
Steroid-producing cells in the interstitial tissue of the TESTIS. They are under the regulation of PITUITARY HORMONES; LUTEINIZING HORMONE; or interstitial cell-stimulating hormone. TESTOSTERONE is the major androgen (ANDROGENS) produced. .
Dimethisterone .
Dimethisterone Monohydrate .
Monohydrate, Dimethisterone .
A synthetic progestational hormone without significant estrogenic or androgenic properties. It was formerly used as the progestational component in oral sequential contraceptives. .

Progestin Analogs .
Progestational Hormones, Synthetic .
Compounds that interact with PROGESTERONE RECEPTORS in target tissues to bring about the effects similar to those of PROGESTERONE. Primary actions of progestins, including natural and synthetic steroids, are on the UTERUS and the MAMMARY GLAND in preparation for and in maintenance of PREGNANCY. .
