A correlation between ovarian steroids and ovarian abnormalities is demonstrated. The decrease in levels of ovarian estrogen and progesterone is correlated, one week later, with an increase in polyovular follicles and then in multinucleate ova. The time sequence of the onset of ovarian abnormalities, as correlated with levels of estrogens and progesterone are an indication of the possibility of hormonal control of the ovarian abnormalities.
