Journal of Endocrinology Developmental programming: differential effects of prenatal exposure to bisphenol A or methoxychlor on reproductive function

This scientific study from the Journal of Endocrinology reports on the increased occurrence of reproductive disorders that has increased concerns regarding the impact of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) on reproductive health, especially when such exposure occurs during fetal life. According to this study, prenatal testosterone (T) treatment leads to “growth retardation, postnatal hypergonadotropism, compromised estradiol positive feedback, polycystic ovaries and infertility in the adult.”
