ABSTRACT

The ethanolic extract of Pergularia daemia and its steroidal fraction were studied for antifertility activity. Both the ethanol extract and the steroidal fraction showed significant antifertility activity in the pre-implantation stage in female mice. The ethanol extract also showed late abortifacient activity
