Introduction Menopause increases the incidence of metabolic diseases. The loss of ovarian function is associated with increased visceral fat along with metabolic pathologies due to chronic inflammation ( Shoelson et al . 2007 ). The ovariectomy

(Received 22 April 1976)

The albino rat ovulates 15–18 h after parturition during the dark period (Johnson, Zarrow & Denenberg, 1974) and the hormonal interrelationship preceding this post-partum ovulation is similar to that found at pro-oestrus in the normal cycle (Labhsetwar & Watson, 1974). Chatterjee & Greenwald (1971) have shown that unilateral ovariectomy of pregnant rats on days 1, 10 or 15 produces increased numbers of antral follicles within 5 days and compensatory ovulation at the post-partum oestrus. The specific time after which the pregnant rat can no longer respond to unilateral ovariectomy by increasing the number of ova shed from the remaining ovary at the post-partum ovulation has not previously been evaluated. The present experiments were therefore designed to determine this time. Furthermore, such findings would elucidate, physiologically, when those follicles which
