Result and conclusion: The chloroform and alcoholic extract was found to be more potent in causing significant anti-implantation activity at the tested dose of 200 mg/kg and 400 mg/kg body weight. The extracts further showed more significant increase in uterine weight in immature ovariectomised rats. It revealed that administration of extract with ethinyl estradiol causing significant anti-estrogenic activity.
