The study aims at preliminary phytochemical investigation and antifertility activity of dried flowers of Woodfordia fruticosa Kurz. The dried flowers were extracted successively with various solvents and individually with water and aqueous alcohol (50:50). The extracts were evaluated for phytochemical studies, including qualitative tests and high performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC) analysis. Antifertility activity of successive alcoholic, individual aqueous and individual hydroalcoholic extracts was studied in female albino rats. The results revealed that the alcoholic extract showed significant abortifacient activity, whereas aqueous and hydroalcoholic extracts showed moderate activity as compared to the control. Thus, the successive alcoholic extract showed promising abortifacient activity at 100 mg/kg body weight.
