Estradiol must be administered to gilts on d 11 and d 14-16 or daily from d 11-15 to obtain interestrous intervals of > 60 d. This suggests that two phases of estradiol, similar to that produced by conceptuses on d 11-13 and d 15-30, are necessary for prolonged secretion of POF into the uterine lumen.
