This study was conducted to study poststerilization menstrual changes. For this purpose, 60 rats were divided into 2 groups. In the first group, rats underwent bilateral uterine horn ligation with Pomeroy method, and one ovary of each rat was excised and weighed. The other ligated ovary was left intact. In the second group, only unilateral oophorectomy was performed.
