The effects on endometrial morphology of a single, intramuscular dose of 100 mg of progesterone administered in the early luteal phase, between days LH + 1 and LH + 6, were studied in a group (n = 8) of normal, fertile subjects by morphometric techniques and transmission electron microscopy. While the dose of progesterone administered consistently resulted in an increase of salivary progesterone concentration to above the upper limit of the reference range, no significant effect on endometrial development was observed; in particular, endometrial development was not advanced.
