Abstract

Reproduction and female hormones is an important fertility health issue which is highly important in population planning. Given the significance of fertility and reproduction, and the side effects due to chemical drugs, the aim of this review article is to report the most important native medicinal plants of Iran effective on female hormones-estrogen, progesterone, and prolactin. The relevant articles, indexed in the databases Google Scholar, Scopus, Islamic World Science Citation Center, and Scientific Information Databases, were searched for by the key words-estrogen, progesterone, prolactin, female hormones, fertility, medicinal plants, and Iran. According to the study findings, Aloe vera, Foeniculum vulgare, Anethum graveolens, Portulaca oleracea L, Phoenix dactylifera and Allium sativum were effective on estrogen, A. graveolens, and P. dactylifera, on progesterone, and F. vulgare, and Vitex agnus-castus L. on prolactin. Out of these plants, A. graveolens, F. vulgare, and P. dactylifera exerted more pronounced effects on female hormones. In addition to protecting reproductive organs through antioxidant effects, the compounds of these plants can regulate female hormones through affecting the glands that secrete female hormones.
