The effect of a single injection of 100 μg of Buserelin on day 19 of gestation and chronic infusion of Buserelin (2.5 $\mu$g/h for 11 days) starting from day 20 of gestation on serum chorionic gonadotropin, progesterone and oestradiol-17$\beta$ was studied. Serum chorionic gonadotropin levels remained elevated for the first 48 h after the start of infusion of Buserelin. However, following injection of 100 $\mu$g of Buserelin there was a significant decrease in both serum progesterone and oestradiol-17$\beta$ levels. The two treatments had no effect on the course of pregnancy.
