Sexual EDC-ucation: What we Have Learned About Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals and Reproduction

Sexual EDC-ucation: What we Have Learned About Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals and Reproduction Purpose of ReviewIn this review, the authors summarize findings from recent literature (published work between 2015 and 2019) as it pertains to how endocrine-disrupting chemical (EDC) exposure affects reproduction and fecundity in rodents.Recent FindingsMany studies within recent literature have reported the effects of EDCs on sociosexual choice, ultrasonic vocalizations, sexual behavior, and fecundity. However, a handful of studies investigating the same endpoints report no effects. EDCs are difficult chemicals to study due to their complex nature. Many factors can mitigate or dampen their observable effects. Authors summarize and discuss presented results and possible sources of inconsistency.SummaryBoth historic and current literature illuminate that reproductive endpoints are affected by EDC exposure, and thus, further exploration of this topic is both warranted and essential. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Current Sexual Health Reports Springer Journals

Abstract

Purpose of ReviewIn this review, the authors summarize findings from recent literature (published work between 2015 and 2019) as it pertains to how endocrine-disrupting chemical (EDC) exposure affects reproduction and fecundity in rodents.Recent FindingsMany studies within recent literature have reported the effects of EDCs on sociosexual choice, ultrasonic vocalizations, sexual behavior, and fecundity. However, a handful of studies investigating the same endpoints report no effects. EDCs are difficult chemicals to study due to their complex nature. Many factors can mitigate or dampen their observable effects. Authors summarize and discuss presented results and possible sources of inconsistency.SummaryBoth historic and current literature illuminate that reproductive endpoints are affected by EDC exposure, and thus, further exploration of this topic is both warranted and essential.
