Hi! I have a theoretical question about hyperestrogenemia (is that
I'm from Sweden and I've read a few articles about this. They were in
Swedish and a few years old. From what I gather (not counting adrenal
gland problems), one reason spayed females show signs of being in
estrus can be due to remaining ovarian tissue.
I have not read anything about this in English and I wondered what
the opinion today is about this? If some ovarian tissue is left in
the ferret, will a small piece produce estrogen by itself? Will it
grow and *then* produce estrogen? If so, why would it grow? Is the
hypothalamus stimulating the tissue or is there another reason?
Could anyone give an answer that's not overly technical I'd be
