Blood samples collection to got serum were carried out four times, before first immunization, before first booster, before second booster and after second booster. The measurement of progesterone mice serum using radioimmunoassay technique. The results showed that estrous cycle and progesterone serum level of the first immunization until to the second booster injection were in conformity with follicular and luteal phase respectively. It concluded that immunization by using of gZP3 as an anti fertility substance was not altered the oestrous cycle of mice and the level of progesterone level based on its estrous cycle.
