There were no significance changes in the body weight (P<0.05). The Possibility of marked increase in serum estradiol level (P<0.05) significantly. Administered of REHE in mice did not show any variation in the hematological and biochemical parameters. It is raw extract of Hybanthus enneaspermus (REHE) showed on above result indicated that this alcoholic free extract of Hybanthus ennaespermus confirm the fertility effect of above study.
