1. Antifertility effects of ethanolic leaf extracts of Alstonia scholaris, Cleistanthus collinus and Terminalia bellirica and root extract of Murraya paniculata were observed in male albino rats after oral administration (100 mg/kg/day per animal for 21 days). 2. None of these extracts interfered with spermatogtnesis but females mated by males treated with A. scholaris, M. paniculata and T. bellirica showed significant luteolytic and anti-implantational effect. 3. Abortifacient effect was shown by M. paniculata only. 4. A significant reduction in sex desire (libido) was also observed in males treated with C. collinus.
