The effects of estrogen replacements on uterus weight (A) and body weight (B). E2 and ERα agonist 16α-lactone-estradiol (LE2) changed the uterus weight significantly (p values for E2 and LE2 were p = 0.0001 in both cases), while DPN had no effect. In a similar way, E2 and LE2 decreased body weight significantly (p values for E2 and LE2 were p = 0.0035 and p = 0.0001, respectively). Change in body weight represents the weight difference between the weight of the animal before and after the chronic treatment. Asterisks mark statistically significant changes compared to vehicle. Error bars correspond to standard deviations.
