Female hormones, i.e. progesterone and estrogen, have been shown to have direct effect on CBF, i.e., progesterone reduces CBF, 17β-estradiol and progesterone receptor antagonists counteract progesterone effects, but estradiol alone has also been shown to have no effect on CBF. However, the mechanism by which these hormones modulate CBF is yet to be elucidated (Jain et al., 2012; Jia et al., 2011).
