Abstract:

The research investigated the heamatological indices of Sida rhombifolia ethanolic leaf extract on micronor induced infertility in female rats. Sida rhombifolia is a shrub from the family of Malvaceae. Forty eight (48) female albino rats were randomly placed into six (6) study groups of eight (8) rats each and designated as; positive control group (PC) placed on distill water and normal feeds, micronor control group (MC) induced with micronor but not treated with Sida rhombifolia, Sida rhombifolia control group (SRC), (SRM1, SRM2, SRM3) induced with micronor and treated with ethanolic leaf extract of Sida rhombifolia at concentrations of 100mg/kg, 200 mg/kg and 400 mg/kg body weight respectively for 14 days. Animals treated with 200mg/kg and 400mg/kg Sida rhombifolia ethanolic leaf extract showed a significant increase in white blood cell count activity and neutrophil concentration compared to the micronor control. There was also a significant increase (P<0.05) in the red blood cell counts of the extract treated group compared to the positive control. The extract was found to be non-toxic as seen in the extract fed normal rats. Findings depicts that ethanolic leaf extract of Sida rhombifolia possessed some hematopoitic effect on micronor induced infertility in female rats.
