Microagglutination of human spermatozoa was induced in vitro in a dose dependent manner by the addition of the ethinyl estra­diol to a serum with increased levels of β-lipoprotein. Surface changes in spermatozoa secondary to estrogens have been postu­lated; an analogues mechanism for the platelet changes in women on hormonal contraceptives is proposed.
