The display of female sexual behavior in guinea pigs is strongly correlated with the concentration of cytoplasmic progestin receptors in hypothalamic-preoptic area-septum (HPS). These progestin receptors increase in concentration in the HPS after a period of oestrogen priming. The synergistic actions of oestrogen and progestin may not only influence noradrenergic transmission, but noradrenergic transmission may influence the degree of synergy between oestrogen and progestin.
