Ethanol extract of the plant Aristalochia tagala Cham. (Fam: Aristalochiasae) was investigated for antifertility activity in female Wistar rats. Rats treated with the plant extract showed reduction in the number of corpora lutea and implantation sites. The extract exhibited significant activity (72%) on oral administration of 100 mg/kg and 100% activity at a dose of 200 mg/kg.
