The article focuses on statistical analysis performed by a research team led by Scientist A.E.J. Hendriks to study the effect of estrogen on fertility. Estrogen treatment on young girls is normally performed to help them in controlling their final heights. This treatment is carried out during their adolescent stage. The results showed that although heights are controlled, the heavy dosage of estrogen can cause dose-response with regards to high frequency of infertility in later stages of life.
