64 ovariectomized rats were divided into four groups (each group n=16): 1) electromagnetic field exposure, 2) sham exposure, 3) cage control, and 4) 17β-estradiol injection (as positive control).
Since the rat estrous cycle lasts four days, three consecutive days of exposure were selected followed by sacrifice on day 4.
Modulation type: pulsed
Exposure duration: continuous for 4 hr/day on 3 consecutive days
