We suggest that neonatal exposure to 500 [micro]g BPA (a dose higher than the LOAEL) provoked irreversible alterations in the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis that led to anovulation and infertility, and that 50 [micro]g BPA (a dose lower than the LOAEL) provoked more subtle alterations at the hypothalamic level that could lead to subfertility.
