    1. From Dr. Isaac:

      There are many studies out there but the bottom line is that carbon dioxide probably doesn’t have much effect on uterine blood flow. Estrogens and progesterone are the major factors affecting blood flow in vessels supplying the uterus. The factors that modulate, complement and support vasodilation and vasoconstriction are: PGE2, LH, oxytocin, cytokines, neurotransmitters and other local blood flow regulators.
