Abstract

Stress impacts nonhuman primate menstrual cycle length but the impact of quarantine is unknown. A retrospective analysis was performed on cycle data from 31 wild-caught baboons during and following quarantine. Cycling initiated in 94 days (19–181) and length normalized within 4–6 cycles. Quarantine significantly impacts menstrual cycle length.
