  1. anestrus, anestrum, anoestrus, anoestrumnoun

    applies to nonhuman mammals: a state or interval of sexual inactivity between two periods of estrus


  1. anestrum

    The estrous cycle (from Latin oestrus 'frenzy', originally from Ancient Greek οἶστρος (oîstros) 'gadfly') is the set of recurring physiological changes that are induced by reproductive hormones in most mammalian therian females. Estrous cycles start after sexual maturity in females and are interrupted by anestrous phases, otherwise known as "rest" phases, or by pregnancies. Typically, estrous cycles repeat until death. These cycles are widely variable in duration and frequency depending on the species. Some animals may display bloody vaginal discharge, often mistaken for menstruation. Many mammals used in commercial agriculture, such as cattle and sheep, may have their estrous cycles artificially controlled with hormonal medications for optimum productivity. The male equivalent, seen primarily in ruminants, is called rut.


  1. anestrum

    Anestrus is a physiological stage in the female reproductive cycle where the individual is not in a state of sexual readiness and cannot conceive because there is no ovarian activity. This period can occur post-pregnancy, seasonally, or due to health issues or stress. It is commonly observed in dogs, cows, and other mammals.
