According to the high levels of phytoestrogens in flaxseed, the use of this plant in early pregnancy causes disturbances. That’s why, the effect of aqueous extract of flaxseed on fetal weight, placental weight and the number of hofbauer cell was determined. Nine groups of Balb/c, each includes ten adult females were selected. The experimental groups received (0.05،0.1،0.2،3.75،7.5،15، 21 mg/kg. b. w) of flaxseed. The control group received no medication, and the sham group received only distilled water. The samples were taken at 15 of gestation. Weight of Fetal, placental weight and the number of hofbauer cell measured and analyzed as well. The results were analyzed by Duncan, ANOVA and TUKY test between the control and experimental group.
