Abstract: Oxytocin is typically linked to birth and lactation, but there is increasing evidence about its role in the events leading up to conception and birth. Such events include its involvement in sexual behaviour and its effects on the menstrual cycle, both of which are important in human reproduction. New evidence in its involvement in birth and lactation will also be included. Essentially, this review aims to link all these events that oxytocin is involved in from conception to birth.
