Revadi and Thomas (1979) have established the existence of normal cyclic variations in the human uterine endocervical mucosa. Their further studies (1980) on endogenously-produced oestrogen states and the human uterine endocervix showed that oestrogen produces a progressive increase in endocervical mucosal cell heights which is unrivalled by the endocervix, even in the pregnant state. On the basis of these studies, they hypothesized, that though oestrogen, was probably responsible for the secretion of excessive quantities of endocervical mucus, the release of this mucus was probably mediated by progesterone. In their studies basal cell proliferation was never seen.
