Oxytocin is a peptide hormone that enhances the contraction of the smooth muscles of the uterus, bile and urinary tract and intestines. Reduces the mammary epithelial fibers of lactating animals and releases milk secretion. Its effect is enhanced by estrogen, so it has the strongest effect in the follicular phase of the sexual cycle.
