FSH

Hormone that stimulates development of ovarian follicles

FSH

Stimulates estrogen secretion by ovaries

FSH

Negative feedback inhibition by estrogen

LH

Its peak causes egg to be ejected from dominant follicle (ovulation)

LH

Negative feedback by progesterone

LH

Peaks in late follicular/early ovulatory

FHS

Peaks at follicular stage

Estrogen

Secreted by ovaries before egg is released to help: endometrial growth, ovulation preparation, fertilization, and breast growth & development

Progesterone

Secreted by ovaries after the egg is release from the dominant follicle; main function is to promote secretory endometrial changes

Preovulatory

Growth of superficial layer of endometrium due to increased estrogen in follicular phase

Postovulatory

Edematous, vascular & secretory due to increases progesterone in luteal phase

Menstrual

Superficial layer degenerates & sloughs off due to decrease in progesterone in luteal/follicular phase
