Menses occur & ovarian follicles develop
Dominant follicle releases egg -> fallopian tube (when fertilization can occur)
Dominant follicle collapses into corpus luteum & endometrium grows
Hormone that stimulates development of ovarian follicles
Stimulates estrogen secretion by ovaries
Negative feedback inhibition by estrogen
Its peak causes egg to be ejected from dominant follicle (ovulation)
Negative feedback by progesterone
Peaks in late follicular/early ovulatory
Peaks at follicular stage
Secreted by ovaries before egg is released to help: endometrial growth, ovulation preparation, fertilization, and breast growth & development
Secreted by ovaries after the egg is release from the dominant follicle; main function is to promote secretory endometrial changes
Growth of superficial layer of endometrium due to increased estrogen in follicular phase
Edematous, vascular & secretory due to increases progesterone in luteal phase
Superficial layer degenerates & sloughs off due to decrease in progesterone in luteal/follicular phase
Condition in which functional endometrial tissue is found in ectopic sites; may cause bleesing into surrounding structure causing pain
Benign smooth muscle neoplasms in the uterus mostly dx in women >35 yo
Anaplastic changes of the endometrium most often seen in postmenopause women
Local collection of milk in the breast due to obstruction
Inflammation of the breast
Fibrocystic Breast Disease
Nodular, tender breast changes that fluctuate with the menstrual cycle; cysts, increase in fibrous tissue, epithelial proliferation
Anaplastic changes of breast tissue most often in ductile tissue
