The rising level of estrogen, causes the endometrium to become thicker and more richly supplied with blood vessels. The level of estrogens in blood increases gradually for a few days and is at the peak on the 12thday of the cycle.The estrogen surge reduces FSH secretion and this in turn introduces LH surge within 12 hours i.e., on the 13thday of the cycle.LH causes ovulation and formation of corpus luteum.During post ovulatory phase corpus luteum secretes progesterone.Corpus luteum secretes progesterone, which performs the following functions:a) It facilitates the preparation of the endometrium of the uterus for receiving the blastocyst and its implantation. (whether fertilisation occurs or not)b) It inhibits the contraction of the uterus and any further development of a new follicle.c) If fertilisation does not occur, the rising progesterone level inhibits the release of Gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH), which inturn inhibits the production of FSH, LH and progesterone.d) Once the progester
