What does estrogen aide in?Sexual maturation, ovulation, development and maintenance of female accessory organs, and cell division in breast and endometrium.
What does progestrone aide in?Maintaining pregnancy, breast and endometrium development, maturation of endometrium cells, increased body temp, and smooth muscle relaxation.
What hormone begins the menstrual cycle?The gonadotropin releasing hormone or GnRH from the hypothalamus begins the cycle.
What happens in the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle?GnHR is released from hypothalamus. This causes pitutiary gland to release FSH and LH. FSH and LH make ovarian follicles begin to mature.
What happens in the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle?The developing follicle produces estrogen. Estrogen decreases FSH release. The strongest follicles survive the drop in FSH and continue to grow and make estrogen. Estrogen now stimulates LH release from pituitary and the LH stimulates the release of the egg. Ovulation occurs. The follicle cells become corpus luteum, making progesterone.
What happens after the body makes corpus luteum during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle?Progestrone prepares the body for pregnancy. If pregnancy does not occur, the corpus luteum dies. The drop in progesterone tells the hypothalamus to secrete GnRH and begin a new cycle.
What is dysmenorrhea?This is painful menstruation caused by an increased prostagladin secretion.
What is secondary amenorrhea?This is when you have started your period, but all the sudden it stops and never comes back. This can be from anorexia, excessive exercise, hormone imbalance, pregnancy or endometriosis.
